  1. Thanks for this post, I’ve been on your site many times, but looks like I missed out on some of the better ones earlier.

    Btw, what do you think of this –

    Do people apply “hyperbolic time discounting” when it comes to Personsal Finance too?

  2. “you can get an instant download of my ebook…”

    Seriously, just say “You can purchase my ebook here…” or give the thing away for free already.

    Stop trying to fool people and stop kidding yourself.

  3. Thanks for directing us late-joiners to the starting-line!

  4. To anonymous in #2,

    Can you read? He was talking about BUYING Christmas gifts, and then mentioned the ability to download his book. If he was implying anything, he was implying it needs to be bought.

  5. Hey Ramit–check your mailbox will ya? (I’m DYIN to get your eBook!!!).



  6. Jennifer Lynn

    Man, some of you guys are like rabid animals over this ebook. How much does it cost, like, a few bucks at most? I’m sure the quality of the content will far exceed the cost.

    I’ll buy it next week and let y’all know.


  7. Wishing you a great 2007 Ramit!
    Hope you’re enjoying your holidays.

  8. Got Wealth?

    Hey Ramit! Found your site recently. Very informative! Keep up the great work.

  9. I’m curious, do you have any ideas about why the percentage of women reading your site is low? I’m a 35-year-old woman – I know, not exactly your target demographic – and I read your site regularly.

  10. Finance Guide 101

    Hello Ramit! Great place to visit regularly, hope you will reach highest peak of success this year 2007. The way you are guiding and helping students is great. Well I am a new reader but I will be your regular reader.
