By: Ramit Sethi | | Rockstar Review | Categories: Earning More, Investing, Money Management
A 6-week personal finance program for 20-to-35-year-olds based on the four pillars of personal finance: banking, saving, budgeting, and investing - along with the wealth building ideas of personal entrepreneurship. A highly entertaining book that will keep the attention of the younger generation.

What Bloggers Are Saying...

"It's just FUN and helpful at the same time. Literally the only book on money I've read where I've actually laughed out loud ;) Great book for the younger gen, and super practical. (I know the title sounds spammy, but I swear it's not)"
"I just like Ramit's style! :)"
"This book is great because it's a no-nonsense how-to. I had already gotten most of this information from Reddit personal finance and financial independence, but having it all in one place helped me figure out what had fallen through the cracks and needed to be addressed. He's a little obnoxious, but I like how Ramit really holds you accountable and doesn't put up with any BS or excuses."
"It covers everything that school doesn't teach us! From budgeting, saving, investing, and automating it is covered. Plus it's funny to read and gives you easy steps to take action."
"Because it's really practical, hands-on and step-by-step. Also, because it's quite focused on young people, which I find is really important because so many are lacking basic financial education nowadays."
"I have to admit by the time I came around to reading the book I thought I knew just about everything about personal finance but there are some incredibly useful nuggets. Plus the author is incredibly funny which made for a really enjoyable read."
"This was the first book I read about the logistics of managing and investing. It was so clear and simple, that it gave me the confidence to begin."
"Probably one of the best personal finance books ever written. For anybody who finds personal finance boring, this is the book that makes it fun and exciting to learn about how to smartly approach personal finance and avoid making dumb mistakes."
"I like the general overview of all aspects of personal finance from budgeting to investing."
"I love Ramit - he has taught me a ton about building an online business and personal finance specifically. I'm currently listening to this book on Audible."
"His approach on life mirrors my own and his automation systems are on point, definitely saves you from busy work so you can focus on the important things."
"Ramit included it all and focused on creating a rich life vs being miserly."
"I love how Ramit guides you through creating an automatic system that allows your money by default move towards your goals."
"Ramit Sethi's no nonsense way of what people need to do with money is the kick in the pants that anyone needs if they haven't got their financial life together."
"It's the best overall personal finance book I've found. Ramit has a great way of engaging with the reader while dropping awesome bits of financial advice throughout. It's the best starter book for a solid overview of financial advice."
"The best part about Sethi’s book is that it is actionable and not overwhelming. He makes it easy to take things one step at a time and encourages the reader not to focus on making everything perfect. Financial literacy and wealth building is a lifelong process, and anyone who makes it seem like you need to be an expert is likely to make people think, “I’ll just deal with this later.”"
"A step by step guide to getting your finances in order! Ramit Sethi lays out exactly what to say to your banks and credit card companies to get what you want. I've used his templates many times with my bank and it works! His practical 6-week personal finance program is centered around budgeting, saving, investing, and wealth building."
"I enjoyed his no nonsense approach to showing you how to get out of debt, savings, credit cards and investing. It's a great read for someone fresh out of college. He offers a 6-week plan for improving your finances."
"It's just FUN and helpful at the same time. Literally the only book on money I've read where I've actually laughed out loud ;) Great book for the younger gen, and super practical. (I know the title sounds spammy, but I swear it's not)"
"This was the first finance book I ever read as a 12 year old kid and it made a lasting impression. To this day I still pay myself first because of this book. Great advice and easy to read."
"Everyone seems to mention this book, and while I understand some of the concepts are good, the book has never really resonated for me. That and some of Kiyosaki's business dealings/conferences/etc have soured me on him."
"I think the tips are practical when it comes to holding on to your money and this book points out the challenges women face with money as well as giving those practical tips. It left a lasting impression on me."
"I jumped on the bandwagon and read this book right after I graduated college. The book has interesting stories, but I think as a whole, it comes across as exaggerated and corny. The author is also pretty pleased with himself and all his money. I'll save you $15, the gist of the book is that assets are better than liabilities."
"I wish this book would have been out when I was in college, but I'm still glad I got to read it by my mid-20s. I liked that his approach was real and he doesn't beat down his readers for wanting to buy a latte or live in a nice home like a lot of other PF experts out there. Personal finance is personal, find a way to make your money work for you."

Why bloggers think this book is overrated...

"This book is for very early beginners who are happy with a 15% savings rate, not for people who are on an aggressive path to early retirement."
"I think he had some great tips in his book and I still follow many of them to this day. But, I could not get through the book because he comes off like an asshole. So I had to stop."
"Content doesn't live up to the hype. Some aspects could be misleading to readers."
"I tried reading this book, but it didn't really say anything. Maybe I was to far beyond the little useful advice it provided by the time I read it. However, every time I see this on someone's read list and scratch my head as to why."
"This one i wasn't a fan of since it talked a lot about leveraging credit cards, which won't work for me for one, and another is most people won't have the discipline to pay them off monthly and fall into the trap. So for that reason, i think it's a stinker."
