"Provides such useful guidance on the central issues of both how much wealth is enough and how wealth can best be given to worthy causes. . . . Should be read by potential givers both large and small."  —Charles B. Knapp, president emeritus, The University of Georgia



"I highly recommend this book to everyone who plans to engage in charitable giving no matter how much money they may have to give."  —Thomas S. Monaghan, founder, Ave Maria University and Domino's Pizza

This book is excellent and a must-read for anyone having - or wanting to have - money.

Although most of the book is viewed from a secular perspective, the author also ties his Christian beliefs into his money views as well.

I had very mixed feeling throughout the course of reading this book. While I agree with most of the premises the author puts forth and while there are certainly some excellent chapters, as a whole I had trouble making my way through to the end and wasn't thoroughly convicted of some of the main points of the book. Part of me wants to give the book 5 stars for its willingness to address difficult issues concerning wealth in a complete manner; however, another part of me wants to give the book 2 stars for its style of writing and the somewhat condescending tone throughout the book.

The first part of the book reads as a quasi-philosophical examantion of money and wealth. Those familiar with studies in philosophy will rocognize a scholastic or Aristotilean approach throughout the text. The book is heavy with quotes from great thinkers and businessmen and lacks a great deal of in-depth real-life examples.

Those expecting practical examples of what to do with money will be sorely dissappointed. If you're struggling to get out of debt or are a young person getting started in the world (as am I), and you want to develop a practical attitude towards money and providing for your family, start with a book by Dave Ramsey such as The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness. If, however, you want to "sharpen your mind" concerning wealth you have already built up, and you want to learn how to responsibily give it away, this may be the book for you.

THE POSITIVE:
This books provides an excellent way for a person to examine their conscience concerning their attitude towards money and wealth.

Frank Hanna's book introducing readers to the mysteries of making and retaining money is easy-going in its language and arguments from the beginning. What permeates the whole book is this ease that comes from experience and a world-view that gives him relaxation with his own nature as a money-maker. Hanna knows how to gauge morally the dangers and achievements of "filthy lucre." With a trained legal and rhetorical mind, Hanna can perceive the differences in ideas and language that determine the boundaries of good and evil in that most ambiguous of human arenas, the market place. In this sense, the book is a breakthrough because it dares to encompass larger spheres as well as the most practical.

I was particularly drawn to the "how to use it well" part of the title. Whether a person is seen as rich, middle or lower-income, using money well is important. The examples and guidelines developed by Mr. Hanna are practical and particularly useful to those involved in fundraising. What motiates people to donate large sums to a charitable cause? We certainly came away with ideas which we applied successfully to a capital campaign for the local special needs camp.

As a entrepreneur hopeful, but not having a lot of money at present, I've really struggled with how am I to handle the money that I've got? This book is excellent and a must-read for anyone having - or wanting to have - money. I'll be recommending it to all of my friends.
