Thanks for the overwhelming support you have given to the launch of my new book.  Orders have been pouring in, but as usually happens when anything new is tried, some anomalies have developed.  The first relates to the $13 postage charge, which I tried to soften by including a choice of additional products as a Christmas gift.  As one reader pointed out, that is of no use to anyone who already has those products,

Then there was the apparent compulsion to use PayPal.  The website is supposed to let you choose the option of using a credit card when you get to the PayPal site, but this seems to have been inactive.

Having had a long think about the above, and remembering that my main aim is to get as much information into the public domain as possible, I’ve decided to reduce the postage to a flat $9.95, and take away the option of a gift. However, I don’t want to disadvantage anybody who is still thinking about placing an order, so the present system will be current until midnight this Friday, December 4.

Therefore, if you want to order under the present system, pay $13 postage and get your free Christmas gift, place your order before midnight on Friday.

However, if all you want is the book, or even two or three books, wait until Saturday and your total postage will be $9.95 irrespective of how many books you order.  Also by then, the shopping cart should be able to take credit cards as well as PayPal.

If there are any glitches at all, please don’t hesitate to email me direct.

Of course, if you live in Brisbane and don’t want to pay postage the books are available now at American Bookstore in Toowong, and Riverbend Books in Bulimba. They will not be available at any other bookstores until February.

There have also been questions about bulk orders, because many organisations are buying the book as a Christmas gift for their clients.  We can certainly give discounts for bulk orders.  Just email me at noel@noelwhittaker.com.au and we can have a chat.  Books come 14 to a carton, so multiples of 14 books would be extremely easy to handle.

I’d like to remind you of the effect that books can have on a person’s life. Every time I make a speech, at least one person comes up to me and tells me how my books and articles have improved their financial education.  A particular favourite is The Beginners Guide to Wealth, which started its life as Getting It Together, and then had a name change because we felt the original name did not fully explain what the book was supposed to do.  This was a book that was designed to teach young people about success, and the feedback has been amazing.
