Editorial Reviews


"The Missing Semester is a must read for any college student close to graduation. This accessible book is the central text in our financial literacy program at Allegheny College."   

    Chris Allison
    Board of Trustees
    Allegheny College

"As an educator, I could not have found a better book than The Missing Semester for teaching personal finance. The book takes often boring and complicated information and makes it applicable and accessible to high school students."

    Joel Thompson
    Upper St. Clair School District 

"The Missing Semester should be required reading for all undergraduate college students."   

    Jay Sukits
    University of Pittsburgh

"The Missing Semester is a rarephenomenon--a book that is genuinely intended as a public service.  Itsucceeds tremendously well in that regard.  Finding simple andstraightforward answers to complex questions is a real art form andthese authors have mastered it."
    David McInally, President
    Coe College

"The Missing Semester
is a must-read for the college students, recent graduates and other young adults in your life.  The book does an excellent job of crystallizing the issues facing young adults that so often cause problems in their financial lives for years to come, and does so in a way that is digestible and easy to understand.  There should be no excuses for not reading it!"

    Greg McBride, CFA
    Senior Vice President

"After reading The Missing Semester, I found it to be exceptional. Many times authors forget to speak to their target audience and provide the product they think they need to produce. Matt and Gene have done a great job of "talking" to the students in their own language and have made the book a useful, usable tool for students by making it short and sweet."

    Karen Richel
    University of Idaho Ext.

"The­­ Missing Semester gives young adults the facts on how to manage and take ownership of their finances.  This book is a gift every graduating student should receive."

    Richard A. Dioli
    Director of Schools
    Sacred Heart Schools
    Atherton, CA

"High schools students lack fundamental financial literacy skills and polls show they are increasingly unsure about their financial future.Organizations like ours provide meaningful programs to teach practical money skills and we regularly use The Missing Semester to enrich learning so students can become confident when it comes to managing money.  If I'm a parent or teacher, I'm telling, not asking 'read this book'."

    Dennis Gilfoyle
    Executive Director
    Junior Achievement of Pittsburgh

"High School teachers received copies of The Missing Semester at our annual Money POWER Conference for Financial Literacy.  Many had already heard about the book and were very excited to take it back to their schools and use it to support their personal finance instruction. At W!SE, we work every day to help high school teachers improve the financial literacy of their students.  The Missing Semester teaches important money basics that supports their efforts"

    Dave Anderson
    Executive Vice President
    Working In Support of Education (W!SE)

From the Author

Money 101, it is "The Missing Semester" in far toomany of our nation's schools and homes.  We have had the privilege and pleasure to work with a growing number of organizations, high school and college students in the area loosely defined as financial literacy.  The enthusiasm with which this topic is being embraced is staggering.  Think about it:  every school (high school, college, trade) will have it's share of doctors, electricians, engineers, mechanics and dropouts.  100% will make decisions about money.  

The consequences of early financial decisions can be far-reaching, perhaps permanent.  While we are grateful for the programs that have implemented The Missing Semester, getting the concepts introduced to the widest audience is far more important.  Getting the concepts recognized as essential, and incorporated broadly into the educational system, have been goals since our efforts began.  This book is one tool, there are other good ones out there. 

Gene & Matt
