From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up—A multifaceted discussion of money management. The book discusses savings institutions, interest rates, and public debt, and provides perspectives regarding one's credit history. It explains the differences, advantages, disadvantages, and problems associated with "plastic." It also illustrates how small payments keep you in debt, how you can protect yourself from fraud, and what to do if you lose your cards. Basically, the book covers any aspect of finance that would help teens develop an understanding of credit, debt, and savings and how each of these vehicles can be used beneficially and the trouble caused when they are abused. The book is clearly written at a level teens will understand. Sidebars and highlighted boxes throughout provide concrete explanations of concepts and give excellent financial guidance. Students will learn the difference between buying a car and leasing it, how costly a simple late payment can be, and that they have rights as a consumer of financial services. This is a valuable resource that will give teens a much-needed advantage in an increasingly confusing and competitive economy.—Joanne K. Cecere, Monroe-Woodbury High School, Central Valley, NY

From Booklist:

From the Teen Finance series, this hefty volume brings together dozens of informative, previously published articles related to money and the economy; credit and debit cards; predatory lending practices; and problems related to debt. Some of the chapters, such as “Signs of Compulsive Debting” and “Understanding Vehicle Financing,” are clearly useful, while others, such as “What Determines Interest Rates,” will mainly interest economics students and investors. An excellent list of books and Web sites closes this thorough volume, the content of which is written at a fairly high reading level and is primarily drawn from publications of government agencies. Grades 10-12. --Carolyn Phelan
