"[Orbanes] reveals tips and life lessons that are useful to everyone, from high schoolers getting their first 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
