Does just a little more money solve any problem?

Imagine private jets ready for an afternoon flight to New York City for a transcontinental shopping trip . . . luxury yachts circling the globe awaiting their owner’s arrival . . . fully staffed vacation homes throughout the world rarely visited. The rich live trouble-free lives of graceful ease. Or do they?

In Fables of Fortune, author Richard Watts pulls back the brocade curtain to reveal the precarious path of wanting more. As an advisor to some of the wealthiest families in America, Watts reflects on the reality of wealth and the 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 to happiness the super wealthy face, including marriages based on net worth, interfamily inheritance battles, faux friends, entitled children, alienation, and spiritual depletion.

Fables of Fortune reveals an honest, comparative, eye-opening analysis for any reader who believes wealth is a rose without thorns.
