It's Time to Rediscover America.

Our nation is deteriorating. Slowly but surely the virtues andvalues we once celebrated—responsibility, resilience,dignity, respect—have been abandoned. Our work ethic has beenreplaced by an entitlement ethic. And as we lose the culturaltraits that brought us to our leadership position, America'sstanding in the world will surely fall as well.

But there is good news, say David and Andrea R. Reiser.By rediscovering the qualities that made America great, we canstart to turn things around. We can teach our youngpeople—not to mention ourselves, our employees, and ourfellow Americans of all ages—what truly leads tosuccess, prosperity, and fulfillment.

That's what Letters from Home is about. Written in theform of letters to the authors' four sons, it explores fifteenbasic American virtues that built our country and that fosterindividual success. Each chapter includes profiles of exceptional"real people"—the authors' wealth management clients,friends, and neighbors—who truly walk the talk. A fewexamples of what the book teaches:

  • Work hard. Go above and beyond in all that you do.
  • Be resilient and learn from adversity.
  • Seize opportunity when it comes (and it comes every day).
  • Follow your moral compass faithfully and consistently.
  • When you fall, take responsibility for getting back up.
  • Save prudently and spend thoughtfully.
  • Practice gratitude. Know that you’re blessed.

Part cultural treatise and part kick-in-the-pants, Lettersfrom Home is a moving reminder that we live in a land offreedom and opportunity. It should inspire us all—parents,influential leaders, and ordinary citizens alike—to doeverything in our power to honor and perpetuate that legacy.

The authors are proud to contribute 100% of royalties fromthe publication of this book to three personally meaningfulorganizations: Share Our Strength (www.strength.org), MemorialSloan-Kettering Cancer Center (www.mskcc.org), and FORCE(www.facingourrisk.org).

From the Back Cover:

"In "Letters from Home, " David and Andrea Reiser lay out for their four sons the structure within which they have been raised--a structure that stresses honesty, decency, and a path to success in life that is based on traditional American values. It is a timely message for these young men as they move into manhood. It is a timeless message that they can pass on to their children and grandchildren." --Geraldine A. Ferraro

"David and Andrea Reiser in "Letters from Home" create a prescription for happiness, prosperity, and fulfillment in life that works for everybody--traditional virtues and values to guide young Americans as well as corporate CEOs. In an era when many Americans believe we have lost our compass, this book offers a playbook that inspires us to make the world a better place and to work hard to achieve the American Dream for ourselves and our families. Their passion for a meaningful and good life is deliciously contagious and worth passing on to all whom you love." --Howie Phanstiel, Retired Chairman & CEO, PacifiCare Health Systems
