One of our nation’s leading financial advisors and the “Soul Authority on Money Management” reveals that while emotions can make financial decisions difficult, our emotional relationship with our money can also lead to not just greater wealth and financial security but amazing personal growth as well.

As a financial advisor for the past twenty-five years, Susan McCarthy has firsthand knowledge of the surprising degree to which emotion can govern important financial transactions. But, time and again, she also has seen her clients emerge from challenging financial situations with a newfound sense of purpose in their lives. Says McCarthy: “The world of money is a world of emotion; a stage on which we play out all of our dramas. The lessons it has to teach us go well beyond the financial. They reach deep into our emotional and even our spiritual lives. Money is one of our greatest teachers.”

According to McCarthy, for many of us the world of money reaches deep into our psyches, setting off fears and uncertainties we often don’t even know we harbor. In The Value of Money, she gives readers the tools they need to see past this tumultuous aspect of money to achieve not just greater wealth and financial security but personal insights as well. Presenting various “money types” she has observed in her work, McCarthy helps readers to determine what type (or combination of types) they are and how each typically responds to life’s most challenging financial events—taking financial responsibility for the care of a child or elderly parent, the death of a spouse, retirement— and how to turn around any self-defeating responses to the events.

This wise book outlines a path not just to a richer future financially but spiritually as well.
