Very good. Grade 6 UpKiyosaki, a bestselling author for adults, has specifically targeted teens in his attempt to promote his philosophy. What makes this book unique is his approach to how he thinks about accumulating wealth and about having money work for the earner. "Poor Dad" accepts the notion that he will never be rich and thinks that "money doesn't matter." "Rich Dad" thinks that "money is power." Teens are encouraged to be creative in developing ways to earn cash and to limit spending. A chapter on identifying individual strengths and learning styles while developing a financial IQ on the path to financial freedom is a lesson for any age. Sidebars and quizzes promote individual ideas and concepts. Teens will be attracted by the notion of playing games to learn more about acquiring assets and managing money. The glossary clearly explains financial terms. An entertaining and informative book. Finanzen Aktien Börse Stocks Financial Freedom Wall-Street Futures Optionen Spreads Zertifikate.
This book has inspired my 15 year old to start her own business. The original Rich Dad, Poor Dad was very difficult for my dyslexic child to keep her focus on and feel like she was making any progress.
The teen version is much easier for her to understand and has contributed to her excitement and her ability to achieve her goals.
No question: Give the gift of the future to your teen and give them Rich Dad, Poor Dad for teens!

Not worth it
This is a mini book. Meaning it fits in your pocket. It's not a chapter book filled with any real details. Very disappointed.

A definite recommendation!
I read this book and then used it to support the economics curriculum in my alternative high school classroom. The concepts are sound and easily understood by teens. Written in a way that young people enjoy.
Publishers Weekly, 2004-08-02 Teenage capitalists may want to cash in on Rich Dad, Poor Dad for Teens: The Secrets About Money That You Don't Learn in School! by Robert Kiyosaki, with Sharon Lechter. Pitching the ideas from his adult bestseller Rich Dad, Poor Dad to a younger crowd, Kiyosaki recounts his youth and explains the origins of the book's title by contrasting his own "poor" father with his best friend's entrepreneurial "rich" father. "My dad seemed comfortable with his decision to be a `have-not,' but I knew that I wasn't." Kiyosaki encourages teenagers to analyze their learning style, offers moneymaking ideas and describes debt-related pitfalls. (Aug.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
