Letters from Home: A Wake-up Call for Success and Wealth Hardcover – October 12, 2010
From the Inside Flap
Our nation is deteriorating. Slowly but surely the virtues and values we once celebrated--responsibility, resilience, dignity, respect--have been abandoned. Our work ethic has been replaced by an entitlement ethic. And as we lose the cultural traits that brought us to our leadership position, America's standing in the world will surely fall as well.
But there is good news, say David and Andrea Reiser. By rediscovering the qualities that made America great, we can start to turn things around. We can teach our young people--not to mention ourselves, our employees, and our fellow Americans of all ages--what truly leads to success, prosperity, and fulfillment. That's what Letters from Home is about. Written in the form of letters to the authors' four sons, it explores fifteen basic American virtues that built our country and that foster individual success. Each chapter includes profiles of exceptional "real people"--the authors' wealth management clients, friends, and neighbors--who truly walk the talk. A few examples of what the book teaches:
- Work hard, and go above and beyond in all that you do
- Be resilient and learn from adversity
- Seize opportunity when it comes(and it comes every day)
- Follow your moral compass faithfully and consistently
- When you fall, take responsibility for getting back up
- Save prudently and spend thoughtfully
- Practice gratitude, and know that you're blessed

In this permissive society, it is wonderful learn lessons that help us to value people and to live a life of integrety. The stories are not preachy. They are moving. It makes me want to have this kind of people in my life too.
So glad to be working with David and Andrea on this book campaign.
Great job. WAKE UP AMERICA!
This book touches upon all the virtues that seem to be lacking in today's modern society. Values like education, integrity, honesty, self discipline, patience, hard work, kindness, gratitude, and more are discussed. The format of this book is refreshing. It is a series of heartfelt letters to their sons that are based on each of the values and virtues that are needed to provide personal fulfillment and financial wealth. Each chapter is then exemplified by someone the boys are familiar with. If more (all!) parents followed David and Andrea's advice on instilling these virtues to their children, America would return to her majestic standing!
