According to the book’s official description, “Bank Magic began as Murray’s response to the questions and conversations that came from his clients. He was inspired to provide his clients and in particular, their children, with sound advice on managing their finances. He often heard his clients say, ‘No one ever taught me about this’ or ‘This is the stuff I wish they taught me in school.’ These questions and conversations became the inspiration for this book. This book reflects Murray’s passion for sharing his real-world insight on money with his clients and their children. His goal is that every reader walks away from Bank Magic with the understanding and the tools to prepare them for today and the world ahead tomorrow. With this book, Murray sincerely hopes that the financial questions that come up from young adults can be answered and lead to a financially well-informed adult.”
