Lacey Filipich, a chemical engineer turned money guru and author, has penned Money School as a self-help guide to achieving financial independence.
An early tip in the book - what you keep matters more than what you make - is central to Filipich's message that those on an average income can still become financially independent and time rich.
The book meanders through ways to save and how to buy assets, with case studies and practical examples. It then progresses "down the river" to explain the different paths you can take to create a financially independent or retirement fund.
