Well-written propaganda for TMF products, but worthwhile because of the nice strategy for selecting small cap growth stocks.

The somewhat cheeky style is a trademark of their writing in my limited experience, but at book-length, it gets a bit old. Decent Cliff's Notes on reading balance/cashflow sheets, a handful of targets for ratios, but the first 1/4 (1/3?) is basically, "Don't get overcharged for mutual funds and brokerage fees," which... well, I guess must have an audience.

2.5 stars rounded up.

A pretty good book for teens in money and investing. They tried a bit too hard to speak 'teen-speak' but for the most part the information was clear, easy to understand, and simple to put into pratice.

This book blows. I made it through the rule breakers section and couldn't continue. I'm prepare to believe that the Fools have written better books for the novice investor, but this one wasn't it. The investment philosophy they espouse seems to be "invest in companies which will make a lot of money". Alright. Thanks for the tip, guys.
