Introductory books for teenagers?

    I have a 14 year old son whom I would like to present a few beginner books on the stock and futures market. I am not sure what has been written on these subjects that would be entertaining enough to hold a teen's interest and make him want to know more when he's done.

    Has anybody found any books that would do the trick?

  2. Hi Logikos,

    A close friend of mine (a futures trader) was in a similar situation with his 15 year old daughter.

    He simply took her to the local library and they gather all the trading books, market books, wallstreet books they could find and let her decide...

    I believe she eventually selected some books about women traders or women that work in the financial business on WallStreet.

    Note: I don't remember any specific titles but could make for an educational afternoon at the local library for you and your son...

    Once again...let him decide.

    Good luck and have fun.
