it was ok

Fascinating anecdotes about people the author interviewed. You get to see into their financial lives and how money (or lack of it) can make life unhappy. However her analysis seemed unsupported and her conclusions personal, not academic. One interesting chapter covered Washington politicians and the fact that they don't get much beyond their salary so unless they are independently wealthy, it is a struggle to cover rent, their home in their home state, and travel expenses to see family. Her recommendations at the end are very feel good but not groundbreaking.
