Great information, not just for our kids but for making wise financial investments for ourselves too. It's not about saving money, it's not about how to send your money but just focuses on investing; which is actually a pretty good place to start since the rest look after themselves (esp the spending). The only finance book I've read that broadly covers the basics of investing to the depth required. A no fuss, clear explanation of how to invest money and what to invest it in. Ormond's experience is broad enough to provide the information I've been after for years but have lacked the knowledge to ask the right questions. I wasn't going to read this book because it looked boring but it's an easy read and one I wish I'd read years ago.
