Overview

How happy would you be if you had all the money in the world?
 
The universal lament about money is that there is never enough. We spend endless hours trying to figure out ways to stretch every dollar and kicking ourselves whenever we spend too much or save too little. For all the stress and effort we put into every choice, why are most of us unhappy about our finances?
 
According to Laura Vanderkam, the key is to change your perspective. Instead of looking at money as a scarce resource, consider it a tool that you can use creatively to build a better life for yourself and the people you care about. Drawing on the latest happiness research as well as the stories of dozens of real people, Vanderkam offers a contrarian approach that forces us to examine our own beliefs, goals, and values.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“In this engaging and thought-provoking book, Laura Vanderkam explains how we can get the most happiness bang for our buck, right here and now, in the way we live our ordinary lives.”
—Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project

“If you have been awake for the last five years, then you know money is emotional. Most of the time we make these massively important decisions about how to earn it, spend it, and save it without pausing to think about how these decisions affect our lives. Laura Vanderkam brings a fresh dose of common sense to this madness by urging us to step back and reexamine the role money plays in our lives. Unlike most personal finance books, which leave you feeling stressed, All the Money in the World will empower you to live a truly richer life.”
—Carl Richards, author of The Behavior Gap: Simple Way to Stop Doing Dumb Things with Money

“With extensive research and rare insight, Laura Vanderkam reveals the financial mind-set that can lead to lasting happiness.”
—Zac Bissonnette, author of Debt-Free U and New York Times bestseller How to be Richer, Smarter, and Better-Looking Than Your Parents
