Synopsis

Money. Greenbacks. Dough. Scratch. Moola. The big bucks. Some call it the root of all evil. Others say it makes the world go ‘round. But what do you really think about money? Evelyn McFarlane and James Saywell, authors of the popular If . . . series, get the gears turning with fun, provocative, and insightful questions about cold hard cash.

How much would it take to make you feel rich? What material object brings you the most pleasure? What is the most you would pay for a great meal in a restaurant? Who in your family would you treat differently if you became a millionaire? What profession gets paid the most to do the least? If you lost your job today, what would be the first expense you would cut out of your budget? When has money earned you respect?

From credit cards and 401(k)s to attitudes and ethics, If You Had a Million Dollars . . . puts your mind on your money with thoughtful and entertaining questions guaranteed to jumpstart fascinating conversation.


From the Hardcover edition.

Excerpt

Is money freedom?

If your loved one gave you a very expensive anniversary gift that you hated, what would you do?

Your parents tell you that they are leaving most of their estate to your sibling(s) and much less to you. How do you handle it?

Your parents have just told you they are going to spend all the money they can before dying, and leave the remainder to charity. What do you say?

A good friend owes you money and has not paid you back for a while. It is not enough to break the bank, but enough to compromise the friendship.

How do you deal with it?

If your boyfriend never let you treat on a night out, how would you feel about it?

What is your definition of personally being debt free?

What minimum amount of money would make a real change in your lifestyle?

Do you act differently around rich people?

If a good friend came to you for financial help, what would you do?
