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.

    Loved it


    Now I can see what all the fuss is about!! This book is terrific and opened my eyes up to lots of great ideas with improving my financial position.



    Great little book.


    I read it through and the use it as reference. Giving it as a gift to all my young adult kids



    Worth every cent !!


    Awesome read !



    Everyone should read.


    So informative. Would help many people of all ages.



    Exactly what I needed


    Could not put this book down. Very well written, easy to follow and most importantly useful, practical advices.



    Magnificent, amazing, life changing. Read it. Just do it...

    Not for everyone


    I am a 20 year old and found this book very irrelevant to my age group. 90% of it is aimed at married couples. i gave up reading half way through as i wasn't learning anything that i could apply to my current living situation. it talks a lot about how to get out of debt, how to pay off your mortgage etc. i was hoping to learn how to save lots of money working on a minimum wage but it really didn't help.



    I am going to buy another copy (for my daughter) very soon!


    It's so informative and user-friendly and this book will never leave my coffee table! It will not gather dust on a shelf.



    Life changing within 2 chapters!


    I saved $1280 while reading chapter 2! This book has changed my life very quickly. This time next year I will have no debt. So simple and easy to follow practical step by step instructions that ANYONE can understand. Really easy entertaining and exciting read not dry and boring like most financial advice.

    Gold coast


    Highly recommend this book


    This book is practical, informative and interesting. It has revolutionised our finances. I also found myself laughing out loud in many sections. Scott has an engaging and witty style of writing.
