Lasting Legacy - Doug Hagedorn

A Practical guide to secure your future, your family,  your finances, and your faith in uncertain times.    At over 475 pages, it is a daunting task to take this book at one sitting, it covers a lot of ground. When the reader considers 67 total chapters,  it does cover just about every aspect of a person's life.  The focus on this book is practical application. It is not a book to passively read and then put away.  It demands action. Checklists and tests are included to check your progress.
A unique feature of this book are icons that instruct the reader to take certain actions.  There are five unique icons that will tell the reader where to go for more information on the subject.  There is Mirror Moment - Look a little deeper, Selah- stop and take action,  Tune Tie - A song that relates to the subject. ( there are links to itunes in the ebook to the songs),  Generational Hall of Fame -- A story of an individual that made a generational impact, and Legacy Lesson - a summary that pulls it all together. These all enhance the chapters.
The author has also written a book called Ease the Squeeze,  concerning financial matters.  Of particular importance is the Milestones Moments chart and a decision tree to understand how your decisions affect generations to come, and what kind of legacy will you leave?  Subjects such as finances,  investing,  parenting, budgeting and faith are addressed.  A timely chapter on economics is important as it explains the U.S. debt, and what each of us can do about it personally.
I would recommend  this book to anyone who is concerned about the legacy the will leave, and how it will affect generations to come.
