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

    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.
