5.0 out of 5 stars This Book is Definitely NOT for the Idiot!, March 20, 2001

This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Money for Teens (Paperback)
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Money for Teens by Susan Shelly is a book for people who want to take control of their money. It presents information on topics such as why money is so important in our society, how one can go about earning money, and other topics such as budgeting, debt and investing. The author provides concrete information that is beneficial for any teen who wants to become familiar with the basics of financial management. Shelly writes on the level of a teen-ager, short and to the point. She leaves out the extra, useless information that would cause narcolepsy in most of today's teenaged population. Shelly goes into detail about how to "make your money work for you." She talks about the benefits and disadvantages of different types of savings accounts, checking accounts, and money market accounts. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Money for Teens is a great book for anybody who wants to be more financially savvy. The essential information it provides will send any teen on his or her way to a financially successful future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for every teen, July 10, 2008
This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Money for Teens (Paperback)
Almost everyday I meet an adult who is having problems controlling their money. (They make mistakes like using credit cards to purchase items they can't afford or they don't really need.) This book gives teens practical information about how to control their money before their spending gets out of control. This information is crucial for teens to learn while they are young because sadly one of the major causes of divorce is one or both spouses not being able to control money. This is the required book for the Personal Finances course of Teen U.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can give a teen a good book, but you can't make them read/follow the advice., February 9, 2010

This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Money for Teens (Paperback)
Saw the book in a bookstore. It was very well organized and had lots of good information. Sent it to a teen whose family has minimal money management skills. Teen lives over 500 miles away. I don't think it was read. Real shame, because it has so much helpful information. Moral - be sure the recipient is ready to learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard facts, not so scary, May 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Money for Teens (Paperback)
I've read the first 4 chapters of this book which I've purchased for my about-to-me
high school grad granddaughter. Wish I'd had this info much sooner in life. It is
honest and presented in an easy-to-read fashion with language a teen can relate to.
Fingers crossed.
