    All the Money in the World
    How the Forbes 400 Make--and Spend--their Fortunes
    Published to coincide with the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Forbes 400, ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD, the work of a team of prominent editors and business writers, goes behind the celebrated list to paint a vivid and revealing portrait of the wealthiest Americans of the past quarter century. Abundantly anecdotal, with insights gleaned from original research, interviews with Forbes 400 members, and never-before-compiled data, it shows how fortunes are made in various industries, and how, once made, they are saved, enhanced, and sometimes squandered. From Wall Street to the West Coast, from blue-collar billionaires to blue-blood fortunes, ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD gives us the lowdown on, among other things: the all-time richest Americans, who made and lost the most money, the fields and industries that have produced the greatest wealth, the biggest risk takers, the most wasteful family feuds, and the most and least generous philanthropists. Produced in collaboration with Forbes magazine, ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD is a vastly entertaining, behind-the-scenes look at today’s Big Rich, a subject of enduring fascination to all Americans.
