At last, for a generation that’s materially ambitious yet financially clueless comes I Will Teach You to Be Rich, Ramit Sethi’s six-week personal finance program for twenty-to-thirty-five-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, but his first key lesson is on why 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, Sethi’s book is a hip blueprint to building wealth and financial security.
