Complex behaviors govern our singular and coupled attitudes toward money today. Forget that we’re in one of the longest and deepest recessions in the country’s history. Focus instead on what dollars mean to you and your partner. Price (Money Magic, 2003) admits it’s one of the trickiest topics around. After all, if you don’t admit to yourself that your money relationship is somewhat askew, it’s even more difficult to discuss that with your partner. She makes that conversation somewhat easier through a series of exercises (e.g., How would you describe money if it were your lover? Determine your enough or how much money you need), a typology of eight different money personalities, from innocent and warrior to tyrant and magician, and ways to respond to subjects like incurring debt, spending versus saving, and mingling finances (or not). The book concentrates on the psychology of understanding inherited patterns and the best responses to continue an open dialogue, with a few pragmatic tips thrown in. With more than 50 percent of today’s divorces caused by the almighty dollar, Price gives much to think about. --Barbara Jacobs

In a world where money is one of the main conflicts in many relationships, it is a joy to find a book that turns this potential source of discord into an avenue for intimacy. Imagine that instead of being a wall between you and your partner, money issues can become a door to greater knowing, connection, and joy. In this wise and openhearted book, Deborah Price has trounced one of the last relationship taboos.”
Daphne Rose Kingma, author of The Ten Things to Do When Your Life Falls Apart
How wonderful to have a practical guide to empower couples to discuss their sensitivities and differences around finances. The Heart of Money will assist readers to bring about mutually respectful decisions that will bring satisfaction and fulfillment to all issues related to financial challenges. Whether working cooperatively to generate more income or being content with what we have, the intimacy, trust, and happiness that result from deep understanding is indeed our greatest wealth.”
Linda Bloom, LCSW, coauthor of 101 Things I Wish I Knew When I Got Married and Secrets of Great Marriages

The Heart Of Money provides couples a platform in which to communicate about money. It also provides essential tools to work with on a daily basis.
Although I enjoyed the entire book for its exceptional value....the "money types" were especially intriguing to me. The money types help us to see how we are hardwired and the workings of our unconscious patterns related to money. I have not found this type of description of the archetypes anywhere. Powerful and transformative.
If you are a therapist this is a must have for your therapy tool box. It will provide you with skills on how to help couples navigate the sometimes complex money dynamics.
If you are a couple this is a powerful self-help book that will change your relationship with money forever.
Thank you Deborah for your brilliance and exceptional work.
Lorraine Edey, PhD, LCSW, ACF
The Heart of Money is packed with strategies and exercises for a couple to do that focuses on their finances. The overall message that I got out of it was that money should be talked about in a healthy and positive way, even if there are financial problems that need to be dealt with.
Deborah L. Price (what a perfect last name for her) writes this book with compassion and understanding. She truly wants to help people push past and fix their financial issues, especially when it comes to relationships. She is authentic and the suggestions and tips she shares with us in this book can really help. There are many real life examples of how the author's clients were helped by these tips, and it is highly encouraging as a reader to see this.
Overall, I think that is a very good book to read for couples that need to have that conversation about money and their finances. I think that single people could also benefit from reading it too though, and they'll be better prepared for that conversation about money in their next relationship.
