I really enjoyed this book as it interestingly married two loves of mine: financial therapy and Dickens. I think the only thing that led me to not give it a 5 was the lack of money scripts given (I think some readers would struggle with know theirs without a list to work from) as well as its dearth of actual quotes from 'A Christmas Carol'. This book uses the example of Ebenezer Scrooge to really drive home the concept of how one's beliefs (or scripts) about money can dictate their entire existe ...more
Loved the creative approach and insights in this book, and even more the practical application. It helped me clarify my perceptions and shift some subconscious blocks.

Klontz has insights for the haves as well as the have nots. Obviously, Scrooge had plenty of money, but his ingrained perceptions ruined the quality of his life until the ghosts arrived and shared their ghoulish guidance. And there were options for Cratchit that could have greatly improved his situation long before Scrooge's trans
Read this purely because one of the authors was my Social Studies teacher in high school. It had some good points, was a fast read, and I enjoyed it.
The title was very mileading for me. I thought this book would actually have clear, concise principals for investing/saving/getting the most out of your money; rather, it was a self-help type book for helping you determine what money "script" you subscribe to and why it's wrong. I wish they had actually included more of Dicken's words and descriptions of Ebenezer Scrooge. It was a disappointment.
It's a quick read and some good information for identifying "money scripts" which are things that we think about money that may be true but not always. It goes through the process alongside the process that Scrooge went through. While we think of Scrooge as an old miserly man, in the end, he's not because he goes through the process and changes his money scripts. Recommended!
Really a 3.5. A client gave me this book to read. It is about money scripts we learned growing up in our family and how these scripts can effect our views of money as adults.

As a former psycholgist, I thought it was quite well done.
We have all grown up with scripts we've learned/taught ourselves about money. This book will help you identify which ones are correct and which ones aren't helpful. A book I frequently recommend to my clients.
Principles to transform your relationship with money. A look at money scripts we carry through life, where they come from and how to clear them. Quite interesting.
