If so you might be wondering why you should buy this updated version.
1. Your financial situation has changed since reading the first version.
2. It’s only the cost of a few cups of coffee Ramit will tell you to keep buying.
3. When executed accordingly with the new updated checking and investment accounts recommended you will have at least a 1,000 times return on investment when you follow his advice in the next few years.
4. If you have investment accounts you’re being screwed by your broker which is charging you a 1% management fee which is actually costing you 28% in the long term against money that fee prevents you from making with the Compounding Interest.
5. Ramit is a badass and actually lives by the advice he gives which very few financial “experts” can say the same.
6. This book saved me hundreds of dollars of fees by changing my checking accounts away from 2 banks he highly advises against which you most likely have an account or 2 with. (This alone will pay for the book 30x)
7. Let me guess you and your partner argue about finances? He includes word by word templates of how to talk about your finances with your partner and finally get on the same page.
8. Buying the book is the least you could do after reading and following Ramit’s amazing free content for years or being on his newsletter.
Read the book.
Take control of your financial situation.
You will be grateful you did this now instead of waiting another decade hoping, praying your finances will magically change.
Ps, I had the privilege of receiving an advanced copy, so I know the awesomeness you’re about to enjoy when you take action and buy the book for yourself and everyone you care about.
I read this book in 2013 and am 100% debt free, have saved money (even if just $10) every week since then, and have also had an automated system for my finances the entire time that made it all possible.
Ramit's scripts have saved me thousands of dollars on loan interest, helped lower my phone and insurance bills, and given me the confidence to take control of my financial life and future.
Just one chapter of this book could change your life. Don't even waste a second debating it and just get started.
Thanks for everything, Ramit!

Fast forward one year and not only has Ramit’s advice made and saved me more than I could possibly imagine, he also offered to guide me and a group of select others through the 2nd edition of IWT.
Ramit looked at my exact numbers, said everything was looking good, and then showed me how and where they could be improved. Specifically Ramit suggested I increased the amount I invest in index funds and letting them compound, as that was the most beneficial piece of advice for my particular scenario (under 25 and able to use time to my advantage). This one simple change is set to make me an extra £162,000 by adding an extra £50 a month into what I currently invest... and that is only going to continue to increase.
Furthermore, Ramit showed the group how financial issues are caused through psychology and emotion rather than being to do with simple mathematics. The power of not waiting for permission and understanding how and why we make our financial decisions (or do not make them) was revolutionary and something that I have not seen discussed in other financial books. In Ramit’s words ‘This is a psychology book wrapped to look about finance’ and he is correct. If you know that you have let certain financial decisions get away from you, Ramit will help you get back on track with specific steps and zero judgement.
Every single person who was in the group was ecstatic with the progress they made in the 4 weeks that we had together and it was very much worth staying up until 3am every Monday in return for a lifetime of financial literacy.
Thank you Ramit, anyone would be a fool to not buy this book.
Just another self help entry into the pyramid scheme of 'you too can get rich' from an author who has only got rich from teaching you how to get rich.
P.S those on six figures will be pleased to know they can sign up for Ramit's advanced course. Just make sure you've signed the blank cheque first.
Ramit hits it spot on. This is a down to earth ; no BS kinda book, no big fancy terms, no crazy plans or budgeting ... Just basic finance tips that will put your financial life on autopilot mode and quick, simple solutions for retirement and living a "Rich Life" that will work for 90% of people (and is likely already 10x better than whatever you're doing right now). Sounds too good to be true? Read the book, you'll see.
I already shared this book with a few friends and colleagues and will be forcing my younger sisters to read this so that they can start planning their Rich Life asap while still in their 20s. I wish someone had given me this book 10 years ago but as they say ; the best time to start saving was yesterday, the 2nd best time is NOW.
For Canadians ; you can safely replace "401(k)" references with RRSP (RÉER) and "Roth IRA" references with TFSA (CÉLI) in the book and although the accounts are not EXACTLY the same as their American counterpart, big picture wise they serve the same purpose. As for the banks proposed in the books, you can easily find equivalents with a bit of Google searching (try searching for "high interest savings account Canada" for instance).
This is an excellent book and guide to get yourself on track financially. You can skip parts that are not relevant, and go back to time and time again...
WARNING: Do not read before bed. You will get too excited and not be able to sleep!
One small note is that the book is written for the American market, not Canada. The concepts are the same, however, there are some terminology differences. These are easily searchable.
Oh boy what a delight! The book is funny, easy to implement and very interesting. Refined my concepts and mentality about personal finance and money and I'm pretty grateful for that.
I'm not north American and had to adapt the concepts and ideas to another country and reality, but they worked regardless of my background and where I am. (I'm from Latin America and live in Germany)
I already recommended and bought the book to family and friends, and would strongly recommend to anyone who isn't so sure at the moment because of the cheesy title. Just grow up and buy it. If it's not for you just leave it. But I'm pretty sure if you give it a chance you won't regret it.
Thanks Ramit and everybody who helped make this book a reality.
Specifically, I have a) saved tens of thousands of dollars in fees for banking and investment accounts, b) come up with a plan and a finishing date for paying down my debt (something I'd never actually considered). c) become really conscious about my spending... so I can spend money on what I want instead of paying for things I don't use (e.g., I now save $100/mo on cancelling unused subscriptions and services), d) simplified my entire money plan so I don't have to think about it any more, and i can focus on more important questions,
Ramit isn't offering ground breaking or cutting edge technology or quick hacks. What his is offering is better. Step by step actions that you will want to take - that is his super power.
As Ramit has said "find your mentor and do everything they say" - when it comes to personal finance, Ramit should be your mentor.
Una gran parte del libro è però dedicata a Roth Ira e 401k che, non lavorando negli USA, è praticamente inutile, e questa non è una colpa dell'autore. Però, nonostante il linguaggio semplice e l'atteggiamento leggero verso il tema della finanza, il libro non mi è risultato scorrevole da leggere per via di tutte le anticipazioni e le promesse che per la prima metà del libro ti raccontano ciò che imparerai nei prossimi capitoli, mentre per la seconda metà del libro ti raccontano ciò che hai imparato fino adesso. Stessa cosa vale per le varie testimonianze dei lettori del libro ed i vari paragrafi con citazione e racconti, che quasi ad ogni pagina interrompono la lettura principale.
It’s a bit too focused on the US reality, and some countries could have some differences, but I believe the general idea can be applied everywhere. It probably could be a little bit shorter, some stuff gets repeated over and over, but on the other hand that helps you remember it.
I also recommend to checkout Ramith online, he has a funny and pleasing personality :)
