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 $77,641 and wipe almost seven years off your mortgage

• 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.

About the Author

SCOTT PAPE is the Barefoot Investor. A fiercely independent investment advisor who, for over a decade, has reached millions of Australians through his newspaper columns, and on TV and radio. In 2014 he and his family lost everything in a bushfire...but what they did next—that's the real story.


Very helpful especially for a migrant


Reading the book as a migrant who came to Australia in search of a better life, it's given me very rich and relevant insights into the Australian finance industry. This is crucial for anyone looking to establish themselves while at the same time navigating an unfamiliar - and sometimes confusing - financial landscape. Of course it's just as useful for everyone else. I highly recommend it!

Great entertaining book


So far I have read a third of the book and loved the way it is presented. Now I can understand why it was a best seller for so long.


Financial Dummy


Couldn't put it down, I could understand everything being written and rarely can I ever understand anything financial. I bought 3 books and gave away as a gift to children and grandchildren for Easter. Now I have to convince my husband to change his way of spending.
