The Barefoot Investor has been updated to cover some of the 2017 changes to the tax law.

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 7 years of payments
  • 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.
