How's that for a tease? The author of said book is coming on Mountain Views at the end of April...
Ramit Sethi, author of the instant New York Times bestseller I WILL TEACH YOU TO BE RICH—based on his blog of the same name. The book released last Monday and shot to #1 in books on Amazon.com, selling out in a matter of hours and debuted on the New York Times bestseller list. And the buzz continues to build.
I WILL TEACH YOU TO BE RICH is far from a typical finance book; it’s conversational and it’s humorous. For young people faced with a mess of an economy and soaring unemployment rates, 26-year-old Ramit gives tips that help readers start where they are. His credo is that simply getting started is more important than becoming an expert and his plan works. But don’t take it from me, check out some recent videos of readers:
Some info on Ramit and the book:
At 26, his take on personal finance is irreverent and refreshing—he’s not the same old voice droning about taxes and estate planning.
His tips are suited to anyone with at least $50 and the will to take control of their finances.
He doesn’t preach. You won’t hear him telling people not to spend money on lattes, because as Ramit says, “that advice hasn’t worked for 50 years.”
His six-week plan is about doing less with finances, so people can go live their lives.
Sethi can discuss why—even in a turbulent economy—automatic investing is the way to go; how to spend only three hours a month managing your money; why using a credit union over a bank makes sense; and much more. He’s smart, opinionated, and witty—in short, a great interview. Here is a link to a recent interview Ramit did with ABC News:
