This review is from: Wow The Dow!: The Complete Guide To Teaching Your Kids How To Invest In The Stock Market (Paperback)
"Wow The Dow" is an easy to read book geared toward showing parents and children how incredibly easy it is to invest in the stock market. Not only will this book strengthen your parent child bond but you will be amazed at how easy it is to invest in the stock market. Inside there are easy to read graphs, games, puzzles and too many other neat little side bars to mention. The side bars themselves make great reading.
The best part about this book is that it teaches adults and children that you don't have to be Bill Gates to be an investor. In fact, you can begin your investment portfolio with less money than you spend buying this book.
Being a stock market novice myself, this book taught me how to identify companies, learn everything about the company and most important, how and where to buy their stock. It also stresses the importance of not using a full commission broker to do what you can easily do yourself for a fraction of the cost.
After reading this book, I find myself very hesitant about unwise spending. I now have a little voice in my head that is saying, "If I invest that $1.05 that I spend at WaWa for coffee, every morning, and I use that money to buy one share of EMC every 6-9 months, and the stock does a two for one split every Spring, how much is that coffee really costing me? "
I don't have any children, but I can only imagine where I would be today if my parents showed me how easy it is to start investing in the stock market when I was 10, 7 or even 4 years old. This book uses true life scenarios where one of the author's daughters invested two thousand dollars when she was a small child and now that money will more than cover her college education.
Do yourself a favor and read this book. Although this book is very new, it won't be long before it's on every coffee table in America.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow The Dow! The Complete Guide To Teaching Your Kids How to, Oct. 30 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Wow The Dow!: The Complete Guide To Teaching Your Kids How To Invest In The Stock Market (Paperback)
This is the type of book I wish I had when I first became interested in investing. It is so elementary that I can actually understand what the stock market is all about, and how I personally can benefit from getting myself educated about investing. What's more my teenage daughter is learning about investing and investment clubs and students from her class are getting together weekly to talk about the stock market, using this book as a guide. This is a wonderful book to introduce kids and teenagers to investing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great book for kids and adults alike!, Nov. 29 2000
This review is from: Wow The Dow!: The Complete Guide To Teaching Your Kids How To Invest In The Stock Market (Paperback)
This is one of the easiest to read and understadn investment books I've ever found. Teaching children the value of long-term investment and money is a wonderful gift to give anyone. Adults will find the clear explanations, sound advice, and tips on getting started no matter how much you have to be valuable as well.
This and Jason Kelly's "Neatest Little Guide..." series are my favorite introductory investment books.

This review is from: Wow The Dow!: The Complete Guide To Teaching Your Kids How To Invest In The Stock Market (Paperback)
I found this book to be extremely helpful in decoding a very intimidating topic. The forum in which the book was layed out made for an easy and exciting read. I finally feel comfortable and adept to invest, in addition to having various resources for doing research. I highly recommend this book and have bought several copies for friends and family with and without children.
