Overview

"An inspired, utterly fascinating book….A book for everyone who would like to make the world a better place."—Jane Goodall
This unique and fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money—earning it, spending it, and giving it away—can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values, and the essence of prosperity.
Lynne Twist, a global activist and fundraiser, has raised more than $150 million for charitable causes. Through personal stories and practical advice, she demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity, guilt, and burden with experiences of sufficiency, freedom, and purpose. In this Nautilus Award-winning book, Twist shares from her own life, a journey illuminated by remarkable encounters with the richest and poorest, from the famous (Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama) to the anonymous but unforgettable heroes of everyday life.

Editorial Reviews

The Sunday Express
This is the best book I have ever read about values, money and abundance. It makes you look at . . . these things from a new perspective.— Lynne Franks
Vicki Robin
“Lynne's wisdom is the precise healing message about money needed in this time.”
Rachel Naomi Remens
“Everyone will get value out of Lynne's message.”
Lynne Franks - The Sunday Express
“This is the best book I have ever read about values, money and abundance. It makes you look at . . . these things from a new perspective.”
Library Journal
An international activist and fund-raiser, Twist urges readers to discover a path to personal and financial freedom by confronting issues that each of us has regarding money. Using the vehicles of personal stories and practical advice, she explains how we can live fully and joyfully by learning to understand and embrace the flow of money through our lives. After examining their relationship with money, readers will often be able to transform and enrich all aspects of their lives. Twist developed her ideas after encountering the richest and poorest, the famous and the anonymous, while fund-raising in her charity work. Sample chapters include "Scarcity: The Great Lie," "The Power of Conservation," and "Creating a Legacy of Enough," and a list of organizations with addresses and URLs concludes the volume. Twist's New Age slant may put off readers accustomed to a less spiritual approach to personal finance, but others may find that she effectively addresses a basic ambivalence toward money that has been holding them back. Though this is an optional purchase for academic collections, most public libraries will want to add. [The Library of Congress catalogs this book under "money-psychological effects."-Ed.]-Susan C.

Unlike many books in a similar category, this one is not about the having or keeping of money.Surprisingly,Lynne Twist writes about our relationship with money and the very fundamental way in which this relationship shapes our view of life in general.Sometimes a tough message,this one may make a few squirm as Lynne reaches inside us and asks some questions that can alter your view of everthing.This book,while its title portends a look into money,turns out to be a look into one's self and the way we see the world.If you are drawn to self-relfection you will not be disappointed.
