The one-time high school and college superstar is perhaps most famous for tousling with coach Bobby Knight at Indiana University and later teaming with (soon to be fellow NBA star) Jimmy Jackson. They helped Ohio State with the Big Ten Championship in 1992. Lawrence is a magna cum laude graduate of Ohio State University in business finance. In 2000, he founded the non-profit Lawrence Funderburke Youth Organization (LFYO) where he now works to motivate young people to continue their education and to live their lives with a positive purpose.

Well written easy to read essay on the pitfalls of sudden wealth and the responsibility to manage it. Mr Funderburke brings home so many important financial concepts that can be utilized by everyone who is responsible for managing their financial affairs and how to recognize the agendas of others, agendas that are often at odds to your own financial goals. A must read for any one who feels at risk when dealing with financial "advisors".

Mr. Funderburke knows of what he speaks - for several years, Mr. Funderburke was hired by the NFL and the NBA to give his presentation to rookies precisely because they were wealthy and vulnerable to precisely the scams he writes about in his book. This is "Can't-Put-It-Down" material written by a man whose life should be an example to professional athletes - your career WILL end and you may not get to pick when that happens, so prepare accordingly.
