Wichitans Ray Haskell and Reg Redding plan Saturday book signing for "The Game of Wealth"

WICHITA — Some people get lucky and become wealthy without having to work for it.

For the rest of us, Wichitans Ray Haskell and Reg Redding have written "The Game of Wealth: A Strategy for Winning Wealth and Living a Full Life."

"It's a fresh perspective on how to look at where you are in life and what you need to do, especially in some unsure and uncertain times," Haskell says.

They purposely chose a game analogy, Redding says, because "everybody can relate to a game."

Redding is an accountant with Lone Star Steakhouse. Haskell used to work there and now does estate planning, financial analysis and insurance sales, mostly for seniors.

The two will have a book signing Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Wichita.

Along with money-saving tips, Redding says the book explains the concept of taking responsibility.

"That was one thing that we just didn't see out there in other books," he says.

The book also explores being wealthy in other areas outside of finances, though Haskell says that's a key emphasis.

"It's not as hard as some people think," he says.
