Australia's number 1 bestselling book is being updated for 2018 - pre-order your copy now!

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.

    Money management has always been a serious subject...either you know about it or you don't. This book is the best I've ever read on managing money, largely because of the fun way in which Scott teaches. I am only up to the third date night and am already enjoying the changes thus far.
    My husband and I are in fits of laughter at some of the verbiage used in this book ...Scott is so funny and we are enjoying the fact that we are finally discussing money issues without arguing. I have recommended this book to my friends and will purchase copies for each of my 4 children and the three oldest grandchildren for Christmas. Absolutely love it!

  • Easy to read and practical to apply

    There's a reason this is a hit. As Barefoot himself says, it's not complex, it just requires planning.
