Emotional Currency is one of those books that makes you think; I wish I had this book years ago. A book I certainly needed when as a young adult I got a hold of that first credit card. Levinson explains how for centuries our society shut out the female from building any kind of relationship with money. Causing woman to be left in the dark when it came to their household finances. Levinson teaches us how the woman's view it so much differently than a mans when it comes to money and why. Explaining how money is viewed in our society in general and by other cultures is a real eye opener. Her examples on how women attach emotion and how easy it is for us to do so, make sense. She teaches the reader to be aware of how we as women are more prone to take our first experiences with money and use that as a template in our future relationships with money. Carrying this unnecessary baggage can be very destructive, especially if our parents had struggles with money either in their relationships with others or in their own marriage.
How do you feel when you think of money? Whether you fear money or are confident with it. Levinson has lessons for you. Some women hold shame or pride when it comes to their money. Others only know anger and hurt. What relationship do you have with money? Levinson has studied these issues for many years. I found very helpful the exercises and questions throughout Emotional Currency's chapters that help you pinpoint those areas you need help with the most. Her book also contains real life stories from women who she has worked with in her workshops and in her psychotherapy practice. I found emotional Currency very refreshing, certainly interesting and most importantly life changing.
