If Ramit gave concrete tips about how to get rich for example REAL tips about how SPECIFICALLY he accumulated wealth & raises the numbers in his bank account monthly, business ideas that can make money ( kind of a sharktank kind of advice) instead of talking so much of organizing finances, save, pay this, be careful with your credit card, say no no to debt etc...
The book is basically:
SAVE MONEY all you can ORGANIZE the way you pay monthly for stuff If you want get married start saving money from the moment you get inside your mom's wombLast but not least about his personal experience thanks to the way he was raised.Fun, funny etc... But HOW will I be rich Ramit!How?LOL
The one that I just got: "The Willpower Instinct" Written by: Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D.This is my next read because, I FEEK & KNOW Ramit is right, & to be able to organize One must learn more about self behavior.
Ramit is EXCELLENT narrating his own master creation.The best parts are the sarcasms.
The "How to save for your wedding" it too long & NOT that relevant.If you have the money to get married big time FINE, if NOT YISUS NO reason to suffer for it, setting your financial life around a wedding party?? I mean common.
Read his webpage,Look for his youtube channel.Subscribe to his newsletters ( deliciously awesome to read & MUST OF THE TIMES VERY Funny!)Follow Ramit on Twitter.And take a look at his EYEBROWS they're JUST PERFECT.Bye!!
This book is mainly geared for 20 - 35 age range. Ramit has an exuberant personality and got me excited about doing finances the right way. The book is filled with excellent real world examples and methods for controlling finances. I was skeptical about using a credit on this book at first because of the corny title. I'm really glad I did. I'm actively using at least 75% of techniques described in this book.
When you are ready to seriously start thinking about finances.. listen to this book first.
i purchased the paper book 6 months ago and it completely changed my financial life, i also purchased this audio book about a week ago and it was great listening to Ramit read his own book i also listen to chapters frequently when i need inspiration or a refresh. his blog by the same name is also a daily read now too
Great work Ramit
Not everyone will like Ramit's light hearted writing style but none the less this is a book with a powerful message for younger people to get them started on personal finance. I have given copied to employees in their 20's and they LOVE it.

I haven't been able to stop talking about this book for the last 3 weeks. My friends and wife must hate me. But seriously, I know I'm going to look back at listening to this book and know that it changed my life for the better. I can't recommend this book or Ramit enough to anyone in their twenties who wants to learn how to invest and grow wealth without being bogged down with financial jargon that makes you want to scoop out your ear drums with a melon baller. Just listen it.
This was so helpful, informative, and approachable! I feel confident setting up my own investment accounts now without bucking up for a financial advisor. This was extremely helpful.
Ramit's delivery of the usually dry topic of personal money management is refreshing, intuitive and encouraging. His jokes are horrifically bad but his sound advice will help you look past it. I've already recommended this book to three others whom have taken to it as quickly as I have.
Yes, the book makes sense of a very intimidating topic.
I was afraid of listening to a multi-hour narration by a non-U.S. author (apologies in advance). Ramit makes fun of his own ethnicity a couple of times which is refreshing, however there is no need. His command of English is impeccable. He is passionate about the topic of finance, self directed investing, saving money, and having money for retirement. The job he did in narrating his own book could not have been duplicated by a "hired gun." Nice job.
I have been trying to save and invest for many years. Remit accomplished a miracle in his book (with me) in that he got me started. I picked from among his recommended vehicles and got started the next day. He made it so understandable and easy that the fear was gone. I actually got started and it is simple once you understand.
I had gone through several professional advisors including two "fee only" and one major chain broker. I also have my own trading account and some friends who know what they are doing. None of that really helped. Ramit's book helped. I was so sick of educated pros talking in circles and trying to get me to do what was best for them that I was paralyzed into inaction. Now, although I am not an expert, I have gotten started and I feel that I understand what I am doing to the point that I am as safe as anyone else who is earning interest on their money. The book is also perfect for those who have little but want to change that. Don't be intimidated or hesitate. This book is worth ten times the money and might just get you on the path as it did me. I highly recommend it.
