Alvin Hall has his own rags-to-riches story. He grew up on a subsistence farm in rural Florida, then after his degree began a career on Wall Street. He now heads a company giving training to a wide range of financial services companies and institutions around the world. He has also presented a 4-part BBC series INVESTING FOR ALL WITH ALVIN HALL, a 3-part BBC series ALVIN HALL'S GUIDE TO SUCCESSFUL INVESTING as well as YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE. He appears regularly on GMTV.From Publishers Weekly:
In this thoughtful, fresh guide to personal finance management, author and BBC television personality Hall approaches money as something "deeply intertwined with our emotional lives," a quantity that plays "a powerful role in our personal relationships." As such, Hall examines money as closely as its interpersonal influence: "Any kind of major life change-even a positive one, like a dramatic increase in your income-can produce dangerous stresses in your relationships." In chapters with titles such as "Money and Your Parents," "Money and your Peers" and "Money and Your Partner," Hall starts with a short self-assessment quiz-which by itself will get readers thinking differently about money-followed by a thorough discussion of the issues: "Money Personalities, Balanced and Unbalanced," "What Did Money Mean in Your Family?" and "Dealing with the Trauma of Inheritance," among others. Hall wisely focuses on making this book a reader-friendly experience; summaries in "The Bottom Line" and "Take-Aways" make for easy skimming, and issues are consistently supported by emotional, true-life tales of financial strife. This book functions a bit like one-stop self-help, giving readers insight into money, relationships and themselves.
