This book was new in the early 1990's. I found it to be an eye-opener at the time. For some who was brought up believing that wealth was "bad" or a symptom of greed, it provided a no-nonsense approach to saving and wealth accumulation for an Australian at that time. It served me well. Today, there are many more "sophisticated" books out there covering topics like personal/household budgeting, saving and investing. People should make their own judgement on such things but the basics remain valid at any time. In summation, a good example of sound financial advice for Australian in the 1990's.
