What would you name my upcoming book? (Winner gets free stuff)

Ramit Sethi

As you know, I’m working on the I Will Teach You To Be Rich book.

My editor and I are brainstorming title ideas, so I decided to open it up to iwillteachyoutoberich readers. One title choice is obviously “I Will Teach You To Be Rich,” but what would you pick besides that?

The winner will get 5 pre-release, signed copies of the first-edition book, and I’ll donate $101 to the charity of your choice (Indian people always add an extra $1 to gifts. I don’t know why.)

If you could pick the title of my book, what would it be? To submit your idea, leave a comment.

    Good Luck with the book.

    Re: Indians and the extra $1:
    The only explanation I have for this is in the context of wedding gifts: giving an odd number makes it harder for the couple to evenly split the gift and leave each other, so odd-numbered amounts symbolically reinforce the bond of marriage.

    I can only assume that habit carried over into every other instance of giving money as a gift.

    As for my title suggestion: “This Book Will Make You Rich”

  8. Ryan

    Practically Rich – How being simple and unsexy can help you reach your financial goals.

  9. Katie B.

    I agree with Paula. You couldn’t ask for a more perfect name than “I Will Teach You to Be Rich.”

    “I Will Teach You to Be Rich” is already a brand that is known to quite a few people, why wouldn’t you want to capitalize on that brand recognition?!

    It’s PERFECT for a book title!

  10. Rob

    This Book Will Teach You to be Rich

  11. kai

    Redefining Rich: a guide for Generation Y.

    why: because your audience is young people; and I like your views on “what is rich” better than anything else. Make people think what it means for them to be rich, why they need the money in the first place.

    I believe you should stick with the obvious title to build your brand. Your book will be in front of people who have sadly never heard of “” and this is a great opportunity to strengthen that brand.

    More importantly, I personally look forward to a series: iwillteachyoutoberich Volume 1 and so on.

    Keep up the great work!

    You’ve discussed the notion of using targeted questions / declarations to get a targeted response….so use that same approach to title the book. I know that when it comes to finance a clear and specific title helps me decide whether I will buy the book…

    “Learn to be Rich: The Complete Financial How-To Guide for the Young Adult”

    From what you’ve mentioned about your book the main selling points are that it is very “how-to” or “nuts and bolts” oriented, and it is gear specifically for the young adult starting on their financial path…at least that’s what I’m hoping for…

  17. Tim

    Next time, decide to give $99 so that, following Indian customs, you’ll give a round $100.

    I don’t know why you’d change it–you already have a brand name, why dissociate yourself from it? Besides, it lends itself to sequels: I will teach you to be richer, I will teach you to be even richer, etc.

    Subtitles seem to be in vogue, though, so perhaps “I Will Teach You To Be Rich: It’s Easier Than You Think.”

  83. FMF

    A few thoughts:

    1. You crack me up with that $1 comment. 😉

    2. I’d name the book the same as the blog.

    3. I’d work on several subtitles that explain what the book is about, pick the top four, and run a survey to see which people like best.

    4. Think about who your audience is. It’s likely that the people who read your blog will NOT be buyers of your book. It’s more likely that newbies to the world of maney management will be more likely to buy the book. Hence, when you do #3 above, be sure to get this group involved somehow. (BTW, this is speculation, but the reasoning seems sound to me.)

    5. When you get the book done, let me know. I’ll review it and be willing to help you promote it as I know it will be quality content.

    Take all of the suggestions above, and plug them into adsense. For each of the top 10 titles that are already getting hits (adsense tells you what is most popular, and most expensive, already), put $50 into adsense ads.

    For each of the title-based ads, have them link to page on your blog, with a parameter that indicates which ad they came from. This can be done via separate but identical pages, or by using GET parameters. Finally, with all of this in place, after one month you can obtain the following data:
    -Which titles were clicked on the most, as ads
    -Which titles lead to the most submitted email addresses (an indication that someone would be willing to purchase)
    -Which titles lead to the most email addresses per advertisement click.

    Don’t pick your title based on what sounds best to you, unless you’re trying to protect some sort of artistic vision. Don’t pick what people recommend. Pick what people are willing to buy.

