Purchased on Mighty Ape

The authors explanation in a very basic & understanding way of being able to accept responsibility and accountability for your actions in relation to any financial situation is most enlightening. Excellent reading, every household should have a copy as it is easy reading for anyone in their teens & onwards.

I’m fairly new to investing, having only just left university. We only had the book for 2 months and it has already helped us travel, invest in shares, and buy a few new pieces of furniture. I had shown this to my father and he eventually bought himself a copy. It’s a suitable book for new or experienced investors.


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.
