Barefoot Investor for Families is aimed fairly and squarely at parents, grandparents, and basically anyone who read that book and said: 'Why the hell wasn't I taught this years ago?' Scott lays out 10 money milestones kids need to have nailed before they leave home, and it's all structured around one family 'money meal' each week.

I really appreciate Scott's style and was pleased to hear him doing the narration himself. I absolutely LOVE that he's done this book, because I am a person that wants to raise my son to be financially astute, but didn't really have a clue how to go about it. This book lays out a detailed, but simple plan that cuts through all the "if I give them money for housework, they'll think they deserve to be paid for everything they do, but if I don't give them money, how will they learn to use it" that has been running through my head constantly. I'm looking forward to getting my husband on board with this plan, so we can begin to implement it with our four year old son. While Scott has aimed his work at the Australian market, I feel it is workable here in New Zealand (and I forgive you for your dig at people who travel to here!) I have already recommended it to half a dozen people, and will continue to do so.
