While I don t agree with everything he said, I do agree with some of the things he talks about I personally found the investment chapters worth reading as I didn t know very much and he lined out what my options were and explained what they were in a clear and fun way The entire thing about using a credit card for everything to get points and other benefits doesn t quite work for me, but it may for him I don t know anybody who has ever gotten rich because they received points from credit ca While I don t agree with everything he said, I do agree with some of the things he talks about I personally found the investment chapters worth reading as I didn t know very much and he lined out what my options were and explained what they were in a clear and fun way The entire thing about using a credit card for everything to get points and other benefits doesn t quite work for me, but it may for him I don t know anybody who has ever gotten rich because they received points from credit card purchases.I would read this book along with Dave Ramsey s The Total Money Makeover to compare the two With both in hand, you should get started off on the right path.A few notes while I read this book Ramit talks specifically to people who think they need never to borrow money His response Maybe you don t today, but in three or four years, you might need to start thinking about a wedding or a house What about cars Vacations Those ridiculous baby cribs that cost 7,000 And it goes on and on Please don t scoff or dismiss what you just read One of the key differences between rich people and everyone else is that rich people plan before they need to plan My response Really You need to borrow money to go on vacation To get married To buy a baby crib A car even Maybe a house, but none of the others Ramit did get one thing right, rich people DO plan before they need to plan by saving cash, by planning out the purchase of a car by saving a certain amount monthly, by saying they want to go to a cruise next year and it costing 1200, so they save 100 month to do it That baby crib you know at least 8 9 months in advance you will be needing one, and I don t know ANYBODY who spends 7,000 on a baby crib, especially those who DON T HAVE THE MONEY Wow Sorry about that I had to go on a rant Ramit argues that credit is king, but it doesn t do anything for you when you re going into debt to go on vacation and paying interest back at 7% because of your good credit as opposed to 14% Why go in the first place Ramit enlightened me to something I really didn t know how to do before I knew it was possible, but didn t know it was doable To opt out of all your pre approved credit card offers you receive in the mail, go here and put in your information Right when I read this, I did it immediately One thing I absolutely love about this book is to simply get started Just do SOMETHING rather than be paralyzed by not knowing what to do and how to do it You ll learn over time Start investing TODAY Start paying off your debt with whatever you ve got TODAY Conscious spending This is exactly what my budget has become Yes, I still know exactly what I m spending money on each month so that we can plan for the future and have those needs taken care of tuition, books, summer trips, etc Budgeting conscious spending is simply to stop spending money on something you don t care too much about and spending LOTS of money on the things you love If you love eating out, there s no reason not to spend money on that as long as you don t go into debt for it and have already saved and invested Investing chapters lead to sound advice for those who want to invest, but don t have the time to look at all of the many different mutual funds, index funds and stocks It helped me understand the difference between mutual funds, index funds, and LIFECYCLE or TARGET RETIREMENT accounts Good advice for basics I ve never wanted to give a book 2 stars so badly As a warm blooded, heterosexual male the obnoxiousness and irrelevance of Ramit s frequent fratboy asides is really grating I m sure he has some kind of gotta break some eggs to make an omelette rationale, but buyer beware You re going to read some shit that sounds like Tucker Max, minus the funny.THAT SAID I gave the book 4 stars.Why If you don t have your finances in order, Ramit gives you a clear, actionable plan on what to do, what I ve never wanted to give a book 2 stars so badly As a warm blooded, heterosexual male the obnoxiousness and irrelevance of Ramit s frequent fratboy asides is really grating I m sure he has some kind of gotta break some eggs to make an omelette rationale, but buyer beware You re going to read some shit that sounds like Tucker Max, minus the funny.THAT SAID I gave the book 4 stars.Why If you don t have your finances in order, Ramit gives you a clear, actionable plan on what to do, what order to do it in, and which vendors to use This book is supremely actionable, and the only reason you wouldn t get your finances in order after reading it is because you simply don t give a shit, not because you don t know what to do.The investment portion of this book is VERY 101 maybe 100 If you re at the point where your credit, expenses, etc., are in order and you want to thinkabout making your money work for you, I d recommend Tony Robbins Money Master the Game It contains 10 interviews with the leading minds in finance and investing, giving much better coverage of a complex subject and makes cases for various portfolio strategies.All of this said, I did organize my finances according to Ramit s advice, so I have to thank him give him credit for that It feels like a major adult accomplishment and weight off my shoulders.I wish someone would write a better written version of the same information so I can buy lots of copies and donate them to high schools This is simultaneously required reading and utter dog shit, irony be damned Don t let my star rating mislead you You should read this book The advice is very good and clear I just can t honestly say I loved it, because I found the author s examples of what it means to be rich repeated references to being fed grapes, etc, by lovely younger women to be off putting Also, the layout is terrible The flow of chapters are continually interrupted by smaller stand alone sections, which should have been better placed so you wouldn t have to choose between interrupting the Don t let my star rating mislead you You should read this book The advice is very good and clear I just can t honestly say I loved it, because I found the

interrupted by smaller stand alone sections, which should have been better placed so you wouldn t have to choose between interrupting the paragraph you ve begun or remembering to go back when you ve finished reading it.Once again, you should read this book It s very straightforward and practical, and removes much of the mystery around saving and investing I wish I had read it younger and put it into practice sooner Ramit has some good points in this book I liked his no BS approach and I found his points about automating finances worthwhile, if it didn t exactly give me new information I found the section about investing to provide helpful information about index funds, which I had wondered about He is right on the money about saving up for weddings homes too, which somehow people just expect to pull massive amounts of money together for, on a whim Excellent points, all.That said, I really dislike this Ramit has some good points in this book I liked his no BS approach and I

said, I really dislike this guy His tone sounds like a petulant spoiled kid at times He talks a lot about hot girls and going out to bars Granted, I m married, but I am in the demographic he lists for this book, and I found it hard to take serious advice from someone who literally says that he HATES people who make money mistakes And who talks a lot about hot girls The book just tries too hard to be hip, and there is surprisingly little in this book about student loans, considering it is aimed at 20 and 30 somethings.Suze Orman s book for the Young, Fabulous Broke gave me a lotinfo without all the hot lady references It s not that his advice is bad His tone is just infuriating &Read Kindle ↰ I Will Teach You to Be Rich ⇱ At last, for a generation that s materially ambitious yet financially
