Create Your Legacy and Preserve Your Estate for Future Generations

"Playing The Game" - How to Achieve Financial Independence

A Book By Paul Remack


Book Synopsis

Personal wealth isn’t the only purpose of hard work and investment; it’s also important to be able to pass wealth on to one’s children and grandchildren. Wealth transfer and distribution is a game, and if played poorly―or if it is not realized a game is being played―one’s fortune can be eaten away by a combination of poor investments and unfair taxation.

Written by a financial advisor with decades of experience, Playing the Game prepares people for the game of Wealth Transfer and Distribution, enabling them to pass on their fortune intact so that future generations may enjoy it.

Format: Paperback Edition

For those of us who are "financial procrastinators" this was a very educational and thoughtful book on a subject that can be both confusing and overwhelming. Whether you are a high net worth individual/family or just someone who wants to insure your assets are distributed as you wish, this is a "must read." The writing is concise and highly readable, packed with practical information --- with real life examples that many of us can relate to.
