(...) Author P. A. Simon has delivered a highly engaging read which offers realistic and effective strategies for money management no matter what your work and life circumstances are. One of the things which impressed me the most about the work was the narrative skill of the author, who presents a practical guidebook with clear, direct prose, but also has an empowering and inspiring spirit in the words to show that anyone can achieve financial freedom if they work hard at it. There are no quick fixes here, simply an honest guide that is well organized and easy to follow, with plenty of opportunities to reference back and implement different ideas when they are appropriate. I also felt that the flow of the volume developed from more simple ideas through to the overall philosophy, ending on a powerful note. Overall, I would certainly recommend How to Manage Money When You're Not Earning Enough to any reader seeking to know more about effective money management.
