Is it possible to speak openly about wealth? That is the challenge that this book modestly attempts to meet, using all the accoutrements--knowledge, wisdom and even humor--that such a topic requires. It is our greatest wish and highest ambition that today's wealth--whether long-held or recently acquired--be wealth for the future, not just an end for today. Wealth is a means of building tomorrow's world. Thierry Lombard Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch & Cie This book is by eminent family enterprise consultants Dr. Denise Kenyon-Rouvinez and Dr. John L. Ward who bring their vast knowledge to this subject. With the wisdom of Buddhist monk, Matthieu Ricard and the humor of French cartoonist Gabs, this book is a must for all family members dealing with the issue of wealth.
