    How would you like to increase the amount of money you have to spare without doing any extra work?

    So much of what we hear about personal finance is confusing, time-consuming or a lot of hassle. Here, the authors promise that with some very small, simple changes to how you manage your money, you can vastly improve your financial outlook.

    Each chapter covers a single common personal finance topic, and explains how you can make better choices in this area, the amount you can expect to save over a year, the time it will take to follow the tip, and a star rating for the complexity or 'hassle factor' (one star being the easiest and fastest, five stars requiring the most commitment).

    Personal finance experts Charlie Weston and Karl Deeter see every day how too many of us pay over the odds, get ripped off or simply don't maximise the money we have. Here they share all the money-saving tips and tricks they have garnered over the years.

    It may seem hard to believe, but each chapter has a value, and if you were to use them all to their fullest extent, this book can save you up to EURO25,000

  • Dublin: The Chaos Years

    Neil Cotter

    Product Code: DTCY
    Paperback
    Hand-picked favourites
    Dublin has become the dominant force in Gaelic football, setting new standards of skill and efficiency. But it was not very long ago that the county was a byword for underachievement and disorganization. Every year from 1996 to 2010, the Dubs found new and creative ways of losing, of causing their fans to suffer, and of earning the scorn of the wider GAA public. Based on interviews with former players and coaches, Dublin: The Chaos Years tells the entertaining and sometimes scarcely believable story of how the Dubs managed to make such a hames of things over a period of fifteen years. It also traces the beginnings of the turnaround, as the bad habit of failure began to give way to a healthier culture. Full of frank, witty and sometimes outrageous stories and analysis from the people who were at the centre of it, Dublin: The Chaos Years is a book for every Gaelic football fan.
