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.

Best personal finance book I've read-and I've read a lot. Tailored to young people, but anyone can benefit from it. Ramit is my hero. Read full review
