Book Giveaway: I Will Teach You To Be Rich

April 23, 2012 | Kate Horrell

The Kashman family is preparing to PCS this summer, so it is time for another round of “Kate gives away her books!”   Every day this week, I will be putting up another book to be given away to a lucky reader.

Today’s book is I Will Teach You To Be Rich by Ramit Sethi.  As my daughter said, “That’s the best book title ever!”  I like Ramit a lot, and this book could be a great tool for someone who doesn’t have a lot of knowledge about financial topics like credit cards, bank accounts, and investment accounts.  Ramit’s style is easy to read and pretty funny, too.

To enter the contest, please leave a comment telling me what part of personal finance you need to learn more about.  I will use a random number generator to select a winner.  The contest ends at midnight EST on Friday, 27 April 2012.  Winners will be notified by email so be sure that the email you use for the comment is correct.

  9. Faith says:

    I'm going through a divorce and need to make wise investment and retirement decision; I am from a different country and cannot go back with my children, so I need to make good decisions so I can survive on my own.

  10. Deb says:

    I need to know how to transfer an old 401k to my TSP, or some other account, and what options are best. I don't have much in there, but the stock from my old employer isn't doing well, and I don't expect it to ever improve.

  11. Amber says:

    I need to know more about retirement saving. TSP, 401K, IRA, Roth IRA. I have no clue which one is best for us.

  12. rcstonermdaf says:

    I would like to understand better why it took me so long to start to want to learn about personal finance; why we were all taught trigonometry and calculus in high school but I never saw "Saving $2000/yr from age 18-26 = Saving $2000/yr from age 26-retirement", much less how to properly invest it; and how to teach my children a harder but more sure path to wealth than aspiring to be a reality TV star, thinking like you're poor so you can live like you're rich. I think living in a trailer in the woods for a few years might do them some good, but my wife won't have it, lol.

    I suppose a more concrete (and boring) answer would be applying the intricacies of tax law to all my financial maneuvers.

  13. Mary says:

    I would like to know all about the right moves to handle financial decisions and make things better for the future and for the well-being of my family.

  14. Kyle Nelson says:

    I need to learn about how to manage my retirement funds as a group instead of as individual accounts.

  15. Trav says:

    I want to learn how to etrade.
