I found this book while searching around for stories about lottery winners. While there are maybe 1-2 other books out there on the subject, they are poorly reviewed, or don't really get to the real reasons I started my search. Here's what I want:

- I've often heard "more money, more problems" but I want to read in-depth stories about that.

- I started playing the lottery, and told my friends that the first thing I'd do is buy a book about how to deal w/ winning the lottery. So why not get the book

I received a copy of this book from goodreads firstreads giveaways. I have been blessed/cursed with sudden wealth, but do often fantasize about what I would do with fictional lottery winnings. This book is not about fantasy, but the reality of dealing with a huge influx of money. The first half of the book is several fictionalized stories of people who suddenly became wealthy, by inheritance, lawsuit payoff, lottery, selling a business. Everyone handles it differently, and for some it is a real ...more

My many thanks to the Authors, their Publisher, and of course, Goodreads for giving me the opportunity in reading and reviewing this free book.

Great book. It gives the reader a number of very solid suggestions on what to do if (and a very heavy 'if') you are faced with a good sized amount of money suddenly coming into your life. It contains true tales of common folks who had this happen and what they did to manage it.

I still found this quite a really decent reading as the only one that would eve

In the interest of full disclosure, I received an advanced copy of this book through GoodReads.

Ms. Muhlstein does a wonderful job of capturing the essence of Balzac and providing insight as to the events of his life which may have contributed to his lifestyle. She paints such a vivid picture of the times and mentality of the era that it's easy to imagine yourself sitting across the table from Balzac himself.

Excellent advice for anybody! Having practiced estates and trusts along with tax law, I

In the interest of full disclosure, I won a copy of this book on Goodreads.

All in all, a great book! I think that if I had any extra money come in, I would be very appreciative of a book that details out how to handle it. I think what I most loved about the book is that it suggested there were ways that "sudden wealth" could happen that many people don't think about (i.e., retirement, inheritance, death of spouse, business sale, divorce, lottery, lawsuit, et al). The book is well-written, and t

A book chock full of stories about what a variety of people did after they hit it big for a variety of reasons.
I'm gonna be honest, I don't see my self getting rich suddenly anytime in the near future. Though I guess the sudden-ness is the point.
But this is an interesting book that shows the sides of people that we don't get to see until the greed comes out, and it shows a part of the human condition that we don't like to see.
A book that I wouldn't normally pick up. But a good read nontheless.
