Good investing book for teens
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…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.....

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!
Get him the Peter Lynch books.
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.
I wouldn't give him a suzy orman book unless he needed something useless to wipe his butt with!!!!!
or Suze Orman’s Money Book for the Young, Fabulous, & Broke
