I Will Teach You To Be Rich is a practical approach delivered with a non-judgemental style based on the four pillars of personal finance - banking, saving, budgeting and investing - and the wealth-building ideas of personal entrepreneurship.

Witty, entertaining, wise and practical, Ramit Sethi explains how to automate your money flow - i.e. earn while sleeping, why your new best friend should be the taxman and how to beat banks and credit cards at the fee game. How do you negotiate a raise? How can you manage student loans? And can you still enjoy your daily latte and buy that iPhone? Sethi's 6-week plan shows you how:

Week 1: Optimise your credit cards and learn exactly what to say to get fees waived

Week 2: Set up no-fee, high-interest bank accounts that won't cost you

Week 3: Open investment accounts even with a small amount of money

Week 4: Figure out how much you're spending. And then learn how to make your money go where you want it to go!

Week 5: Automate your new infrastructure to make your accounts play nicely together

Week 6: Why investing isn't the same as picking stocks - how to get the most out of the market with very little work.

Review: I Will Teach You To Be Rich

User Review  - Heather Mumaw - Goodreads

Nothing earth-shattering, but good, basic overview of finances. I really appreciated the straight-talk nature of the book as opposed to most finance books that are written like a scolding parent. The wedding and house buying chapters were a huge wake-up call. Read full review
