Protecting What's Yours: How to Safeguard Your Assets and Maintain Your Personal Wealth

Protecting What's Yours: How to Safeguard Your Assets and Maintain Your Personal Wealth

by Andrew D. Westhem, Donald J. Korn

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Westhem (Winning the Wealth Game) and Korn (Your Money or Your Life) here review life's pecuniary problems and offer wise counsel on how to overcome them. After covering investment basics, they address an array of human perils and counter-measures: burglary (good locks and lighting), expensive illness (proper medical insurance), carjacking (keep driving). ``Effective entertaining is absolutely necessary,'' we're advised in a chapter on self-employment, and elsewhere, more soberly, ``You could lose everything you own,'' on the need for liability insurance. Other vital topics include prenuptial agreements (recommended), divorces, business partnerships and lawsuits. Estate planning gets special treatment: one option suggested is a three-generational trust that is ``genuinely safe'' from counter-claims. Readers will get their money's worth from this guide. (Dec.)
Library Journal - Library Journal
Appropriately, the authors (Winning the Wealth Game: How To Keep Your Money in Your Family, LJ 3/15/92) begin by concentrating on financial investments such as stocks, bonds, and brokers. They then branch out far too quickly to include sections on protection during and after natural disasters, foreign travel, emergency medical coverage, retirement, personal bankruptcy, prenuptial agreements, divorce, and more. Much of what is written is simply common sense, but the organization is confusing and the language sometimes condescending. The authors are aiming their book at the general reader, yet they misjudge their audience's level of sophistication. They would have better served their audience by excluding some of the topics and expanding coverage of the remainder. A marginal purchase for large public libraries.-Margaret B. Bartlett, Rochester Inst. of Technology, N.Y.
