Publisher's Summary

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

Great financial advice ... for Aussies

As an American, I was skeptical over how much of this book would actually apply to me. However, even though there were differences (like between a superfund and 401(k) / IRA) there were still a lot of good tidbits ... and some great ones.
I highly recommend the book, even if you're not Australian. You just may have to do some work how it exactly applies to you.

Honest and easy to understand

Thanks Scott. I have already implemented ur teachings. I tried to negotiate my mortgage rate but the bank refused to budge. I have more than 80% equity. But hey, thanks to you advice on cash back mortgage brokers, I have ditched my bank. I'm now on my way to getting $1000 or more back each year and paying less on my mortgage! Trailing commisions are awesome...especially when they are paid to me instead of the typical mortagage broker!

EVERY AUSTRALIAN SHOULD READ THIS!

loved this. cant wait to get the barefoor steps in place. ive ordered a hard copy to reference from but i really recommend listening to it first. being read by scott himself makes it feel more personal and fun.
if i had picked up the hard copy first i dont think i would have been as excited by the concept.

Total guide to financial happiness!

I've now listened to many books on making your own wealth, financial freeedom and the likes. Scott has put basically everything I have heard so far into one book, simplified it and then gone 10 steps further by filling in literally all the gaps. Making this the most comprehensive and enjoyable money book I've come across. I don't have the paper copy, but that is on the short list to get, I think having a physical copy to resort to would be like having a set of instructions for life in general "PRICELESS!"

Well done Scott, nailed it!
