A while ago I reviewed Rob Carrick’s excellent book – new book “Rob Carricks’s Guide to What’s Good, Bad and Downright Awful in Canadian Investments Today“. I managed to get a copy of his previous book, “How to Pay Less and Keep More For Yourself: The Essential Consumer Guide to Canadian Banking and Investing” out of the library and gave it a quick read. How to Pay Less and Keep More For Yourself is a pretty good book. It’s more basic than his most recent book and a bit dated in a few places. However, there is a lot of good advice regarding banking ie bank accounts, credit cards and mortgages. The investing section is pretty good too. Most MSB readers would be better served getting this book from the library, however it might make a good gift for someone who is just getting started with managing their own money.
