Editorial Reviews

Review

"Farnoosh Torabi's You’re So Money is the perfect blend of fresh advice and bold attitude necessary to educate a horribly underserved generation about personal finance.”
—Jim Cramer

"You're So Money is the best financial book for young people I have read in ten years.  Farnoosh's style is entertaining, straight to the point and powerful.  You'll laugh as you read and learn how fun it can be to live and finish rich!" 
—David Bach, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Automatic Millionaire and Start Late, Finish Rich

"Farnoosh knows so much about personal finance that I practically make more money just looking at her. And reading You’re So Money gave me the advice I needed to keep my good life rolling."
—James Altucher, founder of Stockpickr.com

“Farnoosh Torabi's book is a hilarious must-read for anyone who wants to live like a king, even if he's just a lowly serf with nothing in his bank account but blighted turnips, and, like, $3000.”
—Ben Lerer, co-founder of thrillist.com

"In a clear and witty way, Farnoosh tells you from experience how to jumpstart your money."
—Susan Beacham, founder of MoneySavvyGeneration

"After I read You’re So Money, I immediately ordered copies to give to my three children in college. The lessons of the book define one of the best courses they could take. Indeed, this is a must read for every college student -- enjoyable, informative, and a powerful guide for the next phase of their lives and beyond."
—James B. Thomas, Dean, Smeal College of Business, The Pennsylvania State University

Format: Paperback
The first chapter of this book was great; the author has great voice and easily got me hooked. The personal stories are a nice way to make an otherwise dry subject more interesting and entertaining. But as you read the book you find that the author's advice is really just plain common sense. What I really stated to dislike was when she would constantly contradict herself. In one chapter she would say not to buy things on sale and then in another she would say how it's a good thing to buy things on sale. She claims she was able to afford to buy an apartment in New York on a Salary of $50,000 but later you find out that her parents bought it for her using their home equity. She also suggests doing thinks like babysitting to make extra cash, just like her friend who makes $400 on a weekend afternoon babysitting her siblings in the Hamptons, come on! I think if this book offered more realistic not so typical advise for your typical young professional (who doesn't necessarily have well off parents or come from money) would have made this book a must read. I instead caution those willing to spend the money on reading this.

Format: Paperback
This book has some good tips and ideas, my favorite being to figure out what's important to you before you figure out how to budget your money. Sounds simple, but sometimes we get so caught up in paying off debts, saving and investing, that we forget to live in the moment. I've already made some changes based on her advice, by drastically cutting back on eating out and putting that money towards a trip to Europe next year (so much more rewarding than a few sushi dinners).
One annoyance - she says that renters are wasting their money and that everyone should be a homeowner. Then she proceeds to say that her parents paid for her condo. Who should I ask to help me, my deceased father or my mother who lives off $10,000 in Social security checks per year? Some of us have to do it on our own, and that means paying rent instead of drowning in mortgage payments. I think it's a huge mistake for young people to buy homes too soon. Rent isn't "wasting money", it's paying for a place to live.

Far too much focus on your wardrobe. She makes it sound like wearing designer clothes is worth sacrificing your health and eating spagetti-o's for months on end. Additionally, she boasts purchasing an apartment in NYC- but uses her parents home equity line of credit. If only we all had the privilege!

I saw her on a video make an insightful comment and mistakenly thought she knew something. Stick to Suze Orman.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Matthew Gallagher on May 8, 2008
Format: Paperback
The perfect book for someone in their 20's getting their first taste of managing their personal finances. It focuses on how to save money and prioritize your wishes in order to get the most out of the money you have.

The best part is that it does not read like a finance text, instead, Torabi uses practical, everyday examples instead of esoteric terminology or useless analogies.

The book reminds me of the old adage, "Some people learn from their mistakes, smart people learn from other peoples mistakes." Read the book to get some financial wisdom instead of having to make your own mistakes. It is the perfect gift for any young person you know.

If you struggle with money in ANY way, you need to read this book. After following Farnoosh's advice and tips, I finally feel in control of my money for the first time EVER. She even inspired me to pay off all my credit card debt - which I thought impossible. And I am almost debt free. I wish I had this book when I was 21. Thanks Farnoosh! I am ready for your next one!

Format: Kindle Edition
I first saw this book in a Chinese version in a local bookstore. But since I prefer reading in English on my e-device, I bought this version.

First, this book should include more clearly in their description how this book only works for people in the States. I, being in a foreign country, does not deal with the same tax or insurance issues. Most of the chapters were just useless to me.

Second, what she writes in this book is really very very very basic. If you have worked a few years, and have heard about finance lessons/stories from friends or family, you probably already know all that's been in the book.

Format: Paperback
I read several pages and that was enough. To each his(or her)own, but passing judgement on Suzi Orman as some one who shames people for their financial mistakes just tells me a couple of things. Farnoosh is pretty immature and is probably to prideful to admit her jealousy. I mean come on, who has their own television show helping people with their finances? Suzi did not get their by being rewarded for giving out "unrealistic advice"! Sorry but when a writer puts down a person who is 100 times more successful in her very same endeavors I do not need to waste any more time reading. IMHO Farnoosh will limit her own sucess by writing such ridiculous untruths and should send an apology to Miss Orman. But thats just me.

As a woman in my 30s, I found this book to be very hip and enlightening. It informs younger people that they can have a great quality of life, without spending too much money, and it comes up with some fresh ideas.

I also like the idea of inspiring younger people women to invest, yet in a very positive manner that is fun to read. The Jim Cramer contributions were also a plus!
