I am interested in learning more about personal finance. I'm in my early 20's, and I recognise that now is a crucial time to form a solid financial footprint for myself. I live in the UK, but worry that most advice is targeted toward those who live in the US.
Are there major differences in how the financial industries work between the two countries? Is advice targeted at those in the US substantially different to comparable advice for those who live in the UK?
Would reading books like A Random Walk Down Wall Street be beneficial? Are there any books which could be recommended regardless of residency? And I guess, the real question for me: are there any books that could be recommended because I live in the UK?
