"[Orbanes] reveals tips and life lessons that are useful to everyone, from high schoolers getting theirfirst credit cards to Wall Street traders looking for an edge in their next negotiation." -- KEVIN TOSTADO, producer and director of Under the Boardwalk: The Monopoly Story

"Monopoly became a part of my life the moment my father, Robert Barton--then president of Parker Brothers--acquired the game in 1935. Now, all these years later, Philip Orbanes reveals what we've all sensed since then--the game is replete with solid financial lessons." -- RANDOLPH P. BARTON, former president of Parker Brothers

"As Philip Orbanes says, Monopoly teaches you two N's: numbers and negotiation. Numbers are vital to financial success, be it in your business, career, or personal life. And negotiation is really the acquired skill of selling effectively, a skill you rely on daily." -- BOB REISS, founder of 16 start-ups and author of Low Risk, High Reward

I found this very informative.It has actually helped me start saving money (very little) but better than none.It also has motivated me to be more goal orientated, and take life a little more seriously.There was a little too much information (advertising) about the game at the end though.It's one of those books you have to know what's really going on in the world , to get some of the underlying messages.
