I wanted to read this because I enjoy The Financial Diet's youtube channel, but I wasn't expecting too much from it. It was a cute book to read and was designed very well which made it enjoyable, but it felt a bit too surface level for me. The most detailed part of the book was the section on recipes which seems like a mistake for a book about finances. If you've never made any ever effort to think about your finances then I think this might be a good book for you, but even if all you've ever done is watch the TFD youtube channel you might be better off with something else to really learn some things (honestly just watch the youtube channel).
All in all, this is a fun and practical introduction to personal finance. It's witty, honest, and offers a refreshing outlook on money and living a balanced life.
Overall, would recommend as a good jumpstart to your financial journey and especially if you love the TFD Channel!
Now onto the insides, as the Author's Note says in the front, "This book is intended solely as a source of inspiration and information for readers who wish to take charge of creating a healthier financial future for themselves." This book is the perfect stepping stone for people who know that money is important, but aren't sure how to make it work for them. There isn't a lot of specified advice because the book isn't a financial advisor, it's an inspiration. You'll close the back cover and want to explore more into the world of finance and you'll want to build a budget, no doubt about that.
I particularly loved the section about money and relationships because money can still be exceptionally uncomfortable to talk open and honestly about and that section will make that difficulty much easier to tackle.
I would seriously recommend this for a high school graduate to get them off on the right foot and for them to know that they aren't alone when it comes to money stresses. It'd also be great for those who are older, but are still unsure of how to handle their financial selves. It's all about personal inspiration, rather than hard and fast financial rules so do bear that in mind before diving in. Now stop reading this and get yourself a copy.

I absolutely have no regrets, the book is a great starting point for anyone who feels inadequate or unprepared for finance decisions.
I love the tone of voice in the book - simple, straightforward language style, feels more like a discussion than theory or teaching.
I adore the layout and design - this keeps my constantly distracted mind at bay and makes the pages of great info easy to digest and engaging.
Overall a nice, easy starting place for your financial journey with no scoldings or feelings of embarassment, just open, honest info.
