    should be required high school and college reading

    Eight years ago Missy Kitt of Backhoe, Nebraska entered the offices of investment banking firm Caboodle & Company seeking employment at a time when the company had just lost all eight of their stock brokers to a national corporation. President Caboodle, better known as Mr. C, needed someone to sell stocks and bonds or as renaissance assistant Caroline Crane puts it to work, so they hire her. Kitt is trained, studied hard, and soon became an accomplished broker so much so the company today is called Kitt & Caboodle. --- This delightful tale of how to succeed in investing with trying is a terrific tale that uses the story of Missy Kitt to teach readers everything they wanted to know about investment planning but was afraid to ask because the answer might be as confusing as an index. Her tale educates the audience in a fun simple manner as students learn investment 101 and 102 to include what is out such as the types of advisers, comprehending financial data, and diverse portfolios including estate and retirement plans. Susan Laubach has written a wonderful winner that should be required high school and college reading. --- Harriet Klausner
