Common sense, in 12-pt font. Some teens might find this book helpful. I received much of this advice (buy insurance, spend less than you earn, save for retirement, buy used cars, etc.) from one workshop upon college graduation, when my school offered "Disorientation" classes.

My copy of this book is autographed, as the author was the keynote speaker at a training today. He is a fabulous speaker--very inspiring.

A good listing of ideas designed to get teenagers started on the road of life. Some things are a little basic, others are right on the money, so to speak. The ideas in this book will help people start thinking about money in the right way to get a good start. There is a lot of uncommon sense in this book.

I had to read this book for a financial literacy class, and I found it very helpful. I liked how it was set up. There was enough humor to keep me interested in a boring topic. I would recamend this to any teenager who wants to know more about how to handle their money smartly.

This is a quick read, but sometimes it feels like it was intended for nine year olds rather than teens. VERY informal and chatty type writing. Some of the information is really good (if basic) but some is pretty sketchy. I liked when he used personal examples.

Another great and useful book by Chad Foster. With a poor economy, this book would be especially helpful to the teenagers our lives! Contains practical tips and tools for becoming financially successful as a teenager.
