A concise and helpful introduction to the variation in resources (economic, emotional, physical, mental, etc.), values (what is considered ultimately important), and hidden rules of generational poverty, middle-class, and wealthy. Read full review
This is probably the book that I recommend more than any other. It was a revelation when I read it many years ago and it still astonishes me. Poverty, middle class, and wealth are discussed everywhere, but Dr Payne makes these situations real. I have not found any other publication so clear, so insightful, so fascinating, as this one. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the problems of poverty and wealth.
