I was recently sent the book The Secret Language of Money: How to Make Smarter Financial Decisions and Live a Richer Life to review/giveaway here on Little People Wealth. I must say, this is one of the best books I have read in a long time.
Most financial books are boring. I love learning from them, but they aren’t exactly entertaining. This book is both entertaining and educating. The Secret Language of Money, written by David Krueger, is about why we do the things we do with our finances.
The numbers are simple. What’s complicated is what we do with money. We use money to soothe our feelings and buy respect, to show how much we care or how little. We don’t simply earn, save, and spend money, we flirt with it, crave it, and scorn it; we punish and reward ourselves with it. Without realizing it, we give money meaning it doesn’t really have.
This book gives great insight as to WHY you do the things you do with money. How do you feel about it? Once you can figure out your faults they are easier to fix! There are worksheets included in the book to help you determine which categories you fall under. There are examples of everything!
I learned so much about myself while reading this book. I highly recommend it!
