It is a book by a finance guru who uses loads of examples to illustrate his many and varied points. Somewhat surprisingly this actually makes a big difference to how relevant the book feels and makes a finance book really interesting in its own right
Chloe Hope, “The Advocate Newspaper”, Saturday, May 21, 2011
This book comprises 16 chapters; exploring key areas that will inspire readers to achieve their financial goals through the implementation of sound advice and wealth habit building. It is an informative, well paced read that refreshingly doesn’t lose momentum through the use of heavy jargon

I wish I had read this book 40 years ago. The information is simple and straightforward but most importantly, very, very useful.

After more than 50 years engaged in the practice of the law, and many years in teaching future lawyers, I commend OLD HEAD ON YOUNG SHOULDERS to all practicing lawyers – regardless of age – and to all would -be practitioners of the law. A close and critical study of the text should serve well not only those lawyers in their personal affairs but also their clients

Old Head on Young Shoulders, what a good publication. I really enjoyed the range of topics covered and the excellent examples provided. Charles’ background in Law and Financial Planning ensured he covered so many complex issues so clearly and well. I have recommended it to my pupils at school and will be giving each of my family members a copy. Pity books like this did not exist when we started earning, we would all have been better off.

Charles Kemp, Educator and Company Director
Really enjoyed the book. To the point, it breaks it down to lay language and concepts and inspires me to think/ plan more about money and other resources. Well written.
Kristi Foale, Partner, Simmons Wolfhagen
I’ve always thought I should know more about financial choices but was too put off by the complexity of the subject. Charles Badenach’s book totally ironed out these complexities and presented simple explanations using everyday examples we can all relate to. I was surprised to find I was actually interested ! I feel like I’ve pulled my head out of the sand and come away with a whole new (healthier) attitude toward money and investments. Everyone should have a copy.
Meg Bignell, Actress
Talk about educational and easy to understand – why has no one written this before? A one stop book that covers everything that will put your life on track. Thank you Charles for teaching me things that I’ve always wondered about but never knew who to ask, I now understand what I need to do to progress to the next stage of my life – my shoulders aren’t that young. Why wasn’t this written when I was young?

For a busy professional working in my own business the book OLD HEAD ON YOUNG SHOULDERS provided me with a concise summary of the choices we need to make to achieve financial security. The book is littered with many practical examples which make what can often appear to be a very dry subject interesting and engaging. I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone interested in learning more about improving their financial position. In short this book is well worth reading

This is a book which answers many of the financial questions I have always had but never had the courage to ask. The book is straight forward, easy to read and littered with information that will be useful for readers of all ages. A book worth reading
I often have friends who ask me for advice or what they could do to make more money. After reading Old Head on Young Shoulders I now have the simplest answer. Buy this book ! It is a complete guide to financial security. One friend in particular , whom I purchased the book for, has started his own business doing what he loves and continues to read the book over and over again. His business has been open less than 6 months and he has already outgrown its premises.
