Some of you may already have picked this up on social media, but I’m pleased to announce that Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom, the book I’ve co-written with Ben Carlson, is now on sale in the UK. The Kindle version is available in other countries.
The book is published by Harriman House. It was primarily written for a UK audience and is aimed at people in their 20s and 30s.
It has no hidden sales agenda and, as you’d expect, is based on peer-reviewed academic evidence. It explains, in simple terms, how young investors can develop good habits, save a fortune in unnecessary fees and charges, and achieve financial freedom many years earlier than they otherwise would.
WHAT BEN SAYS
Here’s what my co-author Ben Carlson says about the book:
“When it comes to planning for retirement the majority of people are on their own. There’s no one to coach you or hold your hand to make sure you understand what you need to do, when you need to do it, or how to make wise decisions with your life savings.
“We wrote this book is to help remove some of the stress, confusion, and anguish involved in the process of saving and investing for retirement. Money is a tool that can either cause or solve a lot of problems in your life. This book guides you through the big decisions necessary to get you on the right track towards financial independence so you can move on with your life to focus on more important things and let your money do the work for you.”

SOME THANK YOUs
I’d like to thank the team at Harriman House for their hard work and professionalism, and, most of all, my co-author Ben Carlson. Ben is one of the brightest and most articulate financial writers around, and it’s been an honour to work with him. Thank you as well to my wife Jan and children Daisy and Oliver, who not only helped with proofreading, but also put up with me working long hours to get the book finished.
“This is an important book. So much of what ordinary investors hear is wrapped in jargon. Clarity and common sense is what Robin and Ben bring to readers.”
Mark St Giles, Chairman, Cadogan Financial
“At last! A one-stop guide for UK savers that shows just how simple sensible investing can be — but is no simpler than it should be.”
“I highly recommend this book. If I’d read it in my early 20s. It would have saved me from some big mistakes. Have a read — your future self will thank you!”
Alice Guy, My Money Harvest
“Financial freedom for most people is not about hitting the jackpot with stocks or crypto. It’s about a sensible long-term approach to investing which will eventually lead to personal financial freedom. Success is virtually guaranteed if you follow the suggestions in this book.”
The Obvious Investor
“Carlson and Powell have shown an extraordinary ability to summarise the key concepts of personal finance in a clear and simple way.
“With numerical examples within everyone’s reach, this book answers questions on why, how, when, how much you should save and invest — and which tools to use. It is both enjoyable and educational.”
“I strongly believe that if anyone does read your book and following the actions, they will have a financially healthy and wealthy life in the future. The key is that they take the actions!”
Will Rainey, financial educator
“Invest Your Way To Financial Freedom brings together the essential information that someone needs to start saving and investing for their future in a clear, concise, easy-to-read book.”
Dr Fire, blogger
“In 22 short chapters this book lays out a plan that anyone can follow. Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom earns our high recommendation.”
Angus McLeod, The Money Question
“This book provides an excellent grounding that enables someone new to investing to make a solid start on their investing journey”
Noel Watson, financial planner
“The lack of financial education at school, combined with the British taboo on discussing monetary matters, can lead to an information vacuum. That space is ripe to be filled with the empty, baseless advice of shills, charlatans and ‘finfluencers’. Everyone beginning to explore their financial self could benefit from filling said void with the truths found in this simple guide instead.”
“Ben Carlson and Robin Powell’s new book, Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom offers a clear path to building wealth that everyone should have learned in school (but didn’t). I highly recommend this clearly written guide.”
Andrew Hallam, best-selling author
“Invest Your Way to Financial Freedom is an essential read for anyone starting out their investment journey; informative, well-written and easy to understand.”
Life After the Daily Grind
“This is one of the books I wished had been given to me when I was starting my first full-time job. I would have avoided a whole lot of expensive financial mistakes I made early on in my career.”
Naresh Jayakumar, NJURLIFE
“This is the sort of well-written book I wished someone had given to me as a teenager to avoid some of those expensive and painful ‘learning by doing’ financial mistakes that many of us make early on.”
