Your money and your life
Your Money or Your Life by Vicki RobinI could and will read and re-read this book, not for its literary value but for its simple explanations of concrete ways to observe your own connection with the material world. Whether or not you fully practice its program, it is the sanest and most convincing account of the importance of financial savvy for those of us who proclaimed, Money and fancy material things dont matter to me - so why should I try to manage my finances? Its message from ten years ago rings truer today than it did now, and I think my own generation will even more appreciate its message. I’m not a big self-help book reader. Yet, just the act of seriously studying this book and hence becoming intentional with my finances has relieved me of debt, anxiety about money, made me more in touch with what is really valuable and joyful to me, and inspired me to look toward a career as a financial counselor. I would recommend this book to all my friends for it surely has lessons for everyone!
