“Two militants in the martial arts of money publish their manifesto for extracting better value from energy companies, financial service providers and every other firm that seeks to charge more for less.

“It was a pleasant surprise to be sent a new book, Money Fight Club, which promised to reveal the secrets of saving money ‘one punch at a time’. This isn’t about special offers, promotions or voucher codes. It’s about knowing how to complain properly – which can be just as lucrative. Having spent the last year resolving to complain more about poor service, I have to side with the authors – financial black belts Lindsay Cook and Anne Caborn – the fight really does pay off.”