    I wonder if the word “rich” will give people the wrong idea. I think that when people see a book that promises to make them rich, they believe that they’ll wake up one day to find huge bags of cash have been delivered to their house.

    In other words, they want to get rich so they can change their lifestyle, instead of changing their lifestyle so they can get rich.

    But hey, name it whatever you want, it’ll still be a good book.

    You Can Be Rich.
    I will teach you, if you will listen.

    Knock, Knock.

    I think you’ve got the idea. The titles and subtitles can be combined in any way. You can also use only the title,.. and so on.
    Anyway, I’m looking forward to the book whatever the title will be.

  116. Munmun

    1.It’s never too late to learn to be rich

    Hi Ramit,

    I’m brand new to your blog. I really enjoy the content, but I think the title doesn’t really do it justice. Your blog offers much sounder advice and food for thought than those “get rich quick” schemes out there. It’s clearly about much more than amassing money. How about something like “Get Enriched Quick” as a title for your book? (a subtitle might be “… and wealth may follow”).

  127. Caro

    My suggestion:

    “Learning to be Rich”

  128. Mario Sanchez

    You need a title and a tagline. Here are my three swags at it:

    Young, Fabulous… and Rich
    How young people are getting really rich, and staying that way.

    Young Money
    How young people are getting really rich, and staying that way.

    Generation $
    How young people are getting really rich, and staying that way.

    The first two use the tactic of mental association with other financial products (Suze’ Ormans book and Cramer’s Mad Money), sort of like 7up did with their un-cola campaign.

    The third one is more original. The word “generation” automatically evoques an association with young people, and the combination with the $ sign is catchy and easy to remember.

    Another tagline could be:
    How young people are using their unfair advantage to get rich…and stay rich.

    Good luck!!

    But really, I second “I Will Teach You To Be Rich”. If that wins, does that mean there will be no winners? Or is the prize split among those of us who agreed with the title? :oP :o)

    If not IWTYTBR, I think something related to your themes, which are a bit broader than just personal finance, since you use “rich” in a broader sense and the ultimate purpose is to accomplish goals or live a happy life. Like… Getting Rich, Accomplishing Goals… but not as square sounding. I like the ass-kicking Amberlynn mentioned earlier. Kicking Ass to Financial Success? Or if that’s not “appropriate”, then Laying the Smackdown on Personal Finance…. or… not….

    Main Title: I Will Teach You To Be Rich

    Subtitle: Simple Steps For Anyone to Reach Financial Freedom

    You know I remember one post you made when you questioned why people want to get rich. I hope you definitely raise the question in the book as well. For some people it’s about some kind of artificial ego boost, but for many of us, it’s to alleviate the burdens of having to make decisions based on finances- which a lot of the time is just the result poor planning and preparation.

    The subtitle could also be something like “Don’t Let Money Control Your Life”, “Don’t Let Money Cramp Your Style”, or “Don’t Let Money Make Your Decisions”.

    It’s all about keeping the personal dreams alive, to me anyways.

    “Take everything you know, set it on fire, read this book by the light of the flames, and learn how shit really works”

    I will teach you to be rich sounds kind of gimmicky and would make me skeptical if I didn’t know about your site. “Why we want you to be rich “- Kiyosaki and Trump (or Douche 1 and Douche 2) is a good example. Anything with Rich in the title kind of turns me off instantly, and makes me think, “Oh boy, what kind of bullshit is this guy selling, waste of time. More like I will teach you to make me rich (props to commenter Ben). If he had all the secrets he wouldn’t put them in a book. He’d be getting a rub down on his private island trying to figure out if he wants to build the bonfire tonight out of twenties or hundreds”.

    The people that do know about your site are going to know what the title of the book is even if it isn’t named after the blog (unless you don’t tell us, which I doubt, you shameless self-promoter you). It’s the people that don’t know about the site that I’m assuming you would want to “grab” with the title. And I personally will look at something funny usually, with an eye catching cover (don’t put a stock chart on it, please for the love of god). Yes, I admit that I am not that sophisticated, contrary to popular belief, and can be easily tricked by clever titles and eye candy for a cover (into glancing at the book at least). I doubt anyone will read all of my post (kudos if you made it this far). I barely remember typing this short novel.

    The “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” title is pretty good, but as someone has previously said, a little gimicky for people not familiar with your site. People will think, “what does this guy know that all the other get rich books dont”.

