Does anyone know any good Investment 101 type books.  I have a client whose 17 y/o son is interested in learning about the market...I appreciate any good book titles.



Thanks

Thanks...but i'm not really looking for history....more about investing.  I think history would be good...but this kid probably won't even open the book.

Stocks For The Long Run - Jeremy Siegel (There's no way he's reading this one.  It's about as thick as the dictionary).

 
Why don't you just give him some American Fund brochures.....

Point & Figure Charting- Thomas Dorsey

 
That will strain his brain.

Not sure where I'd find them....American Funds....are they any good?  Never really heard of them.

Give him what every self-proclaimed capitalist has never read, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations.

Thanks...that is what I just did...told him to buy "Learn to Earn"...I'm just keeping in mind that the kid is 17 y/o...also told him some of the "For Dummies" books may be ok...but I pushed Lynch...thanks!

Suze Orman, The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke

or Suze Orman's Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, & Broke

At 17, a basic book that he can understand the terminology, and some decent examples to help him along, I would suggest David Chilton's, The Wealthy Barber. It is not going to make him a FA, but it will explain many different aspects of personal financial planning.
