This book is a really good introduction to the business world and what a kid should do with his/her money. This book has really good information about investments and business fundamentals. I thought the book was a good starter book for me to gain information about this type of business. I would recommend this book to somebody interested in business

It's hardly updated from 2002 advice and procedures, but it's a good overview of the how's and why's of investing. It is not a good theology of finance though. Don't expect that. I will incentivize my kids to read this.

Read in one day.

I should have checked the publish date before I picked it up from the library for 25 cents... still gained some useful knowledge, but much has changed in the past 15 years, so an updated edition would be better.

Book by: David Gardner

I thought this book was very interesting. It informs the reader, being teenagers, what their best options are for investing money/saving money at a young age. Not only did this book keep me engaged during most of it, but I also feel I learned something about how to manage money in a smart, efficient way.

Throughout the book I was trying to look for what kind of person

As the author of The Teen's Guide to Becoming a Millionaire, and a frequent follower of the Motley Fool, I was very interested to see what David Gardner had to say about investing for teens. The promise of the book is very grand: eight steps to having more money than your parents ever dreamed of. I wanted to see how well the book lived up to its promise.

Overall, I would say that this book does a good job in several areas. In each of these cases, Gardner takes a complex topic and distills it down

Wanting to prepare my 12 year old daughter for a life of smart financial decisions, I bought her this book. I decided to read it first to determine its worth and relevance as well as be able to discuss it with her.

For now, I'm going to have her read the first few introductory chapters and the one with personal stories. She doesn't have much interest in this area so I'm trying to build it. In the next year or two, when she's 13 or 14, I'll have her read the complete book for all of the

I had to read this book for Econ for school and I learnt a lot. It teaches you the basic ideas of economics but it definitely is only the basics and I feel as though I need to read/research a lot more in order to understand some of the topics. It is a good started book for any teen who is interested in making money and minus all the cheesey jokes they make, it really got me motivated to start investing.

This is my first Motley Fool book, and I am super impressed. Written in a conversational tone and with minimum jargon, any layman will be able to learn and understand this financial book. This book reveals the magic of the stock market and has truly made an impact on my financial decisions and plans.

A pretty good book for teens in money and investing. They tried a bit too hard to speak 'teen-speak' but for the most part the information was clear, easy to understand, and simple to put into pratice.

Fantastic book in the sense that its had a large impact on my financial strategy for the rest of my life. I have not taken their instructions into my daily life due to my wariness with the stock market, but I have not forgotten any of their advice.
