Editorial Reviews

Review

"A fascinating look at how famous fortunes have been made, spent, and lost. Michael Reynard literally opens the checkbooks of the rich and well known and provides a unique look at their spending habits and attitudes toward wealth." -- Rene Russo, actor<br /><br />"Michael Reynard has put together a stunningly original collection on the famous and infamous that is remarkable. . . . Fascinating!" -- George C. Scott, actor<br /><br />"Michael Reynard satisfies our curiosity about some of the richest and most glamorous people with his amazing accumulation of data from many sources. . . . A very readable book. I could barely put it down." -- John K. Lattimer, Professor, Columbia University<br /><br />"The subject of money has always been intriguing and, with Money Secrets of the Rich and Famous, Michael Reynard's "detective work" reveals all kinds of personal details about his subjects. His book is not only thoroughly entertaining, but each page is packed with fascinating, never-before-seen material about the very rich, the very famous, and the very powerful." -- Grace Diekhaus, Producer, 60 Minutes<br /><br />This is an extraordinary book combining, as it does, both the commonplace day-to-day chores of living and the rocket-to-the-moon temperaments of these explosive people." --Dean Riesner, screenwriter, Dirty Harry

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book as a gift...and then had to buy one for myself. I really couldn't put it down it was so much fun. The author has a gift for telling non-fiction stories in a manner that makes it read like great fiction. I learned more about famous people here than I did in many biographies, and all the way had fun doing it. It's a book that's very hard to stop reading. I wish it were longer!

Fascinating information about the financial lives of many famous people! If you are interested in the rich and famous, this book is for you. I read lots of technical books. This book was a nice diversion... very easy and extremely enjoyable to read.

The book is fun to read and tells how celebrites and historical figures made and spent their fortunes. Something for everyone with chapters ranging from Lucille Ball and Marilyn Monroe to Thomas Edison and Babe Ruth.
