Praise for Balance

“BALANCE is one of the best personal finance books you’ll ever read — because it’s so much more than that. Andrew Hallam has written an insightful guide to spending and investing money not to impress others but to build a life of satisfaction and significance.”
Daniel H. Pink #1 New York Times bestselling author of WHEN, DRIVE, and TO SELL IS HUMAN

Decades ago, Andrew Tobias gave us “The Only Investment Guide You’ll Ever Need.” It’s still a good read. But “Balance,” by Andrew Hallam, ups the game and takes us many steps further. “Balance” gives us a complete, modern context for the role of money and investing in our lives.

Beneath a rich collection of anecdotes and stories, This short book provides a depth of research into the realities of investing and the errant relationship between money and happiness.
