This is not a book full of financial advice, nor is it a long tome of dry accounting rules. Instead, this book lays a foundation for financial education. Although the structure is patterned after a children's ABC book, the topics covered are appropriate for readers in their early teens up through adulthood. From Assets to Zero-Coupon Bonds, this quick intro to financial terms will not only get you up to speed on some basics, but it will also pave the way for continued learning.
The more you understand money and its role in your life, the more control you will have over your future. When it comes to money matters, what you don't know really can hurt you. This book is a solid step toward a more complete understanding of this important part of our lives.
This book previously sold at a higher price but the price was reduced to try to encourage more financial education. The author also makes this book free to students in the United States in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade, via a download through his Web site. Parents and teachers may download the book on behalf of their students.
