Local Author, Pamela
Donates Books to Bay Area High Schools
Teachers Make it
Book Teaches New Investors About Investing and Personal Finance -
February 22, 2001 – (Oakland,
CA) – Pamela Ayo Yetunde, author of The Inheritance: A Stock-Picking
Story, will donate copies of her new book to economics classes at Bay Area
high schools - Berkeley High School and El Cerrito High School; the book
will be required reading.
Using the unique approach of
teaching through story-telling, the Oakland-based financial consultant
Yetunde has written the "first personal finance book that you ever
read from cover to cover" (D. Owens, Financial Commentator).
It's a money book that "reads like a novel," a fictional story
about a competition between twin brothers Isaac and Ishmael to prove who
is the better investor. Yetunde has supplemented the story with
investment tips and graphical illustrations throughout, ending with a
glossary of terms.

“Most investment books are
extremely dull, and that’s one of the reasons why otherwise literate
people remain financially illiterate,” states Tracey Scott, publisher
and owner of Marabella Books. “I think people from high school age
upward will appreciate the unique format and compelling story of
competition and love between two brothers.”
Yetunde was inspired to write
investment books as a way of giving back. “I wrote The Inheritance
because I wanted African-American youth and young adults to know that they
are entitled to participate in the stock market. I’m donating the books
because everyone has something to contribute to the ultimate success of
the next generation. This is just my way of making a difference.”
aren’t more money books written like this? It reads like a novel
so you don’t realize how much you’re learning. I recommend it to
everyone regardless of nationality, especially if you are ready to be
entertained instead of put to sleep. This one’s a winner!”
Barbara Stanny, author of Prince Charming Isn’t Coming
