Chris Guillebeau, New York Times best-selling author of The $100 Startup
“This is the first book about finances (and life!) that I can actually relate to. Refreshingly candid, uplifting, and practical, Money: A Love Story addresses what holds us back from healing and thriving both personally and financially. I wish I had this book long ago. I can only imagine how much grief I would have spared myself. But as Kate reminds us, it’s all part of the spiritual journey to freedom and abundance. Thank you, brilliant Kate Northrup. I am deeply in love with the road map you’ve given us all.”
Kris Carr, New York Times best-selling author of Crazy Sexy Kitchen
“You may know that a healthy relationship with money is essential to attracting abundance and generating financial freedom. What you may not know is that a healthy relationship with your finances is also medicine for a healthy body. With her signature flourish, Kate Northrup teaches us to quit waiting for Prince Charming, take responsibility for our financial well-being, create success on our own terms, lean into feeling-based financial planning, and take actions toward generating revenue without trading hours for dollars. Money: A Love Story is just what the doctor ordered for your body, your soul, your business, and your pocketbook.”
Lissa Rankin, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself
“What I love most about this book is that there are several actionable steps along the way to figuring out your relationship with money. Kate Northrup shares her wins and her struggles for you to consider. Dig into a different kind of love story with this one.”
— Chris Brogan, CEO of Human Business Works and New York Times best-selling co-author of The Impact Equation

Warning: Get prepared to be supported with the knowledge and power to live your dream life.”
Tara Stiles, best-selling author of Yoga Cures and Slim Calm Sexy Yoga, and founder of Strala Yoga
“If I had this kind of freedom-focused guidance when I first got going, I'd have saved myself a lot of suffering . . . and a lot more cash. Kate's take on money is grounded, fresh, and womanly wise.”
Danielle LaPorte, creator of The Desire Map and The Fire Starter Sessions
“If you’ve got issues with money—especially if you’ve been avoiding them—you’re going to love Money: A Love Story. Kate not only takes you by the hand, but she puts her arm around you reassuringly, removing any shame or guilt you may feel, gently guiding you through the fog with powerful exercises, inspiring stories, and kick-ass advice . . . until, before you know it, you’re financially free, personally empowered, and having a love affair with your money and your life. Her own story is a personal testimony to the power of this work.”
— Barbara Stanny, author of Prince Charming Isn’t Coming, Overcoming Underearning, and Secrets of Six-Figure Women
“With her trademark authenticity and wit, Kate Northrup shows you how to enrich your life on every level in Money: A Love Story. Reading this gem of a book is an excellent investment of your time. As you turn the pages your shoulders will drop back into place and the quiet but agonizing stress that money can so often create in a life will fall away as you open up to an entirely new way of relating to your finances. You’ll learn the power of what Kate so aptly calls ‘feeling-based financial planning’ to create lasting financial wellness. You will never think about money the same way again, because you will create your own financial love story.”
— Manisha Thakor, CEO and founder of MoneyZen Wealth Management
Money: A Love Story is about telling the truth. It’s about daring to be courageous enough to just love ourselves where we are—for richer or poorer and without judgment or shame. This book allows us to define what wealth means to us in our own lives and to know our worth no matter what our current circumstances. There is a transformation waiting for all of us in these pages. Kate Northrup offers the financial and emotional wisdom to guide us from a place of lack to a place of abundance with blazing love, raw honesty, and the riveting clarity she has acquired from her own pilgrimage to financial freedom.”
— Meggan Watterson, author of Reveal: A Sacred Manual for Getting Spiritually Naked
Money: A Love Story shows us convincingly that money isn’t all about numbers and impersonal charts—it’s also deeply emotional, and personal. Kate’s section on over-giving to exhaustion vs. giving more value sustainably is worth the price of admission alone, and that is just the beginning. Profound, subtle, and fresh thinking on a topic, which should be as dear to our hearts as it is close to our pockets.”
Michael Ellsberg, author of The Education of Millionaires: Everything You Won't Learn in College About How to Be Successful
“Kate is presenting us with an intelligent and fun strategy that will bring more abundance and love into the world . . . embrace it and pass it on.”
Colleen Saidman Yee, yoga teacher and owner of Yoga Shanti
“Finally, a book to place money and finances in their proper perspective. This is not in praise of or to demonize money but to let it be the tool for supporting the joy of living, a truly modern and yogic view of where the puzzle piece of finance fits with the soul.”
Rodney Yee, yoga teacher
Money: A Love Story is a beautiful and insightful guide to finding true prosperity from the inside out.”
Marie Forleo, entrepreneur, MarieForleo.com
“Kate Northrup has written a seminal book on money. Building on the past body of knowledge around consciousness and money, Kate has taken the conversation to a whole new level. Having worked with thousands of people around their relationship to money, I know how disempowered most people are and how much suffering is caused by unexamined beliefs in this area of life. I intend to recommend this book not only to all my students, but also to anyone who has not yet found the relationship they want with money. Beware! This practical and powerful book will change your life.”
Gail Straub, author and co-founder of the Empowerment Institute
“As an entrepreneur I have had my own very personal journey with money. As someone who works with business owners I watch 99% of my clients struggle with the subconscious relationship that they have with their finances. What I love about Kate’s book is that it takes the fear of talking about money away. In an extremely simple and real way you evaluate your relationship, fears, and desires as they relate to money and actually make a plan to be living in the financial reality that you want for life. Love that!”
— Carissa Reiniger, CEO and founder of Silver Lining Ltd.
Money: A Love Story gets right to the core of what money is all about: worth. And even more specifically, self-worth. Read this book and learn to not only be smarter about money and have a more loving relationship with it, but also to have a more loving relationship with yourself.”
Amanda Steinberg, CEO and founder of DailyWorth.com

