For High Schoolers
Excellent read for beginners of finance
informative, robotic, cohesive
some concepts which are powerful, such as the case studies of people beginning to save at different ages. Nothing in the book truly stands tall as the most memorable though.
The performance i thought was the books weakest point. The reader telegraphed the fact that he was clearly just reading from the pages and missed an opportunity to draw in the listener by adding more emotion into his voice. Although there were times that were better than others, there were many times i felt like i was hearing a robot read.
i wouldn't. This is not the kind of book you make a film out of.
Definitely a good read for anyone who wants to learn how to improve their financial future. Wagner elaborates on every concept you need to know to fully understand the basics of how you should manage your money for a secure future. Some sections such as the one where we get definitions about what debit and credit cards were seemed long and boring. Other sections, such as the one on mutual funds, were well worth listening to. give this book a shot.
