"Personal finance books are normally dull. Jason Butler has created something different – financial and investment information that we can all consume and understand…..effectively Edible finance.
In his usual open and self-deprecating manner Jason teaches us, in bite size chunks, useful and practical lessons about money. This easy to read personal finance book is not patronising and certainly not Dull."
FPFS Director Xentum & Co-founder Next Gen Planners
"Jason was a highly respected financial adviser for many years, so when he writes a personal finance book that draws on hundreds of client stories you take notice.
I don't often enjoy personal finance books as they are full of jargon and judgement. This book is different. It reads on a level that is easy to understand and follow. You won’t go far wrong following Jason’s advice in this book whatever stage you are at with your finances."
