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.

’ve always wondered why so many people get fat after college.I’m not talking about people with medical disorders, butregular people who were slim in college and vowed that theywould “never, ever” get fat. Five years later, they look likethe Stay Puft Marshmallow Man after a Thanksgiving feast,featuring a blue whale for dessert.Weight gain doesn’t happen overnight. If it did, it would be easyfor us to see it coming—and to take steps to avoid it. Ounce by ounce,it creeps up on us as we’re driving to work and then sitting behind acomputer for eight to ten hours a day. It happens when we move into thereal world from a college campus populated by bicyclists, runners, andvarsity athletes who once inspired us to keep t (or guilted us into it).When we did the walk of shame back at school, at least we were gettingexercise. But try talking about post-college weight loss with your friendsand see if they ever say one of these things:

The book's chapter on credit scores (and how to improve yours) is the best part of the book; however, this chapter is available free on the author's website. In general, the rest of the book contains little new or novel about personal finance.In most circumstances I would suggest buying the book for its credit score advice. Since you can get the chapter for free online (legally), I think that is the best course of action.

This book does a pretty good job covering the basics for people in their twenties and thirties. I wouldn't recommend it for someone with more than a basic knowledge of personal finance (if you contribute to your retirement account, are paying down your debt, aren't taking any more on, and are saving monthly, you're probably not going to get much out of this book), but for someone just starting out I think it would be really useful.

I'd highly recommend this personal finance book to most people but I think it's especially valuable to people in their 20s and 30s who are just becoming aware of their financial situation. I first heard about this book in a Charles Schwab magazine. Ramit Sethi was a psychology major who had heard advice like, buy one less coffee per week to save money. But he noted that people never offered advice about what to do with that extra money. Some of the ideas in the book are obvious and all sections are very well explained. Sethi does a great job of making financial advice accessbile to all. He also has a great sense of humor and quotes people like Salt 'n Pepa. In a nutshell, if you are turned off or intimidated by finance, this book would be a great place to start. I really liked it!
