The author offers parents a three-hour crash course in raising money-smart kids with a book full of tips--from how to handle money to how to find that first job. It's all sound advice, but Pearl's monotone reading makes this no-nonsense guide to kids' finance a little dull. Quoting experts and sharing personal anecdotes fail to enliven an otherwise bland presentation. Pearl presents so much information in this abridged version that the listener may want to hear short segments to fully absorb all the useful material. In small doses, Pearl's reading is informative, rather than tedious. (The tape package includes a booklet of money-smart tips and a bibliography for further reading.)
