Beginner’s Guide to Wealth

The thinking behind this book was to teach young people the principles of life. It covers all the stuff I’ve learnt from studying successful people for 40 years. It started its life as Getting it Together and I know many of you  have read that book, but the name was changed to Beginners Guide to Wealth because Getting It Together was seen by some as ambiguous.

It does have a small money section in the back, but basically, it’s about how to become a successful human being. It covers topics like going the extra mile, goal setting and learning success principles. I always laugh when people talk about the secrets of wealth – the “secrets “have been round for hundreds of years.

It’s co-written with my son James Whittaker and the newest edition has been totally revamped for current conditions.

Making Money Made Simple

This is the original book that sold 2 million copies and has changed thousands of lives. The first edition was written in 1987 but so much has changed since then. When I discovered that people need more than information, they need an action list, I rewrote the book so it’s now focused on actions to take rather than merely giving information.

The feedback to the new edition has been fantastic – one of the guys in the golf pro shop told me he saved $30,000 when he bought his house just from the tips he got by reading the chapter on the negotiation.

Compound Interest Calculator

I have several handy calculators on my website and encourage young people especially to look at this one.

Compound interest is the foundation of all financial strategies. This is because the rate of return is the factor that has the most effect on:

  1. How much interest you will pay back if you take out a loan,
  2. The size your portfolio will grow to as you continue to invest in it, and therefore how long it will last once you start to spend it.
