Investment adviser and best-selling author John Spooner has been called “a national treasure” and a “Boston institution.” True, and yet, those titles conjure a staid individual who couldn’t be more unlike the actual Spooner.

His latest, “No One Ever Told Us That,” compiles lessons about money and life in a series of letters to his grandchildren.
