DISCLAIMER: I have been friends with Ramit for several years now and AllFinancialMatters is mentioned in Ramit’s book.
Okay, let’s say you want to be rich but your financial life stinks. You want to make changes but don’t know where to start. There are thousands of personal finance books out there but you don’t know which one pick. Well, a great place to start in my opinion would be with Ramit Sethi’s new book, I Will Teach You To Be Rich*, which offers an easy-to-follow 6-week program for getting one’s finances in order.
The program is broken down into the following six weeks:
Week 1 Credit cards and credit reports
Week 2 Banking
Week 3 Opening a 401(k) or retirement plan
Week 4 Budgeting or spending plan
Week 5 Automation
Week 6 Investing
One thing I have always appreciated about Ramit’s blog was his no-nonsense writing style. Thankfully, he brought that same style to his book. I found the book to be insightful and very easy to read. Yes, I already knew most of the information presented in the book but this book was not written for me. Rather, it was written for those who may not normally read personal finance books.
Whenever I review a book, I always try to find something I don’t like about the book. I really couldn’t find anything I didn’t like about this book. It’s a book for beginners and it does an excellent job of filling that niche.
Anyway, I highly recommend this book for anyone who needs to get their financial life in shape or anyone who is starting out on the road of life. Ramit will help you get on the road to becoming rich.
