"This book is a small treasure, exploring several different perspectives on the deeper meaning and use of family wealth. Many investment advisers have purchased copies of this book for their clients. It is a resource both for individual families that are looking at what to do with their wealth and for family advisers who want to work better with their clients."
- Dennis T. Jaffe, Saybrook Graduate School
"Charles W. Collier, a Harvard University fund raiser, offers a philosophical look at the meaning and purpose of wealth, in the hope of helping readers - especially those with substantial financial means - to explore family issues, shape their philanthropy, and make wise giving decisions. Wealth in Families builds on the premise that wealth is not just financial - it's also defined in human, intellectual, and social dimensions."
