"A child who masters the fundamentals of entrepreneurship sets the foundation for his success; a community that fosters this education exponentially increases prosperity, freedom and peace for all." The Future Business Leaders' Series(TM) is a set of fun and fiction adventure books that introduce pre-teens to the concepts of business and entrepreneurship. The message crosses all geographic, gender, racial and socioeconomic lines by empowering kids to reach for their dreams while learning real life lessons. The lessons covered in the series can make all the difference in a kid's future: the importance of dreaming big, protecting an idea, fighting doubts, building self-esteem, hiring the right people, finding the right real estate, listening to customers, branding, knowing the competition, networking, and achieving success. Tyler's peers are other children of the city of Nessibus with various skills and talents whose stories of becoming business leaders are told in separate books. These stories make up the Future Business Leaders' Series(TM). The plots of the various books interweave as the characters become suppliers, customers, and referrals for one another, emphasizing the power of networking and its influence over one's business success. "Bouani brilliantly takes a potentially dry subject as entrepreneurship and communicates its basic principles in a fun and entertaining way. As the founder of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship and one of the leading experts on youth entrepreneurship education, I know how complicated this subject can be for children. Unlike many financial or business books written for children, this one approaches kids at their level with an engaging story and plenty of mystery & suspense. She actually gets kids excited about becoming entrepreneurs themselves, and that's an amazing accomplishment. In addition, it is a wonderful introduction to free-market capitalism. It should be a part of American school curricula and every family's library, because it sets the basic foundation that every kid needs to build a successful future." Steve Mariotti Founder of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) "As an organization that focuses on teaching young people about entrepreneurship, parents frequently ask us for additional resources they can use at home. Tyler & His Solve-a-Matic Machine is an easy, fun way for parents to spark and foster children's entrepreneurial spirit. Children relate to the engaging characters and understand that they too can make their dreams into reality." Jack Harris President, Junior Achievement of Georgia "Tyler and His Solve-a-matic Machine" is an enjoyable adventure study that aims to introduce children to some of the basic concepts of capitalism. The book is well-written and deserves a wide audience." David Gordon Fellow, Van Mises Institute "Jennifer very elegantly builds on the theme "entrepreneurs are the best at making their dreams come true," and takes young readers on delightful and entertaining journey through the challenges, rewards and perils of entrepreneurship. I have learned from my own experience, and through my research, that entrepreneurs can be made - it is simply a matter of education and motivation. This book provides both the education and motivation to children." Vivek Wadhwa Columnist for BusinessWeek.com Fellow with the Labor and Worklife Program at Harvard Law School and executive in residence/adjunct professor at the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University Visiting scholar at University of California at Berkeley "Entrepreneurship is the backbone of our economy, yet entrepreneurship is not a subject kids are actively taught. That is what makes Bouani's series so important. She is teaching kids about an important concept and delivers valuable lessons in a fun and engaging way. The series prepares kids for the changing economy and gets them excited about entrepreneurship." Natalie MacNeil Founder of SheTa
