The Barefoot Investor by Scott Pape is Booktopia’s highest selling book ever – 80,000 copies and counting!
Back in 2016 when Wiley was selling in a new book called The Barefoot Investor they were telling me that the book would be big but I don’t think that any of us had any idea of just how successful this book would become. As we celebrate selling over 80,000 copies, I thought I would share some statistics on what has become an Australian publishing phenomenon!
- More than 660,000 units sold in the Australian Market (Source – Bookscan)
- Highest selling book in Australia for 2017!
- In 2017 The Barefoot Investor held the No 1 spot in the Bookscan charts for more than 20 weeks!
- So far in 2018 The Barefoot Investor continues to dominate – rarely being out of the No 1 spot in the Bookscan charts!
- Highest selling Australian personal finance title ever!
- Outsold popular favourites like Working Class Man and 91 Storey Treehouse in 2017!
- Booktopia alone has sold over 80,000 copies and The Barefoot Investor has not left our Top 10 since it’s publication in late 2016!

The Barefoot Investor
The Only Money Guide You'll Ever Need
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.
About the Contributor
Tracey's love of books started at a young age and has just increased over time and working in the industry. My absolute favourite thing to do is curl up with a cat, a cup of tea and most importantly a good book! I have too many favourite books to pick just one but love reading science fiction, fantasy, young adult, popular science and anything about animals/nature.
