Publisher's Summary

This is the only money guide you'll ever need.

That's a bold claim, given there are already thousands of finance books on the shelves.

So what makes this one different?

Well, you won't be overwhelmed with a bunch of "tips" or a strict budget (that you won't follow).

You'll get a step-by-step formula: open this account, then do this; call this person, and say this; invest money here and not there. All with a glass of wine in your hand.

This book will show you how to create an entire financial plan that is so simple you can sketch it on the back of a serviette...and you'll be able to manage your money in 10 minutes a week.

You'll also get the skinny on:

  • Saving up a six-figure house deposit in 20 months
  • Doubling your income using the Trapeze Strategy
  • Saving $78,173 on your mortgage and wiping out seven years of payments
  • Finding a financial advisor who won't rip you off
  • Handing your kids (or grandkids) $140,000 checks on their 21st birthdays
  • Why you don't need $1 million to retire...with the Donald Bradman Retirement Strategy

Sound too good to be true? It's not.

This book is full of stories from everyday Aussies - single people, young families, empty nesters, retirees - who have applied the simple steps in this book and achieved amazing, life-changing results.

And you're next.

    "Honest and easy to understand"

    Thanks Scott. I have already implemented ur teachings. I tried to negotiate my mortgage rate but the bank refused to budge. I have more than 80% equity. But hey, thanks to you advice on cash back mortgage brokers, I have ditched my bank. I'm now on my way to getting $1000 or more back each year and paying less on my mortgage! Trailing commisions are awesome...especially when they are paid to me instead of the typical mortagage broker!

    "Great financial advice ... for Aussies"

    As an American, I was skeptical over how much of this book would actually apply to me. However, even though there were differences (like between a superfund and 401(k) / IRA) there were still a lot of good tidbits ... and some great ones.
    I highly recommend the book, even if you're not Australian. You just may have to do some work how it exactly applies to you.

    "Brilliant, inspiring, and very, very practical"

    Scott is a brilliant writer and an inspiring narrator. Monday this week, a friend recommended "The Barefoot Investor". Before Monday, I had no idea money can - and needs to - be managed. I was just too busy working, and there was a constant low-grade worry about what's gonna happen if I lose my job. Today is Friday, I have finished listening to the book, and I know exactly what to do, step by step, to never worry about money again. Simply amazing.
