Susan’s book is magical. As soon as I show it to an alum and invite them to share their values, they relax and start talking. The Wealth of Your Life is the best gift planning tool I’ve found to get people to open up about their estate plans without prying.

Katherine McKay, Director of Gift Planning, Holy Cross

This is a visually stunning book with immense heart.  It manages to be both inspirational and practical at the same time.  Susan Turnbull has succeeded in crafting the perfect guide to one of the most loving acts we can do for our family – creating an ethical will.  I recommend it highly to families I work with.

Dr. James Grubman, FamilyWealth Consulting

The Wealth of Your Life should be in everyone’s home. Turnbull shows us exactly what we need to pass on priceless gifts to our loved ones….our hopes, values, memories, and wishes. Wise people will not only buy the book, but they’ll consider what would help them get started on writing or recording their thoughts and feelings. So begin creating an ethical will by yourself or with a friend, family, or community group. The most important thing is to start…now!
