I want to give my 15 year old a brokerage account and book on investing for Christmas. What would be a good book for a kid of that age?>>>

I'd suggest you give him two books- The Motley Fool Investment Guide, of course, and Peter Lynch's Learn to Earn. The Lynch book is aimed at those high-school age or older, covers the basics of investment, business and our economic system and includes an intereting "Short History of Capitalism"....
