'We believe that through economic empowerment, you give people choices in their lives.'

John Bryant grew up in South Central Los Angeles, and while he's founded his own group of companies and been named one of Time's "50 Most Promising Leaders of the Future," he knows what it means to struggle financially. Now, as founder and chairman of Operation HOPE, Bryant focuses on educating young people about money. His Banking on Our Future program has already reached 87,000 students in over 350 schools nationwide, and the number is climbing.

Now you too can have access to the lessons of the award-winning Banking on Our Future program. Here are some of the important things you will learn from this book:
* How to talk with your kids about money
* How to keep track of your family's money with a family financial ledger
* How to teach your ten-year-old about banks and have fun at the same time
* Why saving, even a little money every week week, is so important
* When it's the right time for your teen to have a checking account
* How to set financial goals with your kids, whether they're six or sixteen
* Credit, budgeting, investing, car payments, and more

Banking on Our Future is the financial primer you and your family can't afford to be without. Clear, frank, and always inspiring, this book will help you and your children plan a healthier and happier financial future.

About the Author:

John Bryant is founder, chairman, and CEO of Operation HOPE. He lives in Los Angeles. Michael Levin is a motivational speaker and the author of thirteen books. He has written for The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, and other publications.

From Library Journal:

As "a crash course in the fundamentals of economic literacy" that will "equip you with the key information you need to teach your children to manage their money wisely," this slim tome is nobly intended and passionate. Unfortunately, it is so basic that its usefulness is limited. Bryant continually stresses that parents must be models of positive and stable personal finance, a lesson that quickly becomes repetitive and didactic. "Being of good character includes being responsible about money," he chastises; "money is a tool, and not the key to happiness." Illustrations of unwise choices are frequently dramatized, e.g., "Buying brand-name items is an inner-city addiction and it's become almost as costly as heroin." Constant references to the Bryant-founded nonprofit Operation Hope, dedicated to financial education, distract and annoy. Libraries will reach broader audiences with Marjolijn Bijlefeld and Sharon K. Zoumbaris's Teen Guide to Personal Financial Management or Willard Stawski II's Kids, Parents & Money. This is an important purchase wherever Bryant has name recognition (and thus, perhaps, the trust of his readers). Otherwise, order on demand. Douglas C. Lord, Connecticut State Lib., Hartford
