Description
Praise for Money & Happiness
"Laura Rowley makes us all understand the money-happiness connection in our own lives so that we spend our time and our efforts wisely. She gets to the heart of why money can bring feelings of stress, joy, and freedom, and Rowley offers insight that every reader can use to make smarter decisions that will lead to living a rich life in every possible definition of the term."
--Lucy Danziger, Editor in Chief, Self magazine
"This is a wry and companionable guide to getting your finances in better sync with your values, and who wouldn't be enriched by that?"
--Melinda Henneberger, Contributing Editor, Newsweek
"Money and Happiness takes cold, hard, financial information and warms it up through the voice of your best friend. You'll find out how to achieve your life dreams, and avoid money nightmares. The cost of this book may be the best investment you'll ever make."
--Kevin McKinley, CFP, author of Make Your Kid a Millionaire and host of public radio's On Your Money
"Let Laura Rowley guide you to a rational and rewarding life by helping you re-order your approach to your financial well-being. This book covers all the dimensions you need to know about how to plan properly for your reality. She teaches that you need not be loaded to be happy. And she shows you how to set, then achieve, your goals. For your sanity, Rowley is a welcome antidote to the wave of materialism washing over our culture."
--Allan Dodds Frank, Bloomberg Television.
