You are very welcome to my website and thank you for logging in. This site is here primarily to introduce you to my book ‘The Justified Tight Bastard's Guide To Life’. In a nutshell my book contains  over 300 practical tips to help you save money as well as a few suggestions for supplementing your income with a few simple money making ideas which anyone regardless of circumstances or qualifications can put into practice. I guarantee anyone who reads the book will very quickly and easily be able to identify numerous ways to curb their expenditure to the tune of several thousand per annum. But 'The Justified Tight Bastard's Guide' is much more than this, it also delves into some of the psychology of why we spend (or waste) money on some of the things we do because understanding your motivations is key to changing your behaviour.


My book also at times becomes food for thought on what direction we in the western consumer driven world are headed in and whether or not we want to go there. I am not concerned with being politically correct or populist in these pages. I try to call a spade a spade and call it as I see it. I didn’t write the book to tell people what they want to hear but rather what some of you floundering in financial confusion need to here. Therefore I have no doubt ruffled the feathers of quite a few of the powers that be by telling you a few home truths they would prefer you didn’t know. I believe ‘The Justified Tight Bastard's Guide To Life’ is too honest and controversial for main stream publishers hence my decision to self publish, using Matadors professional services. I hope you will enjoy and benefit from my book.
