interesting but improbable path 2 generational $

this book is an interesting outline of a possible way to retain a family's wealth across many generations. I do not believe that in 2018, that the structure of this book is plausible. It does not mean it is not with merit,. it simply means that the ideas must be brought into a vantage point of the current society, in time , culture, and geography.

Worth Every Penny!

This is the type of book you’ll have to keep close by your side for ever, then pass it down. Every piece of information in here was useful, I could never get tired of facts, and will read this book until I can recite it chapter by chapter. I am on my way to Wealth!
