'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
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.

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. :)
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.
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!
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.
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.Read more ›
