Julia Whelan's sultry speaking style is somewhat formal sounding compared to the author's conversational tone. Nonetheless, Whelan works her way into an appealing rhythm with this cogent advice on teaching financial intelligence. Kobliner's abundant wisdom is evident from the opening chapter, which summarize the practical tenets of her approach. She shows how the major lessons of good personal finance can be delivered to each of six age groups--preschool through young adult. Whelan, sounding consistently practical as she reels off tip after tip, delivers a broader message that is grounded in developmental psychology and focused more on instilling values than accounting skills. Chapters covering the basics of good money management such as self-control, managing debt, and investing provide needed emphasis on long-term thinking for our easily distracted culture.
