Frequently bought together
How little we understand about the mysteries of money and love and how they work together but all too often against each other. Helga Hayse helps us understand much that we ought to know on that score. She writes from the heart and she puts lucidly into prose good, sound and wise advice about the ways for us to begin needed conversations across the generation chasm and the divide that follows all too often from pain, hurt and misunderstandings. She wants, in the best sense, to help others and her book can indeed do just that. It can help provide the way for people who need to talk to each other about subjects that are not broached out of fear or anger. She has managed a distillation in Money, Love, and Legacy of poignant and revealing narratives, including her own compelling personal story, with guidance that is practical, sound and ultimately resonant with hope. --Michael Krasny, Host of KQED Forum, author of Off Mike: A Memoir of Talk Radio and Literary Life
None of us knows when our time will be up. We might live beyond 100 years or die with the next heartbeat. As a former ER physician, I ve seen families arrive too late for the conversations presented in this book. In my current role as a chaplain providing spiritual care, I ve seen the peace that comes when families can have the conversations that matter. Helga Hayse provides a gentle and clear guide to the territory most of us avoid- the conversations of the heart. Physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains and others who guide individuals and families towards open, loving and clear communication will also gain tremendously from reading this book. --Bruce Feldstein, M.D., Director, The Jewish Chaplaincy at Stanford University Medical Center
A common sense approach to rethinking personal relationships in the light of not-so-intuitively obvious cognitive science discoveries. Makes you question many of your most cherished beliefs about yourself and others. --Robert Burton, MD., author of On Being Certain: Believing That You Are Right Even When You're Not

After buying and reading this book, my husband and I began a series of conversations with our elderly parent, our adult children and stepchildren and most important, with each other about how we want to plan our own futures.
Helga Hayse' Money, Love & Legacy is a book we refer to on a regular basis. Her writing is personal, informative and specific. The book is unlike any of the other "estate planning" books we've read. It's more like a Life Planning guide with a good friend. A boon for anyone.
This is the first book of its kind I have seen. It is extremely accessible and practical, but avoids becoming a dry "how to" guidebook because it is glued together by concerns of the heart. I am old enough to have seen the harm caused by families not discussing these important matters before it is too late. Yesterday, I handed my three grown daughters each a copy, and I'm actually looking forward to our future conversations with this book as our guide.
At the time, letting matters slide until "tomorrow" was deceptively easy --- dealing with the aftermath of things unsaid has not been easy, especially with no recourse.
Money Love & Legacy offers what most of us need and desire in our heart-of-hearts --- a gentle and extremely informative guidebook for dealing with two taboo subjects: money and death.
Get this book NOW! (And get one for your parent(s) or grown-up kid(s).)
Note: the "Legacy Binder" (a step-by-step guide to assembling critical papers and information) alone is worth the price.
