Customer Reviews

She has included lots of very interesting information in the book.
John Chancellor
That's something that isn't a big deal here, but might throw some people off if they are looking at a more in-depth look at "why" we make the money mistakes we make.
C.E.
This book contains sound financial advice that will help even the most financially clueless reader start down the path to riches.

This book contains sound financial advice that will help even the most financially clueless reader start down the path to riches. I have studied personal finance since 2002, and I consider myself a very frugal and informed person, and my review reflects this perspective. Let me begin with my positive impressions:

- Torabi's advice is solid, even though a lot of it is "commonsense." Unfortunately, in America today, saving money, identifying goals, setting and sticking to deadlines, spending within one's means, etc, have been replaced by the behaviors that led to the credit and housing bubbles. This shows that there is a wide-open market for "commonsense" wisdom. This book would be a helpful handbook for all students, and those entering the "real world" for the first time.

- Torabi has done her homework, and includes research, statistics, and other hard data that make her presentation stronger.

- The book is interesting. She loads the text with stories of herself and others. I was genuinely interested in reading what came next.

- Torabi explores psychological aspects of money and finance. Our spending or saving is a function of our personalities and past. Certain exercises in the book helped me see why I view money and finance the way I do. Chapter four was particularly helpful, and caused me to reevaluate my views on money and success. Looking back to my childhood, I heard the word "financial crisis" far more than I ever heard anything about investing. My relationship with money has not been very positive, and I plan to change the relationship!

- The last chapters, within the "Raising the Bar" section, were the most helpful to me, which makes sense given the knowledge of finance I already have.

I have proudly been a stay at home Mom for the past 9 years. It was a decision that both my husband and I both made together and although it was certainly tight at times, we managed it and I am so thankful that I have had an opportunity to do it.

We didn't have hoards of money growing up and I certainly didn't in my 20s when I met my husband and I am ashamed to say though that I've never been great at managing money long term so we've been 'one of those' households that my husband has managed our finances. He's great at it, I'm not so the job has always been his. Getting caught up with busy kids, it was easy to lost in the day to day and justifying putting off REALLY learning about money so I did. Some might say, how hard is it? Live within your budget and save your extra money. Now that our youngest has started Kindergarten, we now have a dual income household. Now what? I've decided that it's time that I REALLY learn about money and how to HELP manage, contribute and build our nest egg for our family.

This was the perfect book for me to review since I consider myself a beginner with long term finances. Some of it doesn't apply to me...it has a feel to the younger crowd at times (early 20s) but not so much where I couldn't benefit from learning. It's simple, easy to read, understand and to start to implement. IDEALLY I think it's great for parents to read then to encourage their college bound / 18, 19, early - mid 20s kids could read.

With a title like "Psych Yourself Rich", you'd expect some really innovative and creative ideas and exercises about how you think about money. From the title I expected this book to talk about mental and emotional views of money and how we can change how we relate to finances. Sadly that was not the case and the title was a bit misleading. There is nothing about \mind, and all about matter (like one reviewer noticed).

It's a fine, solid book about finances but its not innovative at all. This book isn't any different than most other books about managing your money on the market. Its the same old, same old. It does read easier than alot of dry financial books, and the author does pepper it with some personal anedoctes along the way. Its a good book if you are young and need to learn basic finance help. For most readers, this has already been learned and is common sense.

The author is young and I think this is geared towards a younger audience who over indulge. If you are looking for something about changing your mental/psychological relationship with money this isn't the book for you.

Perhaps because the author has spent much time coaching young women about basic finance in the United States, she may have come to consider their plights as universal, and therefore not thought to qualify the title to that segment of the population. Granted, the subtitle reads, "Get the Mindset and Discipline You Need to Build Your Financial Life." However, some readers may not understand she means from ground zero.
I'm not a financial wizard, yet I found nothing new in these pages. I did find a lot of anecdotal information and a lot of to-do lists.
The book did not seem well organized to me. The beginning had a number of quotes from important people, which led me to expect great insider information. The beginning of each chapter also had some interesting quotes. Sadly, I found the quotes to be the most interesting bits in the book.
Since this is a coaching book, here's my responding anecdote to give an example of coaching differences. There were two coaches for my high school tennis team. One was good at cheers and slogans, "Come on, ace that serve!" "Corner, corner, corner!" etc. Her shouting lended energy to the players if they were starting to lag, but most times proved distracting. The other coach sat us down before the matches and reviewed what she knew about the players we'd be facing. She warmed us up with specific exercises and described how each one worked to enhance our backhands, etc. And she checked our racket faces for any loose areas. She spoke softly and not often, but we all hung on her every word, from greenest freshman to seasoned senior, because it worked for all of us.
For me, Psych Yourself Rich would have been the sort of book written by the first coach.
