Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
TeenVestor is a valuable asset to public, personal, and both middle and high school libraries. The complexities of the investment world are simply explained using illustrations from common experience. References to the Teenvestor Web site are included throughout the book for further information. An extensive index can be found at the back of the book along with listings of the Teenvestor Top Ten Web sites for further investment education, investment research, and current company information, as well as recommended online brokers. The tone of this book is encouraging and beginner friendly. The authors bring their professional backgrounds from banking, investment, and law to this comprehensible yet comprehensive guide to investment. Teens contemplating investing can find explanations of common investment terms and how certain factors affect the economy and the stock market. Discussions on mutual funds, stock evaluations, and accounting practices are also among the many areas covered. Separate introductions, one for teenagers and one for their parents, begin this guide. Though targeting teenagers, a chapter on tax-friendly investments and another on helping teens to manage their money are offered for parents. KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2001, Penguin Putnam, Perigee, 300p. index.,

VOYA
This practical, detailed tutorial for teenagers and their parents defines and illustrates terms, gives down-to-earth advice, and recommends additional sources for learning how to manage money and assess investments. Three chapters speak directly to parents about financial education, money management, and taxes. Discussions of balance sheets, income statements, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, brokers, and legal issues target the beginning investor as well as the advanced TeenVestor, described as being at least fifteen years old and investing for two years or more. Early chapters provide language for parents and teenagers to use when discussing money and require the parents to be positive examples. Expenses—payments to others—are designated as discretionary and nondiscretionary. Savings and investments—payments to oneself—are classified short term and long term. Additional investment information and answers to chapter assignments appear on the authors' Web site (http://www.teenvestor.com), but the reader does not have to access the Internet to answer most of the questions or benefit from the print information. This book is a text or reference, not a read-through. Applying just the program proposed in the opening chapters could take several months and requires a long-term commitment. Although lacking the personal profiles, witty style, and career information of Janet Bamford's Street Wise: A Guide for Teen Investors (Bloomberg Press, 2000), Modu and Walker establish daily money management and investing as a serious and worthwhile issue for entire families unfamiliar with building personal wealth. Index. Charts. Further Reading.
