Finally, the key to wealth, shared in easy to understand and reachable steps

After years of putting off reviewing my finances, I discovered a website that assisted me to do such. However, as Wilson shares in The Wealth Chef, there is more to wealth than simply saving money. I knew there must be more to wealth, and set about trying to find out more. I began reading the financial pages, thus learning more, yet I was still looking for the keys. I wanted a rapid education on finances, and found this

A good guide with practical advice that anyone on the journey to financial freedom should probably read. It starts with basic, common sense concepts and expands to touch on the more advanced areas. It does not profess to be the be-all and end-all of your journey, it allows you to work out your goal for yourself and it contains sound advice - based on personal experience. I am mostly skeptical of self-help-style books, especially related to finance, but this was worth the buy, and I will ...more

I consider myself to have approximately average financial knowledge, and I was looking for something to enhance that. In particular, I was looking for "recipes" to combine financial and investing techniques to enhance returns. Despite the title and stated premise of the book, there are none here. Although it's a nice idea if it had been carried out with more effort and thought, the cooking analogy is stretched to the breaking point, and instead ends up being filler/padding rather than a driving ...more

Awesome fantastic!!!!! , financial literacy and financial management guide book. I would call it an every day meal . Its not a book to buy and give away but a book to buy and repeat the fully elaborated daily tasks,habits and consistent financial practices. SIMPLY ITS AN AWESOME BOOK EVERYONE SHOULD GET ONE.

This is recommended for anyone who doesn't have a financial background, or for those who have but need a reminder to be as diligent in their personal finances as their work finances.

Most of it struck me as common sense, or something I'd read elsewhere. Despite that, there are some helpful step-by-step guides to get you where you need to be.

A great overview to take control of your finances and expand them with a clear vision in mind. Ann Wilson guides the reader sharing her own stories and experiences.

This book was lent to me by a friend and I really enjoyed it. I thought that it might be a bit cheesy at first with the idea of comparing financial elements to recipes, however, I think that it will be a book that I’ll dip into from time to time.

It has crossed my mind before that keeping a budget financially can be compared to keeping within our calorie control, especially as I tend to go over on both! There are tips in this book about insurance, keeping a will, checking out investments and a

So i bought "The Wealth Chef" by Ann Wilson back in 2014 when my aunt called me, super excited, and said I just have to read this book! I started it, realised it actually required so much work, then abandoned it for about 4 years This book has helped me confront my money. Like really confront my money habits. I am so glad I am doing this now. I actually read through the book but I am still in the beginning stages of creating my wealth feast and following the guidelines in the book. This book has ...more

This book is filled with insights into what and how we tend to work for our money instead of learning how to make money work for us. Just a few tweaks in how we manage money can make you much richer. I especially like how Ann teaches you how to develop good money habits even if you have more month at the end of your paycheck.

If there is one thing I can improve from my 20years self skill, it is to learn investing skill. If only by that time, I started already I might be on the Forbes cover magazine by now (lol exaggeration). However, learning knows no time/age limit. It is never been too late, just how it mentioned in this book. This is a great book to read and practice, if you really want money to work for you (not the other way around). The key isn’t to focus on increasing your earning, but to increase your ...more

Easy to read, simple concepts, a great starting point for those with no prior experience managing personal finances. However, the book was full of typos (even in diagrams/flowcharts).
