Money changes everything, doesn't it? It's a topic of conversation around the water cooler, a wistful game of "what if?" played by anybody who's ever bought a lottery ticket. This book explores what sudden great wealth does to five ordinary people and how their lives change in extraordinary ways. Together, they learn the truth in the old saying, "Some people have money; some are rich."
