Publisher's Summary

How to get good with money, even if you have no idea where to start.

The Financial Diet is the personal finance book for people who don't care about personal finance. Whether you're in need of an overspending detox, buried under student debt, or just trying to figure out how to live on an entry-level salary, The Financial Diet gives you tools to make a budget, understand investments, and deal with your credit. Chelsea Fagan has tapped a range of experts to help you make the best choices for you, but she also knows that being smarter with money isn't just about what you put in the bank. It's about everything — from the clothes you put in your closet, to your financial relationship habits, to the food you put in your kitchen (instead of ordering in again). So The Financial Diet gives you the tools to negotiate a raise and the perfect cocktail recipe to celebrate your new salary.

The Financial Diet will teach you:

  • How to get good with money in a year.
  • The ingredients everyone needs to have a budget-friendly kitchen.
  • How to talk about awkward money stuff with your friends.
  • The best way to make (and stick to!) a budget.
  • How to take care of your house like a grown-up.
  • What the hell it means to invest (and how you can do it).

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great book!

This year one of my goals was to find strong, smart, badass women to act as mentors in my life and to look to for inspiration and I definately found that with this book. I bought it initially for the financial advice but this book comes with so much more than that. It is a beautiful balance of practical information and empowering advice and is presented in a very relatable way. I am very grateful to have found this book! Thank you Chelsea Fagan from one boss lady to another!

All young women should read this...

Very to the point, but still enough info to make understandable. It's not long drawn out. I thought the authors did a good job of making the financial diet relatable to others. I really enjoyed hearing stories and advice and interviews with others about their own financial experiences and careers. I think all young women should read this book.

Great book!

Very insightful and inspiring! I like how Chelsea, the author and narrator, has a very relatable approach to finance, as well as using personal experiences to make the listener comprehend better her explanations. Great "read" :)

I LOVED This Book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

100% yes, it was informative, easy to follow, and the printable that comes with it is VERY helpful.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Financial Diet?

I like the chapter where they talked about how to cook more food at home in order to save money, complete with recipes!

What about Chelsea Fagan’s performance did you like?

I thought she was a very clear performer, easy to understand!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I preferred to break it up, sometimes even listening to a section more than once - I wanted to be able to absorb the material. Will definitely be listening to this one over and over again.

Fantastic book!

Would you listen to The Financial Diet again? Why?

Yes! This book gave me the courage to REALLY look at my life and my spendings and I feel like this gave me a better grip on it all.

What does Chelsea Fagan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her own voice? It feels like it's really her saying it to you in perticular, it feels sincere

fan of the YouTube channel - fan of the book!

first off let me state that I am probably smack in the middle of the target demographic for this book. I already know TFD from their blog and YouTube channel, so I was exciting to read the book! it was nice to have an in order guide for really getting my $ life in order. and it's great to have digital copies of the info graphics available. the book is a good basic strating guide for getting you to think about money in the right way, it is not a textbook for answering all your financial questions more of a primer to get you going in the right direction. As a 20-somthing women it was inspiring and helpful, already knowing TFD there were no major surprises and already familiar with Chelsea Fagans voice from YouTube I didn't mind her as a narrator.

Excellent introduction for young adults

Female centric but good advice for everyone. A nice dash of humor thrown in to liven up the discussion. Well done.

Reddit Summary Read Aloud

Any additional comments?

The book more or less was a short regurgitation of basic knowledge one can get from reading simple reddit personal finance side bars. Spent more money than I should have and would have been better off in an emergency fund for the lack of any depth and short listen.
