I really think this book could be a text book for basic financial literacy. It covers everything about the basics of personal finance: insurance, investing, budgeting, financial advisors, disaster-proofing, and more. Not only have sales been very strong, I’ve been getting bulk orders from financial advisors to give to clients and prospective clients. Since there is a chapter that deals with advisor compensation and conflicts of interest, any advisor handing this out is probably not afraid of straight talk – I’m thrilled by that! (If you are interested in bulk orders, you can contact me here.)
The book is now available pretty much everywhere. While Amazon.ca has been showing the paperback as being out of stock often during the first week of sale, they keep placing orders with the publisher every few days. I have a feeling some algorithm monitors page visits and sales and will adjust future orders accordingly. Because drones. So if you prefer to use Amazon, you can go ahead and place your order even if it’s listed as out of stock and you’ll still get the book pretty quickly. Thanks to Squawkfox’s book review, every time the book has been in stock on Amazon, it’s been selling out within hours.

You can also pick it up in-store at Chapters. While the regular price is $18, I’ve yet to see it sold anywhere without at least a 28% discount. At Chapters, it’s so far been on the Top 20 for in-store sales, which qualifies for a 40% discount as long as that is the case. Whatever the price, I’m confident you’ll find good value with the book.
I hope you enjoy it if you do decide to purchase a copy.
