[Publicity2-list] A practical gift that helps young people (and their families)

Note: With Christmas and the New Year approaching, we're sending out a few reminders of books that work well as holiday gifts.
Talk of a higher ed bubble has young people wondering whether college is worth the cost.  In Europe, they're rioting.  Here in the U.S., parents and grandparents worry that people under 30 will live at home.  Forever.  You can help them do better.  Give this bestseller as a holiday gift. 


Click here to take advantage of this direct-from-the-publisher offer: A single copy of Early to Rise for $8.95; 20 copies for $119.75 ($5.99 per copy); or a full carton of 38 copies for only $151.75 ($3.99 per copy).


The new edition of Early to Rise focuses on basic financial discipline and learning the investment markets by setting up investment clubs. It's a great resource for young people coming of age in a tough economy.  Mike Stahl (author of the 2007 Silver Lake hit Money and Life) knows how to write for young people because he's still under 30 himself. So, his books stand out from the crowd of personal finance advice guides that talk down to their audience. 


Early to Rise (which has been cited favorably by The Wall Street Journal, The Kansas City Star, Bloomberg Television and CNN) has been a category bestseller on the amazon.com Kindle platform. You can read excerpts at GoogleBooks. And here's the Table of Contents:

Here's what the Midwest Book Review had to say:

Now in an updated second edition, Early to Rise: A Young Adult's Guide to Saving, Investing, And Financial Decisions That Can Shape Your Life is a guide to money matters in plain English terms, written especially for young people just starting out on their own. In an era when conventional wisdom warns against depending on benefits such as Social Security or Medicare as younger generations get older, Early to Rise takes the next logical step—teaching the reader how to develop an investor's mentality, the basics of money management and mutual funds, how to use stocks and youth to one's advantage, how to spot winning stocks and dump losers (hint: don't just look at how the stock has performed in the past, study the company's financial reports and prospects), and perhaps the most valuable investing advice of all, never get greedy. An excellent introduction to the world of finance.
