Publisher's Summary

Most Americans have not inherited wealth or a successful business that can set them up for life. That means most Americans are destined to live with financial worries and concerns for the rest of their lives, right? Wrong!

With his entertaining and informative style, New York Times best-selling author, actor, and financial pundit Ben Stein refutes the current notion that the corporate system is rigged against ordinary citizens and explains how corporate stock ownership is the best system ever devised to give both workers and savers a route to financial comfort and security.

That's what this book is all about: how being smart about consistent, conservative investment in a diversified portfolio of stocks can harness the incredible power of the US economy, building financial security for any American that decides to participate.

underwhelming narration

very short for the price, lackluster narration - even for a book on economy. I would've rather heard ben stein narrate if I wanted a monotone performance. the book - short on points, not very in depth, geared toward laymen. overall informative but left me wanting more.

Good read and a must to share

I found this book very informative and shared it with my teenagers and wife. These lessons are best learned at a young age but are always relevant.

Bah

All over the place, with a overly simple message. Lots of definitions-out of context. Didn’t do a great job of selling capitalism anyway. Really no insight, that was the problem. This guy is just smart enough to know that writing a book is a zero downside action, knowing it will sell no matter the quality for various reasons.

Not great but helpful

This book seems to be a primer to get you interested in trading stocks. As with many of these sorts of books it could have been summed up nicely in a 3 page paper. The book is well written and entertaining.

My biggest gripe is that the narrator is frankly terrible. Slow speaking with long pauses made the book feel poorly written and understanding the content difficult. Listening at 1.25 speed just made it worse.
