The Seven Stages of Money Maturity - George Kinder

Its been a little while since I have last posted but I really wanted to tell you about the latest book I have read. A colleague introduced me to The Seven Stages of Money Maturity a couple of months ago and I thought I would give it a try.

While I'm certain anyone could get a great deal from this book I feel it could be of most help to other financial advisers. George Kinder has many years experience in financial management and over time has developed a fantastic outlook on how best to help clients achieve - money maturity! Given the ever approaching RDR (retail distribution review) in January 2013 building a robust client proposition is or at least should be at the forefront of the minds of every financial adviser around the country.

This is no big sales pitch, just my comment on an interesting read. You can pick up the book from most major book stores - I got mine online. For those of you that get to read it please let me know what you think and if you have any other great books on financial advice then please let me know by way of comment.

I can't imagine there are many more as the topic is not exactly what you would call mainstream although it is refreshing to see a book focussed not on "how to make money from shares" and more, how to understand your relationship with money and how that knowledge and understanding can help you to build a far better financial future for yourself, or your clients.
