5.0 out of 5 stars I Was Taught To Be Rich., March 22, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: I Will Teach You To Be Rich (Paperback)
Length:: 3:09 Mins

Ramit is part of the new round of financial savants. It is one thing to know about finance, another to be able to write about it, and another entirely to write about it in a way to motivate the younger crowd. Ramit hits the tri-fecta here.

I'm good with my money and pretty knowledgeable but am the kind of person who needs a nudge now and again. Ramit gave me that nudge (and some great tips to boot) with this book. I'm barely through chapter two and already have a savings/profit of about $860 (as I explain in the video...)

Get this book for yourself, and with the money you save, buy another copy for a teenager or college student you know and care about.

Although it raises a question in my mind about your objectivity, I suppose it is impressive that you could complete your review before the publication date.

I pre-ordered the book in February and it came early. Not sure why, nor do I care. I'm holding the book in my hand, so it's not like I reviewed it on vapor. For you and other nay sayers ("link or it didn't happen!") who think I'm just a glam fan-boy doing my duty for a free book, here is a link to a screenshot from my credit card company showing the posted finance fee refund I talk about in my video. http://tr.im/FinanceFeeRefundImage - look at the top transaction. THAT'S why I gave it a glowing review.

Hi Mike, the end of your video review reminded me of Reading Rainbow, the line in the song that says "Take a look, its in a book...(It's Reading Rainbow!)". Put a smile on my face! Any how, wanted to thank you for the informative review and testimony on how this book encouraged you to take action with your credit card companies. Very inspiring!

Nice review, but is this book more about how to negotiate what you lost (like your example with the credit cards) or actually about how to make more money? I'm looking more for something that will allow me to make passive income or money from stocks, etc.

The publication date listed on Amazon is not what you think it is. Books are usually released on Amazon several weeks before their publication date.

What happens is this: The publisher picks a publication date, but mails books out to bookstores about 2 - 3 weeks in advance. So, for example, if the publication date is Sept 1, bookstores may possess it by around August 15. Physical bookstores will typically hold on to a book until the official publication date, but Amazon decides to sell it immediately.

So what happened here is very common - probably the norm. You can absolutely purchase and receive books on Amazon well before the publication date.
