Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tune into the news and you'll hear stories of war, disease, natural disasters, corruption, violence, poverty, crime, nuclear proliferation, terrorism and political dysfunction in Washington. Polls show many believe the American dream is fading, our children face limited opportunities, and the country is decidedly on the wrong track. Yet this dour perspective—one recycled 24/7 by the national media—is a gross distortion of the world we live in today.

As national investment expert and bestselling author Alexander Green reveals in this engrossing and provocative new book, the human race has never had it so good. In the West today, we work shorter hours, have more purchasing power, enjoy goods and services in almost limitless supply, and have more leisure time than ever before. Living standards are the highest they have ever been. The human life span has nearly doubled over the past hundred years. Literacy and education levels—even I.Q.s—are at all-time highs. Technology and medicine are revolutionizing our lives. All forms of pollution—with the exception of greenhouse gases—are in decline. Access to the arts has never been greater. Crime is in a long-term cycle of decline. And the risk of death by violence has never been smaller for most of humanity.

By almost every measure, our lives today are wealthy beyond measure. We are all heir to an embarrassment of riches. Yet—thanks in large part to the drumbeat of negative media coverage—most of us don't realize it. Green compares the average citizen to "a lottery winner whose ticket is lost in some upstairs drawer."

The consequences of adopting the cynical but popular worldview are many, including needless pessimism, missed investment opportunities, and—surprisingly—even poorer health. Yet An Embarrassment of Riches provides a powerful antidote.

Green begins with a robust survey of the many ways our lives are becoming longer, easier, safer, healthier, and more prosperous. He then embarks on a wide-ranging exploration of the ideas and the many men and women—both living and dead—enriching our lives today.

Among the many subjects explored are American exceptionalism, the extraordinary power of economic freedom, the lifesaving role of medicine and technology, the life-extending benefits of optimism, the radical theology of Thomas Jefferson, the keys to civility and greatness, the wisdom of Confucius and Aristotle, the ability of beauty to enrich our lives, and even one artist's thought-provoking take on "how to defeat death."

In An Embarrassment of Riches, New York Times bestselling author Alexander Green offers a holistic approach to wealth—and offers a welcome perspective that allows us to live fuller, richer lives.

Synopsis:

Praise for An Embarrassment of Riches

"In An Embarrassment of Riches, Alex Green reveals a decidedly different world than the one we get from the 24-hour news cycle. By virtually every measure of human well-being, we are living in the best of times. If you're concerned about the future, this is the case for rational optimism. Enthusiastically recommended."

—Joel F. Wade, PhD, author of Mastering Happiness

"An unrepentant optimist, Alex Green here counters the emotional but nonfactual arguments of the doomsday pundits. The truth is we've never had it so good—and I believe the uplifting worldview, so eloquently expressed in these pages, will prevail."

—Mark Skousen, Editor of Forecasts & Strategies, founder of FreedomFest and bestselling author of Investing in One Lesson, The Big Three in Economics, The Making of Modern Economics and Maxims of Wall Street

"An Embarrassment of Riches is a superb collection of essays that looks clearly at the challenge of finding meaning and perspective in our post-modern world. The insights here are not just thought-provoking but deeply inspiring."

—Michael Masterson, bestselling author of Automatic Wealth, The Reluctant Entrepreneur and Seven Years to Seven Figures

"In An Embarrassment of Riches, Alex Green opens the door to a fuller, better way to think about wealth. Finally, someone is talking not just about quantity but about quality."

—Bill Bonner, founder of Agora Publishing and bestselling author of Family Fortunes, The New Empire of Debt and The Idea of America

"This book is a beacon. With each page, Alex reminds us—with characteristic insight and wit—that there is much to be thankful for, if we would only open our eyes and see."

