Book Review: All the money in the world

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

Peter W. Bernstein and Annalyn Swan, Editors. All the Money in the World: How the Forbes 400 make — and spend — their fortunes. Knopf, 2007.

Prominent editors and business writers provide an entertaining view into the lives of the wealthiest Americans of the past quarter century. After discussing the personal qualities necessary to become a multimillionaire, the book describes how fortunes are made, how the superrich spend their money, and how heirs enhance or squander their fortunes.

Many individual stories are included, such as profiles of Oprah Winfrey and Warren Buffett, as well as the philanthropy of Ted Turner and Bill Gates. Lavish descriptions of how the rich live and lurid details about family feuds within the dynasties make for entertaining reading.
