Summary

Break free of your destructive relationship with money, and learn how money can make you happy. Our relationship with money is one that lasts a lifetime. It can be as important as family life, as competitive as work, and as exciting and secretive as love. Yet books about money tend to take one of two routes: a) how to get more, or b) how to deal with less. This book turns these questions upside down, and looks not at money itself, but at the way we view it. How does money drive us? How does it frighten us? And how can it help us make sense of who we are?

Money is too important a part of life for us not to worry about, but by approaching it differently, we can change the way we perceive its worth. With surprising and enlightening new insights, How to Worry Less about Money will help you realise what material wealth really means.

Fascinating exploration

If you are looking for a book that tells you how to make money or how to survive with less money, this isn't that book. I think this expectation is possibly the reason that this book doesn't have higher ratings.

However, this book is a fascinating exploration of the relationship each individual has with money and why we do things like burying our heads in the sand rather than actually dealing with problems. Why the way we grow up might give us some unhelpful philosophies of money like "All money is evil" or "Having money will make me happy". How there is an internal argument in lots of us about wanting money but also wanting to help others and also wanting a fulfilling career etc.

If helps get you thinking about the 'why' of your current situation with money and how you can change your relationship with it to be closer to your ideal, or to figure out what that ideal actually is.

I definitely recommend it

Very interesting at times

Any additional comments?

There were some very interesting parts in this book but it was also a bit long winded at times.
