The Motley Fool has made investing fun and easy for millions of people. Now, it custom designs its wit and wisdom for today's money-savvy teens. The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens helps teens stand out from the ho-hum mutual-fund crowd, build a portfolio of stocks they can actually care about, and take advantage of the investor's best friend — time — to watch their profits multiply.
The Fool shows you how to question authority when it comes to managing your money; save cash (for investing, for college... and, yes, even for having fun!); dodge the spending and saving pitfalls that trap so many adults; get started investing — online and off — with just a few dollars; and discover up-and-coming businesses that could become future blue chips. The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens shows young investors the way to financial freedom.
"In eight teen-friendly sections, the brothers Gardner and writing partner Selena Maranjian demystify the stock market by describing and defining mutual funds, banking practices, IRAs, and drip investing. The authors also include numerous quotes from money-savvy adolescents who detail some of their rookie market moves in an attempt to help their peers steer clear of similar mistakes. Parents will approve of the strongly worded sections on credit card debt and the costly financial and physical tolls a smoking habit takes on both wallet and health." — Jennifer Hubert, Amazon.com Reviews
