After reading a book like this I'm really interested in saving up money to begin my own investment ventures with the help of others in order to get an early start.

Patrick Lyons could easily have titled his book, "Everything You Wanted to Know about Finances But..." Though that phrase might now be overused, it nevertheless would tell you what Map Your Financial Future: Starting the Right Path in Your Teens and Twenties provides for all individuals who are fortunate enough to have a copy of this book placed in their hands!

I have never seen a book on this subject as comprehensive and complete. The presentation of the material is outstanding. The topic has been both well researched and reviewed by appropriate leaders in respective fields of the financial world. And, yet, the author has succeeded in ensuring that all information is interesting, easy-to-use, educational, and of great benefit to not only young people but to those of us, like myself, who have always been just a little intimidated by the whole business of making money beyond a basic salary.

Lyons quite simply begins at the beginning! He highlights that it is in the teen years when individuals start to think much more about money--money for clothes, money for the prom, transportation, etc. At the same time, he begins to explain the consequences of money management, explaining that splurging on $200 jeans will quickly leave you short of cash for other essentials or emergencies.

Willingly sharing from experience, Lyons explains how he got caught in the credit card trap very early--in high school! Everyone sooner or later experiences that thrill of being able to place a small plastic card down on the counter and buy something that they really want. Too soon that thrill is gone if that high school student must face his adult life already in debt!
