Book Review Time At Family Money Values

It’s book review time at Family Money Values. Over the next three weeks, I will be reviewing 3 wealth related books each week.

These books were chosen because they provide a peek into the challenges of having financial wealth or a look at attitudes, mentality and personality of millionaires. These books will NOT necessarily tell you HOW to GET rich, but rather, they will help you understand what it is like to BE rich – along with all of the joys and problems it brings.

As a bonus review, the bottom of this post gives a brief synopsis of a lighthearted look at the money crowd via The Official Filthy Rich Handbook (How the other .001% lives) The Complete Guide by Christopher Tennant copyright 2008 published by Thomas Allen & Son Limited.

Without further ado, here are the books that I will summarize and review for you during the next three weeks.

A VERY brief review of The Official Filthy Rich Handbook:

The Official Filthy Rich Handbook

This tongue in cheek book tells all about how the really rich folks live – what they buy, where their houses (and second houses and third houses) are, what they wear, the cars they drive, the yachts they have, where to get a nanny, where to send your kids to school (boarding of course). It has a guide for household help, explaining for the new rich, what the various positions are and how they related to each other. It tells what diseases the rich suffer and where they go for treatment. It’s a great read and you learn things about wealth lifestyles you never thought you needed to know!
