High School Money Book

By Don Silver

There should be a class in high school called "Money Smarts 101" to teach teens how to handle money. That's the purpose of this book. Spend just 10 minutes a day reading the High School Money Book and learn how to make important decisions about shopping, paying for college, saving, investing and working. You can be happier and more self-sufficient if you master money matters now rather than correct money mistakes later.

"Don Silver has added another gem to his collection with the High School Money Book, probably the most cogent guide to financial responsibility available to teens. Its easy-to-understand financial lessons will excite teens about using money responsibly and get them thinking about saving and budgeting as they learn the vital fundamentals of debt, insurance, taxes and investing. I will use these methods when teaching urban youth the skills of financial responsibility in my own mentoring."
