Great book for ages 8-16 year olds. Teaches lessons about entrepreneurship and money management. My kids (ages 8, 11, and 13) were all very engaged and inspired by the book.

(FYI: It does have 2 or 3 mentions of Playboy magazine which seemed really unnecessary and unfortunate as there are all ages of children reading the book.)
