Review

In "Our Best Tomorrow," Rob and Lauren teach principles which, at times, have been overlooked in public school curricula. The book reminds our youth that in America, with hard work, education, and freedom we can achieve anything. It encourages critical thought about our businesses and government, contributing to a student's solid foundation for life. --Chris McDaniel, Kentucky Senator, President and Owner, McD Concrete

Written by my 14-year old son, Yiannis:

This is a story about three friends; Adelaide, Isabella and Jake. They all originate from different places but the meet up in California and become best friends. All of them are looking to become successful in their lives. The go to University and they start having their own companies. Adelaide becomes a fashion designer, Isabella manufactures glass and Jake creates new software for computers and eventually starts making his own. They all meet up in Kentucky (they have stores of their franchise there). Isabella wants to make the world better so she campaigns for Kentucky President. She is elected and makes Kentucky a better place. Wanting to do even more good she runs for US President. Her rival has more socialist ideas while she has capitalistic ideas. In the end Isabella and Jake get married, Isabella wins the elections, Adelaide’s clothes become known worldwide and they all live happily ever after.

At the end of nearly every chapter this books says how the story is connected to capitalism. Capitalism is simple and everyone should be able to understand it so this book tries to make people get it. Capitalism says that when things are done to encourage businesses to grow there are more and better jobs available. When a large amount of restrictions are placed on businesses then the product and service cost is increased and they probably will not do as well. It is important to stand up for what is right. If somebody opposes a new rule that sound good but in truth might hurt businesses then they should stand up against it even if they get criticized because it is for the greater good.

Education is the key to running a successful business.

The 5-star rating is deserved for 2 reasons: #1) The premise that the book will teach free-market capitalist principles to the youth of America (any many uninformed adults) is fulfilled. #2) The majority of the text was written by a 13 year old girl. The story is interesting and well written and allows youngsters to relate the lessons to real-life circumstances. The prose is good enough to beg the question, "Will she be writing a full-length novel in the near future?"

Capitalism is the best system ever invented to give the most people the best chance to decide on their own live course. Schools are teaching children socialism - a system which has failed every time it has been tried. It is wonderful to see a young person get what really works and passes that on.

I think every person should read this book, not just the young people of America. There needs to be discussion groups too.