    I think something like “The Common Sense Guide to your Personal Finance” with a secondary title of “How I Will Teach You To Be Rich” would be more appealing to the average reader coming acroos your book in a store.

    Its kinda a long title, but something like this would work best: “The Common Sense Guide to your Personal Finance: How I Will Teach You To Be Rich”

  195. Richard Wood

    Not having read any exerpts from your book in order to get a feel for it, I offer the following possible titles:

    “$ecret $$$ $trategie$”

    “Financial Ba$ic Training”

    “Are You Listening?”

  196. Araviski

    All of this wouldn’t work if everybody were applied those guidelines, this is all about information share. That’s why my suggestion is :

    I Will Teach To Be Rich.
    ——————-Do not tell them

    (Perhaps there’re mistakes because I’m not a native english speaker, but I think you catched the idea)

  197. Araviski

    Of course you should read :
    I Will Teach You To Be Rich.
    ——————-Do not tell them

    (Btw I think a preview comment option on this site would be definitively cool !!)

  198. arjun

    man, everything i thought of is here, will come back after some thinking.
    i agree with whoever said iwillteachyoutoberich doesn’t fully encompass everything the blog has to offer, is this the case for the book as well?

    how about this: instead of promoting a method to get somewhere, which every book title tries to do, you could point out that you’re offering a way to remove ONE (or a couple or more) of people’s most frequent sources of worry/unhappiness from their shit-i-dont-like pile. Even include a little whiteboard drawing about a guy removing money as a factor in unhappiness/worry

  199. Nick Anadiotis

    Ramit Sethi’s guide to getting “rich”: Common sense rules of finance that society forgot to teach you.

    Subtitle: “I will teach you to be rich without giving up your $4 lattes”

    Note: I put the word rich in quotes because unless I’m misreading some of your articles, I get the feeling that this site is to teach you how to live within your means and not spend money just because you have it to spend. Financial security will give you sense of be “rich” because having money in the bank that’s not owed to someone else is very empowering.

    If you just call the book “I will teach you to be rich” I think a number of people would just pass over it, because those people probably already wasted their money on “rich dad, poor dad” and didn’t get a lot of good advice, but they did make that author RICH!

    I think your personality should be in the title. That’s what makes me read your blog. I don’t want a boring or generic title.

    With apologies to Napolean Hill

  208. John

    First, I should tell you that I didn’t actually read the 200 comments that have already been posted, so I apologize if someone has already mentioned this…

    That being said, I was thinking about your plight today while I was out and about at the mall and I decided to walk into one of the bookstores and head to the business/investing section. A quick investigation of the section revealed that approximately 1 in 3 books have titles/subtitles that contain the word “rich.” Before my trip today, I was thinking that you’d be asinine not to utilize the brand recognition that “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” has, but now I’m not so sure. I think giving your book that title won’t allow it to stand out at all.

    My suggestion: think about what your book has to offer that all of the other books out there don’t and emphasize it with your title. While most of those books are crap, there are still a fair number of books on the subject that are quite worthwhile for the new/inexperienced investor (your target market). What does your book tell me that those don’t? Are you just rehashing the same old information or are you bringing something new to the conversation? That’s your selling point; use it in your title.

    If all else fails, just use a synonym for the word rich. My personal favorite: “Achieving Affluence: How Responsible InvestingToday Leads To Your Dreams of Tomorrow.”

    Any time I see a book with the word rich in the title I automatically steer clear because of all the scams out there. Given that, here are my suggestions.

    1. The Do It Yourself Guide to Financial Independance
    2. Financial Independance: Letting Your Money Work For You

    4. What the Wealthy Don’t Want You to Know: Secrets to Financial Freedom

    What is in the book can talk all day long about being rich, but in todays scam filled world, one needs to choose his words carefully if one is to sell a book.

    Are You Rich?

    Simple enough, if I walked by a book and seen a title like this, I would pick it up to see what it is about. The title needs you to be curious, NOT too much info. Last I heard there are only 20% of Americans that read books. That is very sad, so make the title “GRAB” you.

    Many of the suggestions sound like cheap, get rich quick scam books. I would agree that “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” is probably the safest and smartest way to go. Something that I did thing of.

