Having grandchildren has been one of the amazing, unexpected joys of my life. In this book, John Spooner does what all grandparents hope to do for their grandchildren. He takes the life and career experiences he has had and finds a beautiful way to share the lessons learned with his grandchildren so that their lives may be better. All grandparents would wish to do the same.
--Coach Mike Krzyzewski, Duke University men's basketball coach and a grandfather
John Spooner is smarter about money and about life than almost anyone I know. As a blessing for all our grandchildren, he has written down what he has learned. Through charming storytelling, John shares his wisdom. Grandchildren and grandparents alike are the beneficiaries.
-- Shelly Lazarus, Chairman, Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide and a grandmother
Spooner is a phenomenon, as much a psychologist and futurist as an investment advisor.

I began listening to John Spooner's life lessons in 1974 - the value of handwritten notes, being held accountable, the unexpected laugh, the importance of being uncomfortable in another country, not our own, and, above all, attempting to have a deep and bountiful heart. It's all here, just open to any page.
