I Will Teach You To Be Rich Ramit Sethi Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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.

  • Golden

    By Mosscow
    This is the best book I've ever read about personal finance, and actually the best investing & home-owning advice as well (beating out books devoted to just those subjects!) Funny, frank, & on the money. Get it and change your life!
  • Great book

    By Alissa tep
    Great book! I found a lot of useful facts about personal fiancé. I had so many questions before and this book answered almost all of them. Now I know how to start investing step by step. Good job, Ramit!

    By Zoobulk
    I wish I could carry Ramit around with me in my pocket! He is such a smart guy with such easy advise to follow. His book has already set me on the track to automatic saving each month. His guidance is easy to follow and it really sticks with you! This is a definite must read!
  • Rich resource

    By Ciawy
    Highly recommended. I read this book every January to make sure I'm not missing on anything.
  • Read it!

    By Banar
    Very informative. I strongly recommend it.
  • Below average

    By heavenorhell7
    Nothing about becoming rich, but about being disciplined, automating, and using common sense in your finances to have money by the time you're near or before retirement. Save your money and just use common sense and discipline in your finances and avoid buying this book. Honestly, its value is only .99. The only one getting rich here is the author. Who wants to be rich when your old? The only people who could really get something out of this book would be grade school kids who could potentially have spendable, partying money by mid-twenties. I think I'm going to have my son read it; that way he'll be rich and partying and will have my diapers changed with his money.
  • Great graduation gift

    By Sebaj1891
    This is a great book for anyone just starting out, or anyone getting a late start. This book is probably the one thing every graduate should have as they set out to conquer the world. So practical. So easy to follow. Can't recommend it enough!
  • Entertaining and informative

    By jdor13
    Financial books in the past have bored me so much that I quit reading halfway through. "I Will Teach You to be Rich" offers a funny, sarcastic style that kept me entertained throughout the whole book. On top of that, I now have a financial plan for my future! If you are a young professional with a descent job, I recommend committing yourself to Ramit's (the author) plan. You will create an automated investing/saving strategy that will not allow you to stray off track. Just remember, even the most finely tuned financial plan is meaningless if you are carrying credit card debt!
  • Great advier for twentysomethings

    By Lucas de Britto
    Really nice book, if only the iBookstore version where better framed for the iBooks app, I would have rated it 5 stars! Still, I strongly recommend this book!
