How to Worry Less About Money

Pan Macmillan, May 10, 2012 - Self-Help - 160 pages

Break free of your destructive relationship with money, and learn how money can actually make you happy with How to Worry Less About Money.

Our relationship with money is one that lasts a lifetime, yet traditionally books on the subject tend to take one of two routes: a) how to get more, or b) how to deal with less.

John Armstrong turns these approaches upside down, and looks not at money itself, but at how we relate to it and the meaning we attach to it. How does it drive us and frighten us? Can it change the world for the better? And how much do we actually need?

Offering surprisingly helpful new insights and liberating advice, this book will encourage you to redefine your feelings about money, and ultimately enable you to discover what is really important to you in life.

Continue your self-help journey with other titles from The School of Life series: How to Stay Sane, How to Find Fulfilling Work and How to Change the World.
