Book Description

March 23 2009

At last, for a generation that's materially ambitious yet financially clueless comes I Will Teach You To Be Rich, Ramit Sethi's 6-week personal finance program for 20-to-35-year-olds. A completely practical approach delivered with a nonjudgmental style that makes readers want to do what Sethi says, it is based around the four pillars of personal finance--banking, saving, budgeting, and investing--and the wealth-building ideas of personal entrepreneurship.

Sethi covers how to save time by not wasting it managing money; the guns and cars myth of credit cards; how to negotiate like an Indian--the conversation begins with "no"; why "Budgeting Doesn't Have to Suck!"; how to get things rolling--for real--with only $20; what most people don't understand about taxes; how to get a CEO to take you out to lunch; how to avoid the Super Mario Brothers trap by making your savings work harder than you do; the difference between cheap and frugal; the hidden relationship between money and food. Not to mention his first key lesson: Getting started is more important than being the smartest person in the room. Integrated with his website, where readers can use interactive charts, follow up on the latest information, and join the community, it is a hip blueprint to building wealth and financial security.

Every month, 175,000 unique visitors come to Ramit Sethi's website, Iwillteachyoutoberich.com, to discover the path to financial freedom. They praise him thoughtfully ("Your site summarizes everything I want with my life--to be rich in finances, rich in experience, rich in family blessings," Dan Esparza) and effusively ("Dude, you rock. I love this site!" Richard Wu). The press has caught on, too: "Ramit Sethi is a rising star in the world of personal finance writing . . . one singularly attuned to the sensibilities of his generation. his style is part frat boy and part silicon Valley geek, with a little bit of San Francisco hipster thrown in" (San Francisco Chronicle). His writing is smart, his voice is full of attitude, and his ideas are uncommonly sound and refreshingly hype-free.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent starting point. Feb. 19 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

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.

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%).

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing May 24 2014
By Reader
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

Good advice in this book for the financially illiterate and for the more experienced. Everybody should read this book and early on in life to prepare financially and avoid making mistakes that they could pay for for a long time. Really like Rhamit's bluntness and honesty too
