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 7 years of payments
  • Finding a financial advisor who won't rip you off
  • Handing your kids (or grandkids) a $140,000 cheque on their 21st birthday
  • 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.

The Booktopia book reader that you have to install as an app for the online version is hopeless. Lots of missing pages, hard to follow, i really got lost where i was in the book. I contacted Booktopia who said there was blank pages in the original version (i guess to write notes), but i would scroll through 20 blank pages and then come to a page that didn't seem to match up. It didnt help that book pages seemed to sometimes be in the middle of the page on my ipad. Anyway, buy the hard cover version and steer clear of Booktopia and its usless app.

      Bought this as an E-book and now intend on buying the paperback version. This is extremely well written. Scott is witty and matter of fact, and sets out in easy to follow instructions of what to do, how to do it, and in some scenarios what to say to get what you want and need. Once I got started on this book I couldn't put it down and look forward to implementing his tips and managing my money better.

        I'm not all the way through the book yet but it is very well set out. All information is clear and it is very easy to read. If you follow the advice exactly as suggested you can't possibly go wrong.
