There seem to be a lot of positive reviews of this book, so there are certainly aspects about it that must be good - but in my personal opinion I didn't like it. This book reads as if the authors assumed I am two things that I'm not: rich and stupid. A lot of the wordy paragraphs seem to be filler information, over-explaining points that I understood 10 minutes of reading back. I think this might be intentional, so the book isn't shooting facts at you like an adult financial book might read, but for me it was just annoying. And at the end of the book, it never really tied it all together...you won't really know how to start investing even if you've read it cover-to-cover. And, on a side note, some of the examples rather annoyed me...describing teens who "scrimp and save" to put away $5,000 per year for retirement...let's be real! I'm sure some teens have that to put away every year, but it's not from diligently saving what they earn, it's from their parents. Also, this book simply ignores the one huge financial problem all teens have - college! I could not believe that this book goes on without even mentioning the best ways to save for college. They do list example after example of what John or Jane will have saved up by the time of their retirement (if they "scrimp and save" $5,000 a year now - rrgh). I think for most teens, it's unrealistic to have all your money stashed in an account worth thousands that you won't touch until retirement. Not saying it's too early to start thinking beyond college, but college is really the primary issue.

I think this book might be good for 12- or 13-year olds who would appreciate the reiteration and a style of book that's aimed more for children than adults. I'm 17, so I think some older teens might be bored with the tone and wordiness of the book, I'd just go for an adult one. Gosh, this was a long review..sorry! Good luck with investing, everyone!

A bit dated (it mentions fax machines & floppy disks) but otherwise timeless info. The first part of the book really hammers home the idea that by starting to save & invest at a young age, you have such a huge head start that you're going to end up in a good place almost no matter what. SO get started!

PROS: I like that this book empasized goal setting and sound personal finance principles as much as actual investing. The recommendation to use index funds is still sound advice.

CONS: Because it was published in 2002, many of the specific examples are woefully outdated. Some companies don't exist, and whole industries are dying. Also more information on things like UGMA and UTMA along with products like ETFs would be helpful. In their effort to be "teen friendly" the authors sounded very odd most of the time.

Great book for young investors! The authors use modern day examples that teens can relate too. They also give advice about long term success. I read it first to make sure it was appropriate...I wish I was given this book as a teen!

Did not know it was this old a publication. Missing all the new investment products now being offered.

The advice in this book is excellent; really well done. My only criticism is that the book itself LOOKS so boring. Considering that the target audience is teenagers who are accustomed to a full assault of all of their senses, this book is very visually boring. Not a single graph or chart which I find very odd in a financial book. Not a single splash of color. Even the pages are the rough kind found in $2 romance novels. In summation, GREAT ADVICE but the lack of color and "wow factor" may turn off a teenager.

Good book but it did not come with instructions on how to get your kid to read it
highly recommend this book to those of you who are in high school or before, im currently in college right now and had i read this book and made the time and investment into learning and attaining the insightful information this book has to give, i probably could of saved a whole lot of money in high school and into college. there are a lot of young americans out there who just dont "know" (whether its because their parents didnt have the time or knowledge to properly show their kids) on how to save and spend wisely. this book puts into perspective a very important life skill many individuals must have, in order to be financially savvy growing up. anyways if your a rookie at banks and money savings i highly recommend this book.
