The how-to guide to building a family legacy that will last for generations—from bestselling author Bill Bonner

From New York Times bestselling author Bill Bonner, and Will Bonner, comes Family Fortunes: How to Build Family Wealth and Hold on to It for 100 Years, a radical new way of looking at family money and a practical guide to building and maintaining multigenerational wealth.

Revelatory and contrarian, the book rejects almost everything you think you know about building a family legacy, from why giving your children as much education as possible is not a good idea to why charitable donations are generally a waste of money. Filled with real-life stories from families with money, as well as recollections from the Bonners' own experiences, this is the only book you need to keep your money in the family.
