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
