Product Description

Review

'Don't let the breezy irreverent style of this book fool you. It contains serious advice on personal-finance decisions from budgeting and savings to spending and investing.' -- Burton G Malkiel, author of A Random Walk Down Wall Street Ramit Sethi is a rising star in the world of personal finance writing ... one singularly attuned to the sensibility of his generation ... His style is part frat boy and part Silicone Valley geek, with a little bit of San Francisco hipster thrown in. -- San Francisco Chronicle --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

You don't have to be perfect to be rich. Or the smartest person in the room. Or a type-A personality. In fact, with Ramit Sethi's six-week program to financial independence, you can start with any amount of money, do just 85 percent of what he suggests, and succeed brilliantly through good times and bad.

As irreverent and entertaining as he is practical and wise, Sethi explains how to beat banks and credit cards at the fee game, automate your cash flow, negotiate for a raise, manage student loans, and enjoy your lattes and Manolo Blahniks by practicing conscious spending. It's how to master your money with the least amount of effort—and then get on with your life.

Format: Paperback
Such a great book! I have been reading Ramit's blog for the past few months... His first book is just as good, if not better, than his personal blog [...]. It truly is a great guide to get back on track with your money and do the right things before it's too late.

This book is intentend for people in their 20's or 30's, but anyone could make partial or complete use of his tricks. The subjects he covers are, for example, how to make a better use of your credit cards, how to get a grip of where your money goes and how to start investing slowly yet surely. Details and tips are given in abundance to make sure you know where to start.

I know that a name like "I will teach you to be rich" may sound like a scam, or something exagerated, but it's not the case. This guy is truly on the right track to being rich, and I'm right there behind following his tips to become wealthy as well.

Finally, the thing I love the most about his book is that it's straightforward: No waste of time, just a step by step guide with plenty of great advices that you need to take advantage of.

The book covers a wide variety of subject that we always have questions about, and delivers the answers flawlessly.

If you want to save a LOT of money in the future, and also become rich, this book is for you, trust me.

One last thing! Ramit is specific and gives a lot of details on how to apply the tricks in your life. He's not just being generic... He clearly explains how to get back on track, step by step. You need to take ACTION and realize the importance of applying this book's content in real life.

You'll do much better! Buy this book, it could be the best book you've ever bought this year!

I was very skeptical initially. I found Ramit's style very challenging and almost arrogant. Definitely not PC. This has become quite entertaining for me now.
His specific focus each week is an awesome blueprint for success.
I am recommending this to all my friends.

It change my consciousness about my expenses and this even affected my fiancee' and she followed suit when seeing my success.

I dare to say in less than a month's time I personally have developed and implemented strategies to save over $2000.00 this year, and I already thought was living as lean as possible.
This will mean many thousands over the course of my life.

I will be taking his 6-week boot camp and joining his Scrooge Strategy Website as well.
He's saved me many times the investment already.

This book is a decent starting place for personal finance, with good tips on negotiation, maintenance, management and automation. The focus is on getting the big wins and developing a system to allow you to take care of your finances, rather than trying to pinch every penny you get.

That said, I wouldn't call it a book on gettin rich at all. Sure, the tips on investing in the stock market without getting gouged and such is an OK starting point, and will do fine for anyone who isn't looking to do anything beyond retire some day... But if your goal is to really get rich, you'll have to turn to different titles or products.

Being a foreigner it was really nice to get this book. It gives detailed explanations of personal financial instruments that are available in the US (works for Canada as well, just the names can be a bit different, same idea) I had no idea about. I've already followed a couple of advices from this book, looks like they are going to save me some real $$ (i.e. getting 3% cash back card instead of just 1%).

Automating my finances in the way Ramit describes in his book has been very helpful in reducing how much time it takes for me to monitor my finances. I never have to worry about going into the negative or missing a payment or late fees with this, and I used one of the credit card call scripts to get $30 credited back to me... which more than pays for the book, and that was just in the first few chapters!

As a 20 year old, I found this to be a very interesting and informative read. I liked it so much that I bought it for two friends, who also liked it. It reads more like a novel than a textbook, so the information is digestible. Note that it is written for Americans (it talks about 401k accounts, etc.), but it is easy to Google the Canadian equivalents. It also focuses on how to get out of debt.

The book offers very practical financial advice with links and resources on how to take action to plan for your financial future. Although the book is targeted for 20 somethings, I am nearly 40, and since I invest like a child, the book is actually useful for anyone who hasn't matured in their financial management. What I found particularly helpful was the down-to-earth approach to what other authors have made very complicated. For example, Ramit explains how asset allocation (usually a boring topic) is a simple way to protect and build your portfolio, rather than something that is so complex you need a financial planner to do it. Other items like forced savings, budgeting, etc, make this book totally practical.
