This unique and fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money - earning it, spending it, and giving it away - can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values, and the essence of prosperity. Lynne Twist, a global activist and fundraiser, has raised more than $150 million for charitable causes. Through personal stories and practical advice, she demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity, guilt, and burden with experiences of sufficiency, freedom, and purpose. In this Nautilus Award-winning book, Twist shares from her own life, a journey illuminated by remarkable encounters with the richest and poorest.

I'm not sure why The author wasn't chosen to narrate this title as she is an excellent speaker. The chosen narrator however over-annunciates each word splitting each syllable so that they often sound like separate words. The result is very robotic and clunky. I found it quite difficult to listen to and was very, very disappointed. I like the content however. But I would have got more out of this book had it been better narrated.