    How about:

    Good luck with the book!

    Shouldn’t we know what your book is about before we try to title it? Does it lean more towards career enhancement, negotiation, recruitment or personal finance motivation? Is it funny or serious? A how to or a memoir? Is your target audience still twenty somethings or the Money Magazine audience? And is your face going to be on the cover?

    Personally if it covers website topics and if your are trying to appeal to 20-somethings, I like:

    Give me fifteen dollars and I WILL TEACH YOU TO BE RICH

    I vote for putting your face on the cover as long as you’re wearing something outrageous.

  297. Joan Crawford

    I would call the book Rich Life Lessons because if its really helpful it will give you information to pass on as well as get rich with.

    I would call it “Learn to Be Rich.” Personally I think, “I will teach you” is sort of like my students papers that begin “in this paper we will talk about 1,2,3.” (we teach them not to do this.) I think the suggestion is short and to the point. “I will teach you” is still implied. I hope you sell many, many books no matter what you decide!

  315. Bitaddict

  316. Letha

    What about “Take Control of your Future: a smart way to earn money”

    It catches the attention by working on the feelings of security, an it also appeals to the “lgocal” thinking crowd. Some may see the words “get rich” and think it’s a scam.
    It’s always good to think of a title that will peak the interest of your readers and work on their feelings.

    Hope this helps.

    And the reason behind adding 1 after 100 are:

    1. It is a belief that having Zero in the last will make the blessings void and would not be auspicious. So we add 1 more to it.

    2. I think that adding Just 1 more, make the figure more special. Like 101, means more than 100. The receiver thinks, he got more.

    It is opposite of “The strategy and tactics of Pricing” who sell any product for $99.95 where buyer thinks he paid less.

    In both cases, it is adding psychological value to the amount, no matter how small. Money is Money.

    “Common Sense Dollars and Cents”
    Simple and concise. Could substitute S with $ and the C with the cent symbol.

    “The Bulls and the Bears” or “Bulls and Bears”
    Tagline: “No bull lessons on personal finance power and perpetual prosperity.”

    “Personal Finance: A Plethora of Principles and Practices”
    Drop “Plethora” to get a conservative title that sounds like my finance textbook. Also a departure from standard titles with “money and rich” in the titles.

    “A Deliberate Walk Down Wealth Street”
    Tagline: “The street Wall Street doesn’t want you to see.”
    A play on the brilliant book “A Random Walk Down Wall Street.”

    “Buy Boardwalk (No get out of jail free cards, sorry.)”
    Monopoly fans will like this. Don’t know about any legal issues though.

    “Cash advance? No, this is enhanced personal finance (biatch) !”
    If 50 Cent was into compound interest he would both suggest this title, and would rename himself 50 dollars … Just kidding about the biatch part.

    “The Fellowship of the Bling”
    Tagline: “Let me guide you to a future of financial freedom.”
    You can portray yourself as the Indian Sam Gamgee and Wall Street as the forces of Mordor. Cast Warren Buffet as Gandalf and you might have a movie deal.

    I Will Teach You to Be Rich: Wealth 2.0

    It carries your brand, nods to both the web where you got your start and the web2.0 generation that you are a part of. Also, Wealth 2.0, as Web 2.0, has a different meaning than wealth in the money hungry days of the 90’s and dot-bomb era. So Wealth 2.0 has a more emotional connection, a fuller meaning than just “money”, credits and debits etc. It’s about choices and the freedoms having a balanced budget and planned savings gives one.

    Anyway, that’s my .02. Hope it helps!

    Love your blog, btw. Good luck.

    Teaching “anybody” to be rich is a huge undertaking. I say this because I feel that just “anyone” cannot be rich. My reasoning is because rich isn’t–WEALTH.

    See most people chase the lure of cash. To have an abundance of cash is deemed to be “rich”. Even if someone has cash, or acquires it suddenly, your book is the teaching of WEALTH.

    All rich people are not wealthy.

    All wealthy people are not rich.

    Since you are trying to teach “anyone” how to be “rich” then you have to remember to TARGET the “poor” man who is “rich” as well as the “wealthy” man who is “rich”

    My TITLE for your book:

    BE RICH “…a guide to living a wealthy lifestyle.”
