“Wonderful book. At once profound and amusing.” - John C. Bogle, founder and former CEO of Vanguard.

“You can't start too early to teach kids lifelong lessons of financial literacy while putting money in its proper place. Rob Pivnick has succeeded admirably presenting timeless lessons for saving, investing and much more, explained with clarity, humor, and grace. Kids and their parents could not find a better guide.- Burton G. Malkiel, author, A Random Walk down Wall Street

"Pivnick’s book is amazingly well written – all middle school and high school students should be taught the concepts that Pivnick lays out so nicely in this book. Beyond that, it actually should be read by all adults who are not fully comfortable with their savings and investing skills. Kudos to the author." - Gregg Fleisher, Chief Academic Officer, National Math + Science Initiative

“Ben Franklin wrote an ‘an investment in knowledge pays the best interest.’ The return to any high school kid from reading What All Kids Should Know About . . . Saving and Investing should be enormous. Pivnick makes an otherwise boring topic great fun and potentially genuinely life changing.- Paul Merriman, author and founder of Merriman Inc. advisory firm and The Merriman Financial Education Foundation

What All Kids... is a straightforward but entertaining book that covers all the basics your kids need to know about finances. Buy it for your kids so they can get their financial future started off on the right foot!” - Kirsten, TheFrugalGirl

If you want to improve your money management skills, with some great ideas on how you can improve your financial situation, this book is a great addition to your home library for adults and teens.” - Miranda Marquit, Financial Journalist and Money Expert, Planting Money Seeds

If you are a parent looking for a great book for your son or daughter, this book is it. A wonderful guide for beginners to the world of saving and investing, Pivnick’s book covers all the topics your children need to know with the right amount of detail, graphs and fun narratives to keep them interested.” - Barbara Friedberg, MBA, MS, author of How to Get Rich; Without Winning the Lottery

“Pivnick’s book has a lot of great things and important concepts that make it interesting for middle school, high school and millennials . . . it’s an excellent book for a lot of people. And don’t let the name fool you; this book could easily serve as the first book for anybody - kid or adult – that doesn’t know about money and saving.” - Rob Berger, The Dough Roller

“If you are looking for a single, efficient, comprehensive text with which to lay out the right money ideas for your kids, have confidence that Pivnick’s book is spot on perfect.- Michael Taylor, Finance Columnist for San Antonio Express News and Finance Blogger at Bankers Anonymous
