At last, for a generation that's materially ambitious yet financially clueless comes I Will Teach You To Be Rich, Ramit Sethi's 6-week personal finance program for 20-to-35-year-olds. 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. Sethi covers 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, it is a hip blueprint to building wealth and financial security. Every month, 175,000 unique visitors come to Ramit Sethi's website,, to discover the path to financial freedom. They praise him thoughtfully ("Your site summarizes everything I want with my life--to be rich in finances, rich in experience, rich in family blessings," Dan Esparza) and effusively ("Dude, you rock. I love this site!" Richard Wu). The press has caught on, too: "Ramit Sethi is a rising star in the world of personal finance writing . . . one singularly attuned to the sensibilities of his generation. his style is part frat boy and part silicon Valley geek, with a little bit of San Francisco hipster thrown in" (San Francisco Chronicle). His writing is smart, his voice is full of attitude, and his ideas are uncommonly sound and refreshingly hype-free.

The 21st century presents some remarkable challenges for young people looking to make their way in the world. All the good jobs require at least a college degree and many of them require post-graduate work. At the same time, the costs of education are skyrocketing leading students to pile up enormous levels of debt. It's no way to begin a life. I didn't want that for my son, and I don't believe I'm alone. That's why I wrote The Scholarship Shark-to help parents help their children pay for college. I went through this process with my son recently, and we were-with God's help-able to come up with $700,000 in scholarships that pay for his undergraduate work and graduate school and I've found that the way to win a scholarship isn't to apply for everything in sight, but to target those that fit who your son or daughter is, and what they want to do and to go after them hard. The Scholarship Shark offers a roadmap that will allow parents, guidance counselors, and others who mentor students to use a use a combination of faith and works to zero in on the right scholarship opportunities regardless of GPA, class rank, or test scores. The book is a combination of hardcore advice and our family's personal testimony of how we made this happen, and how God helped us. Getting a child through college-not to mention graduate school-without a mountain of debt is a modern day miracle. It happened for us, and it can happen for you.
