Non Fiction Book Review: I Will Teach You to be Rich

I Will Teach You to Be Rich by Ramit Sethi

I Will Teach You to Be Rich: No Guilt. No Excuses. No BS. Just a 6-Week Program That Works
by Ramit Sethi (Goodreads Author)

3 out of 5 stars

The title kind of put me off, because no one can give you a magic formula that will suddenly make you rich. However, as I began reading I was relieved to see that there are no get-rich-quick schemes in this book. It’s just general advice about saving, spending wisely, investing, and saving for retirement.

There are chapters about what type of checking and saving accounts are best, how to efficiently pay off credit card debt, setting a budget for your spending, and setting up retirement accounts. There are several chapters about investing in stocks and bonds. I liked that there are many different investing options outlined and explained.

I skipped all of the personal anecdotes and stupid jokes, and only read the parts with actual common sense advice. I was pleased to find that some of the things he advises are things I am already doing, and now I feel like I have some ideas for being even smarter with my money.
