To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's a great little pocket book for anyone. I know it says for Teens, but it will be a starting point for anyone who hasn't got a clue. Personally, I loved it. Being a Money Literacy Educator for Kids, I gave the book to my 14-year old daughter to read and asked for a quick review from her. In her words, "mummy, it's really good, but it would be better if there were more money stories of adults and children". I asked her why so? In her words, "it will show how easy it is to do these things". My daughter does not represent every teenager, but her suggestion is worth noting.
I bought this for my teenage daughter. She read it in under an hour and said it was a waste of time.
I read it myself after that, and I have to say, I agree. The sort of parenting advice that takes a moment - don't waste your money on junk, think of something better you could do with it - stretched painfully thin over 100-ish pages.
I thought I was being a smart dad buying my daughter this - no, I wasted money on it which I could have invested instead. Oh, the irony.
