Traditionally, teens have been known for having a hard time seeing the proverbial Big Picture. But the Gardners respond admirably to this characteristic, by constantly emphasizing the fortune teens can make in the future by investing now and reminding them that investing money is the least labor-intensive way to make more of the desirable green stuff. A perfect gift for the burgeoning Warren Buffet in your life. (Ages 12 and older) --Jennifer Hubert

I think this book might be good for 12- or 13-year olds who would appreciate the reiteration and a style of book that's aimed more for children than adults. I'm 17, so I think some older teens might be bored with the tone and wordiness of the book, I'd just go for an adult one. Gosh, this was a long review..sorry! Good luck with investing, everyone!
I wish I had been taught the discipline for the first two items as it wasn't until age 40 that I reached financial freedom. Fortunately for him, he is a believer after reading this book. Maybe along the way he will guide others in the right direction.
I was looking for a book that will guide me on how to invest (I still have no idea even after reading this book) and this book barely provided any information; bottom of the line, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this book to anyone older than 16 but if you have a young middle-schooled relative that has absolutely no clue about how to save money, then this book might help them a little.
This book goes far beyond that in the Motley Fool tradition. It will give anyone, teen or adult, an excellent overview of what they can do to start investing. It covers many different ideas for getting started and goes in-depth into what you can do to jump right into doing it.
I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about starting to invest and looking to get REAL information on what they can do to get started. If your sick of the kiddie stuff that is written on how to get started, then this book is exactly what you have been looking for.
