This is a recommendation and not a review because I’ve been hired to review The Secret Language of Money: How to Make Smarter Financial Decisions and Live a Richer Life by David Krueger, M.D.
Briefly: It’s about the emotions surrounding money, and tells you how to start looking as money as money and not something else. It’s a simple statement, but a powerful one. How many people shop to make themselves feel better? And spend beyond their means? Bonus: the book is written in plain language with only a tint of “be empowered!” It’s not a blueprint to get out of debt, or a replacement for a financial planner. It shows why so many of us don’t view money as a means to acquire life essentials. It’s a trickery issue than most people think.
