Overview


We have just come through the worst recession many of us have ever seen, and in times like these, it's tempting to think that just having more money would solve our problems. Indeed, it is also widely believed that how wealthy you are is a result of external factors, such as job promotions or good investments. But the surprising truth is that affluence is actually based on a certain way of thinking, one which has never before been discussed. Now, after years of working with clients of all backgrounds--including billionaires--psychologists Stephen Goldbart and Joan DiFuria reveal the little-known concept of "Affluence Intelligence," a mindset that makes people not just wealthy but deeply fulfilled.

The book includes a test to determine your Affluence Intelligence Quotient (AIQ), and a step-by-step program to raise that AIQ in just three months, for more money, more security, and more joy. Affluence Intelligence is for everyone who suspects they are devoting too much time to worrying about finances and too little time to living life.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Many people, when they learn how the wealthy attain and maintain their wealth, are also surprised to learn that the suddenly wealthy are often no happier than they were before they got rich. Here, financial psychologists Goldbart and DiFuria present key aspects to affluence, only some of which directly deal with money. Described within are methods to become more financially assertive, improve an overall relationship to money, and understand the key rules to being happier and more effective with current assets. Part of the authors’ thoughtful approach is to gauge one’s Affluence Intelligence Quotient, an evaluation of categories from resilience to optimism to overall financial competency. They’re not content to just teach financial effectiveness or give advice on saving and investing better—they’re interested in improving overall quality of life by encouraging people to assess their priorities (without judgment) and live their life in alignment with those priorities. Readers will find this to be a refreshing take on personal finance, psychology, and self-help. (Nov.) Agency: The Agency Group
From the Publisher
Curled Up with a Good Book
Affluence Intelligence lays out a three-month plan that leads to achievement of lofty goals, recognizing and living priorities, and enjoying a greater sense of possibility…Goldbart and Difuria have turned what sometimes seems an insurmountable obstacle into an enjoyable adventure. Affluence Intelligence helps readers get a grip on the worry and anxiety and transform fear into power. The program outlined here is concrete and perhaps revolutionary, with the potential to redirect an ages-old but dead-end paradigm into a satisfying and productive road trip to a worthy and fulfilling destination.”

Publishers Weekly, 11/7/11
“Readers will find this to be a refreshing take on personal finance, psychology, and self-help.”

San Francisco Book Review/Sacramento Book Review, 11/3/11
“Because the writing and the examples are approachable, especially during the current economic climate, Affluence Intelligence is a thorough tool that can help bring balance, focus, and perhaps happiness, instead of financial worries.”

Midwest Book Review, January 2012
“Recommended for any inspirational collection.”

Success, March 2012 “By addressing the psychology and practice of money management, Affluence Intelligence will help you assess your level of prosperity and create a plan for acquiring the kind of financial and emotional wealth you desire.”

    Outstanding, Insightful, Excellent- A Must Read!

    Affluence Intelligence is a life-changing book that deserves to be noticed. It provides realistic philosophical insight while detailing financial wisdom and understanding. You do not need to be wealthy to read this book! This will create a true understanding of yourself, your priorities, and your financial situation. This book helped me. I would strongly recommend it.
