'The Barefoot Investor' (2004), is Scott's first book which boasted enormous success and has since been printed in the UK, Holland and India and in 2007 a revised and updated version was released in Australia. The Barefoot investor was praised by many including Sir Richard Branson stating ’The Barefoot Investor makes finance fun’. In 2018, Scott released the follow-up book 'The Barefoot Investor for Families', aimed at parents, grandparents and ayone else who hasn't read the book.
Scott has made his way to be a household name and celebrity, ultimately due to his unique ability to relate to and connect to the young Australian’s of today. He is an engaging, informative and motivational speaker and in Scott Pape’s own words he “keeps it real”.
