Read an Excerpt

Is money freedom?

If your loved one gave you a very expensive anniversary gift that you hated, what would you do?

Your parents tell you that they are leaving most of their estate to your sibling(s) and much less to you. How do you handle it?

Your parents have just told you they are going to spend all the money they can before dying, and leave the remainder to charity. What do you say?

A good friend owes you money and has not paid you back for a while. It is not enough to break the bank, but enough to compromise the friendship.

How do you deal with it?

If your boyfriend never let you treat on a night out, how would you feel about it?

What is your definition of personally being debt free?

What minimum amount of money would make a real change in your lifestyle?

Do you act differently around rich people?

If a good friend came to you for financial help, what would you do?
