Canada has the highest investment fees in the world, as well as a confusing tax system that features four-letter words like RRSP and TFSA. Fortunately there are low-cost index funds that make it easy and rewarding for you to become a do-it-yourself “couch potato” investor.
With a focus on developing good processes to minimize the room for human error and step-by-step instructions, the book will walk you through the elements of managing your finances for the long term: how to devise a savings plan, stick to it through automation, determine how to allocate funds balancing risk and reward, invest using low-cost index funds, track your investments, and deal with the inevitable issue of taxation. Putting your money to work can look suspiciously like math at times, but this book lays out a simple approach that anyone can follow. Inside you will find tools and templates, along with easy suggestions and rules-of-thumb to help prevent analysis paralysis and get you started fast.
Control what can be controlled; minimize fees and effort. Investing doesn’t have to be complex to be successful. Keep it simple and you will succeed.

Recently the climate change industry has been spruiking the 0.9 C average temperature rise over the past century. The message; be afraid and do exactly what we tell you to. Rubbish!
Most readers will have experienced a temperature change of ten times that over the past 24 hours in their own backyards. The 0.9 C rise is real but it is tiny, in relative terms, and it is beneficial not harmful. Perspective is essential here.
"Climate Change Delusion" shows that more CO2 is profoundly good for mankind and nature. It does so by using information from United Nations bodies such as the FAO, WHO and the UN MY World survey. Contrary to the forebodings of the excessively-paid doomsters, things overall are getting better and are doing so at an increasing rate. The UN’s own agencies, and others of the highest repute, show irrefutably that this is so.
Most of this improvement is thanks to more CO2 and would be impossible without it. Further improvement, especially for those now in poverty, depends on still more CO2. So when you do something that adds CO2 to the atmosphere (it may be as simple as boiling a kettle or driving your car to work) give yourself a pat on the back as a good citizen of the world.

His unkempt and unshaven appearance made him the most unlikely of footballers but his artistry and vision made him the creative on-the-field force behind a Forest side that swept all before them.
After retiring from playing, Robertson went on to strike up a wonderfully successful managerial partnership with Martin O'Neill at Leicester, Celtic and Aston Villa. Yet, amid his years of football fame, Robertson has known moments of deep personal tragedy, with the death of his daughter, who had cerebral palsy, at the age of 13 and the loss of his elder brother in a car crash.
In John Robertson: Super Tramp, the footballing legend reveals all in a humorous and touching memoir that switches engagingly between footballing glory and personal heartache.