—Hal Movius, founder and President of Movius Consulting and co-author of Built to Win: Creating a World-Class Negotiating Organization

Synopsis:

A bestselling financial expert outlines a new, holistic approach to wealth

"Are you living a rich life? Are you enjoying your work, or are you simply selling yourself to the highest bidder?" asks Alexander Green, author of such bestsellers as The Gone Fishin' Portfolio and Beyond Wealth. In An Embarrassment of Riches: Tapping Into the World's Greatest Legacy of Wealth, Green outlines a new, holistic approach to wealth that helps readers build a life as rich in purpose and meaning as in money.

Alexander Green has enjoyed a successful career as both a professional money manager and a financial writer with a unique, spiritual approach to wealthy living that is expressed in his newest book, An Embarrassment of Riches. Emphasizing understanding, wisdom, and purpose as much as income and assets, Green walks readers on a path to accumulating wealth in the broadest sense of the term.

  • Offers financial perspectives from a bestselling investment expert with a spiritual approach
  • Emphasizes understanding, wisdom, and purpose as much as income and assets
  • Helps readers make decisions based on personal as well as financial aspirations

"You can't put a price on freedom, especially personal freedom," says Alexander Green. An Embarrassment of Riches: Tapping Into the World's Greatest Legacy of Wealth shows readers how to lead a life that is both materially and spiritually rich.

"Synopsis" by , Praise for An Embarrassment of Riches

"In An Embarrassment of Riches, Alex Green reveals a decidedly different world than the one we get from the 24-hour news cycle. By virtually every measure of human well-being, we are living in the best of times. If you're concerned about the future, this is the case for rational optimism. Enthusiastically recommended."

—Joel F. Wade, PhD, author of Mastering Happiness

"An unrepentant optimist, Alex Green here counters the emotional but nonfactual arguments of the doomsday pundits. The truth is we've never had it so good—and I believe the uplifting worldview, so eloquently expressed in these pages, will prevail."

—Mark Skousen, Editor of Forecasts & Strategies, founder of FreedomFest and bestselling author of Investing in One Lesson, The Big Three in Economics, The Making of Modern Economics and Maxims of Wall Street

"An Embarrassment of Riches is a superb collection of essays that looks clearly at the challenge of finding meaning and perspective in our post-modern world. The insights here are not just thought-provoking but deeply inspiring."

—Michael Masterson, bestselling author of Automatic Wealth, The Reluctant Entrepreneur and Seven Years to Seven Figures

"In An Embarrassment of Riches, Alex Green opens the door to a fuller, better way to think about wealth. Finally, someone is talking not just about quantity but about quality."

—Bill Bonner, founder of Agora Publishing and bestselling author of Family Fortunes, The New Empire of Debt and The Idea of America

"This book is a beacon. With each page, Alex reminds us—with characteristic insight and wit—that there is much to be thankful for, if we would only open our eyes and see."

—Hal Movius, founder and President of Movius Consulting and co-author of Built to Win: Creating a World-Class Negotiating Organization

"Synopsis" by , A bestselling financial expert outlines a new, holistic approach to wealth

"Are you living a rich life? Are you enjoying your work, or are you simply selling yourself to the highest bidder?" asks Alexander Green, author of such bestsellers as The Gone Fishin' Portfolio and Beyond Wealth. In An Embarrassment of Riches: Tapping Into the World's Greatest Legacy of Wealth, Green outlines a new, holistic approach to wealth that helps readers build a life as rich in purpose and meaning as in money.

Alexander Green has enjoyed a successful career as both a professional money manager and a financial writer with a unique, spiritual approach to wealthy living that is expressed in his newest book, An Embarrassment of Riches. Emphasizing understanding, wisdom, and purpose as much as income and assets, Green walks readers on a path to accumulating wealth in the broadest sense of the term.

  • Offers financial perspectives from a bestselling investment expert with a spiritual approach
  • Emphasizes understanding, wisdom, and purpose as much as income and assets
  • Helps readers make decisions based on personal as well as financial aspirations

"You can't put a price on freedom, especially personal freedom," says Alexander Green. An Embarrassment of Riches: Tapping Into the World's Greatest Legacy of Wealth shows readers how to lead a life that is both materially and spiritually rich.
