The Barefoot Investor by Scott Pape is an awesome book that teaches you the basic fundamentals of investing your money. I first picked up this great book many years ago and just recently Scott Pape is released an updated version of the book.
Below are some great quotes from the book. Enjoy.
“Baumeister says that people who succeed don’t have more willpower than you: they just develop better daily routines and habits, which after a while become automatic and require less thought — less conscious energy.”
― Scott Pape
“I get a lot of letters from old people,” I told her (only half-jokingly).
It’s fairly common sense finance stuff; avoid debt, come up with a savings plan, budget, diversify. No idea how good his investments are because he never gets into that sort of detail..
I also felt really disappointed to see someone whose views I’d previously respected spruiking like that awful bloke who says on TV “But wait, there’s more”, and goes on to offer the steak knives.
