Publisher's Summary

Charles Schwab and his daughter Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz know whereof they speak. Now these nationally known financial services specialists make their knowledge available to families in a close, father-daughter conversation about money that families can take to heart. Addressing one of the most difficult topics for families, the pair offer advice about how to have these essential yet sometimes delicate conversations with one's spouse, parents, and children. Fundamental investing principles, building wealth, financial issues for couples and parents, retirement planning, estate planning, and preparing for the unexpected are all presented within the context of a family's unique financial goals and priorities. Instrumental in opening up the world of investing to Americans, Charles Schwab joins his daughter to show how families can intelligently and respectfully discuss these crucial issues.

What the Critics Say

"This educational volume provides a useful framework that a family can refer to when approaching those often difficult but necessary conversations about finances." (Publishers Weekly)
"A practical book for men and women, young and old....It's smartly written, earnest without being preachy, and offers down-to-earth advice on how to forge productive conversations about money between spouses and partners, parents and children, and adult children and aging parents." (Chicago Tribune)
"Most families don't talk about money. Personal finance ranks with sex and drugs as one of the least-discussed topics and one fraught with emotional baggage....Bottom line: You have to fend for yourself when it comes to money, and the way to do that is to talk about it with parents, spouses, and children....We all have to take care of ourselves financially. This book is a good place to start." (USA Today)

    "Stop talking .."

    I found this book to do very little to help me with anything. I was not shown the the premise of the book (talking) really did much to help me.

    I should have skipped "paying out" for this book.
