    June 1, 2007
    Gr 9 Up -The successor toThe Generation Y Money Book (Adams-Hall, 2000), this practical guide is designed to teach teens about earning, saving, and investing money. It is divided into 12 sections and contains 101 smart ways to handle finances. Silver offers advice on current practices (needs versus wants), as well as money-smart tips for the future (buying a home, wills and trusts, etc.). Tracking and logging all expenses for a month and shopping with a budget may be a new concept for many teens. Saving for college and 529 plans may be a little late for the intended audience, but there is a section on repaying college debt that will be helpful. This is a good companion to Janet Bamford'sStreet Wise: A Guide for Teen Investors (Bloomberg, 2000) and Timothy Olsen'sThe Teenage Investor (McGraw-Hill, 2003).Kathleen A. Nester, Downingtown High Ninth Grade Center, PA

  • Bill Uffelman, President and CEO, Nevada Bankers Association "The High School Money Book is a must read for every student BEFORE they graduate -- their parents should read it too!"
  • Douglas Haskell, Director of Professional Development, Economics Center for Education & Research, University of Cincinnati "The book has an amazing number of very practical bits of advice for high school students and anyone else who is overwhelmed by the number of personal financial decisions they make everyday."
  • Alan Lavine and Gail Liberman, syndicated columnists and authors of Quick Steps To Financial Stability "Great book to teach teens about money. It goes one step further than other books. It teaches kids to really think about money and how it affects their lives."
  • Teresa McUsic, Savvy Consumer columnist, Fort Worth Star-Telegram "I was reading a book that landed on my desk recently -- High School Money Book by Don Silver -- as we drove to my parents' house in Oklahoma, when my eldest son asked to take a look. "He didn't put it down for the next three hours of the trip, devouring the book as if he were reading one of his thick fantasy tomes like Lord of the Rings."
  • Catherine A. Uberman, V.P. JPMorgan Chase Bank "This is a great tool teens can use to learn financial responsibility."
  • Tameria L. Vickerson, Ph.D. Director of Programs, Florida Council on Economic Education "Very comprehensive. The format is very practical and intuitive."
  • Kara McGuire, Minneapolis Star Tribune "From wants versus needs to paying for college, Don Silver's High School Money Book is a great place to start learning about money matters-- even for those who haven't stepped into the halls of a high school for decades."
  • Jim Walsh, Editor in Chief, Forefield Inc "The High School Money Book should be required reading for all high school students. Don has a knack for introducing and explaining financial concepts in a simple, story-like manner that draws in the reader. I've recommended many of Don's other books. The High School Money Book is the latest in a long series of quality works."
  • Dr. Paul B. Farrell, columnist, DowJones/MarketWatch.com "Don Silver has written the perfect road map, a must-read! Buy it today, read it, live it."
  • Midwest Book Review "A 'Money Smarts 101' for high school students. Enthusiastically recommended."
  • M. Arthur, Educator and Newsletter Editor "Everything in the High School Money Book by Don Silver is useful and well organized. It is also incredibly clear and presented in the most useful way that I can imagine. If someone has a question, they can just look in the index or table of contents and -presto- there's the answer without having to wade through all sorts of other info. There are references for several sections if you'd like more in-depth information. "Want to teach someone how to balance a checkbook? See page 90. What credit card should one get? See pages 50-52. Why is it critical to start saving for retirement at an early age? See page 108 for a very convincing set of scenarios and you may be surprised! What is money, anyway? See page 1. "The book arrived at the beginning of a complicated and busy week and I sighed when I saw it, wondering how I would ever find the time to read it, much less to write a review. I decided to just glance inside, to get a taste of what was waiting for me. To my amazement, I was so captivated that I sat and read the entire book right then! "Don is right, there should be a class for high school-aged kids called "Money Smarts 101." Maybe even adults should be required to take it!! But since most people don't have access to such a class, this book is the next-best thing. Everyone should have a copy of the High School Money Book on their bookshelf!"
