From the Back Cover
The Barefoot Investor, Scott Pape, shows how getting your financial act together can be downright sexy, allowing you to achieve things that mean the most to you - regarldess of your income.
Scott shows you how to manage your money to do the things you want: whether it's to quit the job you hate to make a career of what you love; buy a cool apartment; go backpacking around the world; or build a wealth portfolio for the future.
By following the Barefoot Plan you can make your money work for you. The five Barefoot steps show you how to save it, invest it and let it do the hard work for you so you can tread your own path.
At 26, Scott is a successful stockbroker and media commentator. He runs his own weekly finance radio show, chooses to drive a wreck and lives a full and rich life. His radio program has been described as finance for people who don't do finance. He makes money funky; your money can look after you once you learn how to look after it.
"The Barefoot Investor is a step-by-step plan that requires very little willpower, zero interest in money and less than one hour a year to maintain. Isn't it about time you started living the life you want ?" Scott Pape.

Here is the book in a nutshell: Save your money as much as you can and then give it to a finance manager, hedge fund, mutual fund or this type of investment. If you are English, you will be able to find a list of all of these funds in which you can investigate. If you are not, well just look on Google and see the thousands of companies and funds, or ask your bank manager what to do with your 100k in the bank and you will feel even more confused than when you read the book!! If you are 15 years old, or have never read a finance book, or have no finacial control or idea this book is for you. It does explain the power of interest which is very important. But if you are looking for solid financial advice and direction and if you have money to invest and want to know how to learn to invest for yourself, then this book is a waste of time, except for a few cheap laughs.
I give it four stars because it's a decent book and the author writes in a very comfortable style, even though much of the material is pretty basic.
