Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
An astonishing fact is that the vast majority of the wealthy come from middle-class or working-class backgrounds. Born and raised in modest economic circumstances, they find themselves as adults in the wonderful but unfamiliar world of wealth, like immigrants to a new land. Their adjustment is often harder than they anticipate. Yet awaiting wealth’s newcomers is an even more daunting task: how to raise children and grandchildren successfully in the family’s new world of affluence. Written by a prominent wealth psychologist, Strangers in Paradise takes an innovative approach to the challenges facing wealth’s “immigrants and natives.” Combining clear reasoning with real-world stories, Strangers in Paradise outlines for the first time how the key process for families of wealth - like all immigrant families - is adaptation.

This book has practical advice and an easily understood model for those who are coming into wealth. It is well written in a conversational style and gives practical advice for this transition. The book gives examples of families going through changes and how they cope or do not cope with the change. Some families lose their values and traditions or hide in secrecy and some successfully integrate the best of the old life with the new life. Families, advisors, and mental health professionals will find this book useful as they work with the issues of becoming newly wealthy, a change that many naively believe should only be easy.
Family stories were the foundations for many of our values and beliefs. We were fascinated and moved and proud as we heard about our immigrant grandparents, their convictions, thrift, hard work and perseverance in the face of adversity. We planned to model ourselves after them even though our lives were already filled with education and opportunities that they had never had. Five years into our marriage we found ourselves to be the financial beneficiaries of their labors and accomplishments. We were suddenly living in an entirely different landscape, different than our friends and neighbors, different than our parents; we were quite alone and wandering, without a map.
Looking at ourselves as immigrants in a new land of wealth, “strangers in paradise,” is useful to us in reviewing and assessing choices that we’ve made, conflicts we’ve felt, directions we’ve taken in in light of our family stories and lessons. We can see how we’ve adapted to wealth, places where we’ve hit roadblocks, made mistakes, and found alternate routes to realize our intentions. This book helps us examine our lives with compassion, insight and humor. We’ve found it comforting and renewing to discover that we have clearly not been alone as we often thought we were.
We are reading this book because we want to be as wise, clear and helpful as possible to our children as they are charting their own courses and have become parents themselves. We think that James Grubman’s book is a valuable guide for our work. And we will pass it on to them.
