There is nothing new here for those who have read and understood Atlas Shrugged, but this direct explanation of the value of money is clear and convincing. Dr. Smith answers the usual moral condemnations of money and provides concise reasoning to prove that money can be used as a tool for achieving and sustaining happiness. She is very careful to point out that money does not necessarily lead to happiness, but some minimum level of it is essential to sustain it.

For any folks out there who are wondering why it is important to work and earn money and are feeling either consciously or unconsciously guilty about wanting to have more money - READ THIS SHORT BOOK. It points out the obvious and makes the connection between money and having and doing things you love and make you happy. This also expands on the standard retort to those who would say that money can't buy happiness by pointing out and proving that, in fact, it can.

This is a rather small booklet -- with powerful information on how objectivist thinking can allow us to live richer, fuller lives. It emphasizes how the power of free markets benefit all and that guilt free success is normal and healthy.
