From the Inside Flap
In Fables of Fortune, author Richard Watts pulls back the brocade curtain to reveal the precarious path of wanting more. As the advisor to the super rich, Watts reflects on the reality of wealth and a difficult and heartbreaking lesson: "The wealthiest person is not who has the most, but who needs the least."
Fables of Fortune convincingly persuades readers that wealth may be overrated. Through vignettes based on true stories, Watts reveals the challenges the super-wealthy face, including
marriages based on net worth, interfamily inheritance battles, faux friends, entitled children,
alienation, and spiritual depletion.
The successes and failures of life inspire the heartbeat of passion and self-actualization.
Watts will challenge readers to reconsider key life questions of personal value and discover surprising new answers. Fables of Fortune reveals an honest, comparative, eyeopening analysis for any reader who believes wealth is a rose without thorns. Read on and gain perspective and appreciation for your own real fortune in life.
