Everything You Need To Know About The TFD Book!

As you guys have no doubt heard by now, TFD is releasing a book on January 2nd, 2018, called The Financial Diet: A Total Beginner’s Guide To Getting Good With Money. It’s a crash course in everything we talk about on our site and channel, and an exploration of all the ways money touches our life and how to master it, chapter by chapter. We spoke to over 20 experts featured in the book about everything from budgeting to career growth to mastering your kitchen. And in full color and beautifully illustrated, it’s the book about money you actually want to read.

The Financial Diet will teach you:

  • How to get good with money in a year.
  • How to earn more money at any job.
  • The ingredients everyone needs to keep in their kitchen.
  • How to talk about awkward money stuff with your friends.
  • How to make (and stick to!) a budget.
  • What the hell it means to invest (and how you can do it).
  • How to take care of your house like a grown-up.
  • And many, many other things!

If you would like to pre-order it, which we of course highly encourage you to do, here are the links to do just that:

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iTunes

And beyond just the book, we are going on tour!

We will announce more details about each stop soon, but each event — in partnership with Mint — will be an educational salon, party, and networking event all in one! We’ll be starting with our kickoff party here in NYC, and going around the country to meet the TFD community and celebrate our book. Tickets are $40 per person, which gets you a copy of our book, open bar, food, and gift bag of goodies to take home with you. We’re working with Mint to make each event not just a boring old book signing, but a party where we all get together, have some wine, talk about money, and have an amazing time!

Below are the cities we’re visiting, and the dates we have so far. We’ll be updating this with more info and links to tickets, so check back here and on our social media to look out for your city!

    For events taking place before the book release date will attendees still recieve a copy of the book?

    • chelseafagan

      Yep! Every ticket purchased gets one book copy (among other things!), and the people attending the events pre-release will be the first to get them, before they even hit shelves. 🙂

  • Mary Harman

    THIS IS AWESOME. The party component is a great way to invite your pals and get the ball rolling with talking to friends about money. I cannot wait. I will see you in Chicago!

  • Jack

    Sweeeeet. Will likely be driving down to Seattle from Vancouver and will want a carpool buddy!! YVR peeps hmu 🙂

    • Megan Stacey

      I’m flying into SEA but will happily drive back to YVR with you! I might have a suitcase though.

  • Congratulations to you guys!!

  • Put the Boston dates in my calendar. Congratulations!

  • Serafima Aleksandrova

    Congrats, guys! It’s just amazing. Step-by-step, article after article, you made me start believing in myself once again. Need to have this book to continue working my way from poor pockets 🙂 How can I get it (hard copy) if I live in Moscow, Russia? Thanks a lot.

    • chelseafagan

      Amazon! 🙂

      • Serafima Aleksandrova

        Can’t wait to see it 😉

  • Sarah M.

    See y’all in Mountain View! Are you going to send out notices when tickets go on sale? Also, if you don’t have a place picked in Austin, you should go to Book People. They do the best book signings.

  • Lyndsay Old

    Congratulations TFD! I’m an avid following of your Youtube channel and blog, and have recommended it to many of my friends. I’m really looking forward to reading the book! A wee suggestion to add Toronto to the book tour or future tours 🙂

    • Marisa Bachetti

      Would also benefit from a Toronto stop!

  • Megan Stacey

    See you in Seattle!!!!

  • Swati

    Can’t wait for the book!
    Will you be visiting any cities outside the US?

  • Mystyna

    Bought my Boston tickets today! Just a helpful hint… You guys should probably do another post about it since several of the dates are on sale now.

  • GemNoelle

    Can’t decide whether to buy tickets— I definitely plan to buy the book and it would be cool to meet the founders of TFD but November has been a really expensive month for me and I am nervous of going to event where I don’t know anyone 😥.

  • Susanne

    Oh wow! DC is already sold out. I dithered too long in getting my ticket 🙁
