Underlying the solid advice about successful investment practice, Curtis articulates a sophisticated and subtle social theory about the responsibilities attendant on those who are blessed with wealth. This brilliantly written and captivating book offers exceptionally perceptive insights about the psychology of wealth, including its many pitfalls for individuals or families who have not yet grasped the essential concept of stewardship and all that it entails.
This book is ridiculous: bromides about investments for the wealthy couched in pretentious observations and silly references that seem to be taken from Bartlett's Book of Familiar Quotations. The author appears to be a vassal to the very rich who worships his masters with zero objectivity or perspective. If the head butler of the Masterpiece Theater series Downton Abbey wrote a ma nual of servility, it could not be more obsequious or fawning. A kinder, more competent editor would have cut the book's length by half or more and published it for what it is: one more "how-to" manual written by some guy desperate for recognition. Save your $50 or donate it to a reputable charity, a far better investment.
I am about half way through "The Stewardship of Wealth" and I can’t put it down. I admire your having the strength of your convictions and the moral courage to “tell it like it is”. The pervasive underlying theme is that of the need for morality --- and it is not only needed in the business and financial arena but throughout our society. How far we have drifted from the moral premise upon which our Founding Fathers based our Constitution! I expect to read your book several times in order to fully absorb the finely articulated content. I am particularly impressed with the vast array of superb authors upon whom you’ve drawn. The footnoted bibliographies are extensive and something into which I will vigorously delve. I am going to buy a copy of “The Stewardship of Wealth” for each of our sons' guidance and reading enjoyment. I am confident both will enjoy it immensely.
