Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The only personal finance book that gives women the tools to understand—and challenge—their psychological relationship with money so they can make smarter decisions about their current and future financial responsibilities.

Money is among the most emotionally charged issues in life. For many people, financial worth defines their sense of selfworth—and in today’s unstable economy—this can be devastating. Using fascinating real-life examples from her Emotional Currency workshops and therapeutic practice, Levinson helps women come to terms with their family history around money; reveals how old habits and ideas affect present-day spending and saving patterns; and offers strategies for achieving clarity and working through struggles around earning, investing, budgeting, spending, saving, inheriting, and losing money. She also shows how to use these insights to better manage immediate economic challenges while planning for a more secure future.

Review:

"Financial well-being starts with an emotional tuneup, writes Levinson, psychotherapist and creator of the Emotional Currency Workshops. She encourages women to become more conscious of money and how their emotions influence their financial behaviors with her exploratory questions and a 'money memoir.' Her exercises guide women to overcome their learned helplessness about money and to recognize its symbolic and actual functions in our lives: money can be a way to express self-worth and provide care — or we can abuse the power it gives us to hurt others. Levinson gently guides readers to consider how their families of origin shaped their relationship to money and how to get past the taboos they've learned regarding talking finances. Though the tone can occasionally cloy — readers are encouraged to consider their feelings about the feminine and masculine attributes of money — this is a comprehensive primer on unpacking years of emotional baggage regarding financial health. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
