"[A]n expertly compiled guide for those students who are just becoming active participants in the economy. Serving a dual purpose as a practical financial training course and an education in economics, Money for Minors: A Student's Guide to Economics is a top pick for community library economics collections as well as high school (and college!) libraries."
Midwest Book Review
"…an informative, practical guide to economics for high school and community college students…The clear, concise writing and dictionary/lesson structure will appeal to new students who need an introduction to economics and to more advanced pupils looking for a quick definition or a more detailed explanation of an economic theory to supplement their course reading. Readers will come away impressed by the author's recognition that teens are an important – and growing – part of the United States' $13 trillion economy."
"This book is touted as a supplement for students in economics courses. When used in conjunction with a text, it would be extremely beneficial."
