'The Business of Family is destined to become the standard work in the realm of family wealth management. Well-written, clear, and user friendly, this helpful guide will direct interested individuals upon the right course to best financially manage their most precious asset: their family.' Laura Skandera Trombley, President of The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens

'Linda elegantly tackles two of the most emotional subjects in the world family and money. The Business of Family is a valuable resource filled with engaging stories and actionable strategies that can help families find common ground and sustain their wealth for generations to come.' Hannah Shaw Grove, Founder of Private Wealth magazine and author of The Family Office: Advising the Financial Elite

'Practical, thoughtful advice for families interested in a purposeful approach for maintaining and growing wealth. Filled with memorable anecdotes and useful references, the book identifies behavioral biases that can have significant, negative impacts on relationships and on wealth. The book is a model of how to think systematically about the interaction of business and family.' Janet Kiholm Smith, Von Tobel Professor of Economics, Claremont McKenna College
