The Money Book - Review and Giveaway!

I recently had the opportunity to read "The Money Book" by Rosally Saltsman.  Before I started reading this, I assumed it was going to be another one of those "10 Ways to Make Money" or "Get Rich Quick" kind of books.

Boy was I wrong, and it was nice to be pleasantly surprised.

This ebook concentrated more on our attitudes toward money and what money truly is - a tool.  As I read through the book, I continued to evaluate and re-evaluate the way I looked at money and my feelings toward it.  The author discusses preparedness, thankfulness and living within one's means.  And even though I said this isn't another one of those "Ways to Get Rich" type of books, there are tips to stay out of debt, ways to save money and even ways to make money included.  But the bulk of this book cuts right to the heart of the matter, our attitudes.

I plan on reading and re-reading "The Money Book" every few years or so - that's how much I liked it.

Now if only we could get our government to read this book....... (and that is as political as you will ever see me get here at HC).

  1. I'd love a copy of this book because quite frankly I am not so good at the money thing, which is why it is good I married a guy who is good at the money thing. In order to be a better wife, I guess I should work on this even more, huh?

  15. I'd like to read this and share it with my husband. Our attitudes towards money can be very far apart sometimes, and perhaps reading this book together could help us realign them.
