Reviews

Gr 7 Up-Aimed at the teens who have little or no knowledge about personal money management, this easily understood audio presentation gives listeners a great overview of how to keep out of debt and save and invest their money. In this abridgement their book, authors David and Tom Gardner, founders of the popular newspaper column and Web site and narrators of this audiobook, advise teenagers to invest in the stock market for the long term and explain how to do it using different investment tools. They also talk about having real expectations based on goals and research. An eight-step program of learning how to make money by investing money is the core of the presentation. The production is often humorous, and the authors never talk down to listeners. Real teens also tell about their personal experiences. Listeners are encouraged to stop the tape to work on setting goals and find out how much those goals will cost. The sections are short, so teachers could use this as a good introduction to the different topics of compounding interest, mutual funds, budgeting, IRAs, college saving plans, and being an informed consumer. Parents will find this a good tool for introducing basic money management and savings concepts. This program will generate a lot of interest and will circulate well.-Ann West LaPrise, Huron School District, New Boston MI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Wired Cool. Actually, quite hip....The Gardners set out to do something different in the investment world: have some fun while making a wad of money.