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'll be honest, I picked up this book largely intending to shred it. I've never known exactly what this "financial freedom" stuff is all about, but I've always assumed it to be a bunch of hooey. There are, after all, only two ways out of debt - earn more or spend less. Money doesn't grow on trees nor can we wish more of it into our pockets. And there's only so much you can cut before you're living in a cardboard box eating out of dumpsters. And that doesn't sound very free.

Upon starting this book, my impressions were confirmed. The steps for achieving financial freedom appear to be:

1. Get yourself born to very successful doctor parents.
2. Have your mother write a best-selling book.
3. Go to college on your parents' dime.
4. Use your mother's reputation and connections to start a "network marketing business" (otherwise known as "hit up your family, friends and acquaintances for money business").
5. Live rent-free in an apartment owned by your mother while running up lots of debt.
6. Use that same network (the one built on your mother's connections, while telling people you've ended your professional relationship with your mother) to build a wellness coaching and motivational speaking business telling people how you got out of debt.

Reminds me of a story of a man reading a magazine where he happens upon an ad which promises the secret to riches if you just send in $100 and a self-addressed stamped envelope. So the man sends in his money and his SASE and in a couple weeks the envelope comes back. Inside is a single sheet of paper with the words "Do exactly what I'm doing".

So I was pretty set to hate this book and rip it to shreds. But then a funny thing starts to happen.

Most of the concepts weren't new to me, and I was prepared for that. Just couldn't handle the author's tone. Had to force myself to keep focusing on the essence of what she was saying and manufacture compassion. She would have been better off just giving advice as a successful woman. Instead, she keeps referring back to "her story" which she apparently thinks will qualify her to advise people. But her story is basically that she was born into wealth, never wanted for anything, let her mom support her until that didn't feel good anymore, and carried some credit card debt for a while - all while she was still making six figures. (gasp!) It just didn't resonate with me. I left the book in my laundry room downstairs.

I wanted to like this book. Like the author, I, too, love reading financial advice books. Your Money or Your Life: 9 Steps to Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence: Revised and Updated for the 21st Century, The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America's Wealthy, and The Total Money Makeover: Classic Edition: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness have all helped me get out of debt, build an emergency fund, and contribute monthly to my IRA. I have a much better handle on my money now than I did five years ago, and yet I still enjoy a good book about finances--and especially a good financial come-back story.

Unfortunately, Money, A Love Story fell flat to me. It isn't that Northrup gives terrible money advice all the way through. In fact, she gives some really good advice at parts...but it is mostly regurgitated from other books! And even the advice that is more about encouragement and self-help (and less specifically about money) still originates from self-help books she's read and seminars she has attended. She quotes so often from other books that her own book reads like a college essay: yes, there are a lot of ideas in there, but they aren't original to her, and she hasn't added anything unique to the discussion.

I suppose other readers might argue that Northrup shares her personal story, and THAT is what makes this book unique.

This unoriginal mish mash of new age concepts and well worn financial advice contributes nothing new. Financial challenges stress almost everyone. Whether one is saddled with student debt, mortgages, living and medical expense, it is important to understand and appreciate money and make it work for you.

The author, a child of privilege, shares her own story. It did not resonate with me. It is easy to dance across the tightrope when a net is in place. I didn't care for the smug tone and frankly, she is more connected than gifted or wise. Her suggestions for increasing income including mlms and selling unused designer duds on consignment are insensitive to the 99 percent who don't have any unused duds designer or otherwise and have been victimized by mlm schemes before. On the positive side, it is not a complex book and some of the charts and tools are helpful.

For those who are intrigued with creating their own money love store, I would suggest looking at Financial Alchemy: Twelve Months of Magic and Manifestation (Volume 1) Rae developed the "money honey" concept and seems to do it successfully. For those who are interested in metaphysical approaches, I suggest RealityShifters Guide to High Energy Money orThe Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment or
