By Ramit Sethi
This book, a 6-week personal finance program for 20-to-35-year-olds, was written for a generation that’s materially ambitious yet financially clueless.
A completely practical approach delivered with a nonjudgmental style that makes readers want to do what Sethi says, it is based around the four pillars of personal finance – banking, saving, budgeting, and investing – and the wealth-building ideas of personal entrepreneurship.
- how to save time by not wasting it managing money
- the guns and cars myth of credit cards
- how to negotiate like an Indian – the conversation begins with “no”
- why “Budgeting Doesn’t Have to Suck!”
- how to get things rolling – for real – with only $20
- what most people don’t understand about taxes
- how to get a CEO to take you out to lunch
- how to avoid the Super Mario Brothers trap by making your savings work harder than you do
- the difference between cheap and frugal
- the hidden relationship between money and food
Not to mention his first key lesson: Getting started is more important than being the smartest person in the room.
Integrated with his website, where readers can use interactive charts, follow up on the latest information, and join the community, this book is a hip blueprint to building wealth and financial security.
