The Little Book That Makes It OK!,
This review is from: The Problem With Money? It's Not About the Money!: Mastering the Unexamined Beliefs that Drive Our Financial Lives (Hardcover)
Money; Finances; the bank account. Words that nobody - and no married couple - like to talk about. Let's face it, people will talk about their sex lives more easily than they do their finances. We hide from them, pretend like they don't exist, and do everything in our power to avoid having to sit down and have a real conversation about them. It's such a shame - but what's the problem with talking about money? The problem is we don't know how and we are afraid of facing our biggest fears -- our own self!
In this book the author takes us on a very easy to follow journey about how we can confront these fears we have about finances and help move our lives along. Through easy to read chapters and helpful "write it down" exercises she doesn't lecture us or tell us that it's all our own fault -- instead, like a kind grandmother, she holds our hand and helps us discover the true problem with our financial woes. Advice isn't given so much as it is learned and discovered.
I would recommend this book for parents who want to give their soon-to-be-in-the-real-world kids a heads up on their financial life; for those who find themselves struggling paycheck to paycheck; and even those who think they are living comfortably, but lie away sometimes at night worrying about financial matters for no apparent reason.
A good read, a good gift book and most importantly a good book to help you overcome probably what is one of your biggest fears -- money and all the things associated with it!
