I gave this book as a gift to my daughter (a college sophomore). She comments that the book is an easy read and understandable in terms of breaking down the options of investing. For those teens and young adults who have learned little about the world of finance and investing, this is a must read!

Not the first words that come to my mind with a finance book but this one was a simple, fast read. It was also the first money guide I was actually able to finish, not to mention understand and apply to my life.
