From the personal-finance duo "Fortune" magazine called "funny, smart, cynical, opinionated" comes savvy financial advice for today's street-smart young investors.

The Motley Fool has made investing fun and easy for millions of people. Now, it custom designs its wit and wisdom for today's money-savvy teens.

"The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens" helps teens stand out from the ho-hum mutual-fund crowd, build a portfolio of stocks they can actually care about, and take advantage of the investor's best friend -- time -- to watch their profits multiply.

  • Strike a blow for financial independence. The Fool shows you how to:

  • Question authority when it comes to managing your money

  • Save cash (for investing, for college...and, yes, even for having fun )

  • Dodge the spending and saving pitfalls that trap so many adults

  • Get started investing -- online and off -- with just a few dollars

  • Discover up-and-coming businesses that could become future blue chips

    Warning: this is not your parents' money guide From identifying companies that are both cool and profitable to building a portfolio that makes tracking investments exciting, "The Motley Fool Investment Guide for Teens" shows young investors the way to financial freedom.

  • Wired Cool. Actually, quite hip....The Gardners set out to do something different in the investment world: have some fun while making a wad of money.
