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.

Kind of old and outdated. He uses interest rate examples that are literally 10x higher than they are today. A lot of this is not applicable to Canadians either. For an example he talks about 401Ks getting 8% interest. The highest rrsp you can find in Canada is nowhere near that.

Accessible language, humor, and a great structure for financial newbies. I was a 21 y/o university student with a little credit card and a checking account, nothing else. I now have investments, high-interest savings accounts, an automatic system that makes saving and budgeting easy, a credit card I get awesome rewards on and never pay interest on, and a 5 year plan to save for a house and travel. This book is so valuable if you're stuck at the entry-way of personal finances with no one to help you! If you already know about IRAs, 401(k)s, debt interest vs capital gain interest, this book will probably not help you too much.

As an aside, I am Canadian, and with a little googling I was able to find parallels for everything Ramit suggested. IRAs = TFSA, 401(k) = RRSP. Kind of. They all have their own rules, so do your own research. Takes about 10 min to translate everything you've learned into Canadian finances. Thank you Ramit. :)

I am a fan of Ramit's blogs. However some of the money saving tips dont apply to Canadians/Ontarians ie negotiating car insurance. We also have different chequing accounts here and no bricks and mortar chequing account that pays interest with no fees - even with negotiation, closest you can come is online banks.

This is a good starter book for people looking to begin handling their finances in a more productive way and a decent price, you will get tips that will give you a return on investment.

For me, a long time follower of Ramit's blog it did not prove to be worthwhile. I think it would be most useful to people in the U.S. and people who are just beginning their research into personal finance.

Its a great book, especially if you dont like to read for fun, but do out of necessity to learn. As a Canadian, somethings dont apply directly (names for things are different), but the concept taught in the book are global.

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!

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.

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!

I kept putting off buying this book because, as so many people do, money, planning and investing is "I have time, I'll figure it out later". One night at 2am I was watching Ramit's videos on negotiation due to an impending job discussion I would be having as I start my career after transitioning from Grad School. I bit the bullet and bought the book, which incidentally is extremely cheap.

His advice is extremely well written, it is funny and enjoyable to read. He tackles the root causes of peoples inaction and attitudes towards money. In this book, his key principals are to automate your money flow so your saving, investing, retirement all happens on its own and you don't see it. He also teaches to spend extravogantly on the things you love, and cut mercilessly on things you don't. When he says "teach you to be RICH" he doesn't just mean in the monetary sense, he means lead a rich life as well. Sure you can make a tiny bit more money by being painfully frugal, but you won't be happy.

If you are in your twenties or early thirties this is an essential book. It's delightful to read, contrary to what you'd think a finance book would be, and contains extremely useful, practical, and easy to implement advice. He also discusses how to approach big money decisions and save tons of money on cars, homes, and weddings. There is even advice on dealing with family and having the money talk with a significant other.

It's a six week "course" but really it just breaks down the tasks into manageable bites. You could implement all of his advice within a few weeks without issue if you are in a good position already.
