Essential reading for every teen July 10 2008
By James Wegert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Almost everyday I meet an adult who is having problems controlling their money. (They make mistakes like using credit cards to purchase items they can't afford or they don't really need.) This book gives teens practical information about how to control their money before their spending gets out of control. This information is crucial for teens to learn while they are young because sadly one of the major causes of divorce is one or both spouses not being able to control money. This is the required book for the Personal Finances course of Teen U.

You can give a teen a good book, but you can't make them read/follow the advice. Feb. 9 2010
By R & the triplet's Grandma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Saw the book in a bookstore. It was very well organized and had lots of good information. Sent it to a teen whose family has minimal money management skills. Teen lives over 500 miles away. I don't think it was read. Real shame, because it has so much helpful information. Moral - be sure the recipient is ready to learn.
