About Life Planning for You: “A triumph! Destined to become one of the most influential books of our time. I found it fascinating, refreshing, educational, practical and uplifting. Kinder’s self-help exercises, his case studies, stories and five visions of Life Planning are always inspiring, often deeply moving. He and Mary Rowland provide an exceptional guide to how to find a financial adviser you can trust including a history of the fiduciary movement. In the clarity of his descriptions of Life Planning, he has defined the standard of care against which banks and financial services companies will come to be measured as we move in finance from what he calls a century of sales to an era, global in reach, of empowerment for consumers, delivering freedom.
