John Lowe is probably best known for his popular books on personal finance ‘The Money Doctor’, ’50 Ways to Wealth’, ‘The Money Doctor Finance Annuals’ all published by Gill & Macmillan – two of the eight editions went to the number one bestseller position in Ireland (paperback non-fiction section). The 2013 Annual was published after the December 2012 Budget and is endorsed by Joe Duffy, Brendan O’Carroll, Jim Power and Gay Byrne.
His approach as The Money Doctor is simple, objective and effective. What he most enjoys about his role as a personal finance writer and authorised adviser is that he is free to tell rather than sell the public what he really thinks and tell it in an easy to understand style – “in plain English” as they say – TELL NOT SELL. John is a frequent interviewee and commentator on our national airwaves ( Newstalk weekly Lunchtime Tuesday slot, plus contributions on RTE, East Coast radio, Today FM, 4FM, 98FM, Q102fm, Sunshine Radio, a variety of rural stations – Tipp FM, Clare FM, Midlands 103, Highland Radio, Waterford LRFM, Limerick Live 95, LMFM – et al) and amongst our print media and television. He also writes currently for Sunday Business Post while he also had a weekly column “Making Money with The Money Doctor” in the LIFE magazine supplement of the Sunday Independent – he wrote 70 consecutive articles and 50 of them were complied and published in April 2008 for his 5th book entitled “50 Ways to Wealth”
