The Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge

5 Principles to Transform Your Relationship with Money

The Money Book That's Making a Buzz … The Today Show, Naomi Judd's New Morning, Dr. Laura, NPR, The Wall St. Journal 

"The process changed the way I look at everything—my own life, my relationships with others, and my understanding of the world."  That is how Wynonna Judd described her work with coauthors Ted and Brad Klontz, using the principles outlined in The Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge.

As the United States braces for an economic crash, the time-tested Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge will help anyone stand on solid financial footing, securing prosperity for themselves and a healthy financial legacy for their family.  

Almost universally—regardless of income bracket or upbringing—people suffer from the same money affliction, and the real problem isn't money at all. The real problem—and the one that is overlooked in financial planning seminars and glossed over in other wealth-building books—is the relationship people have with their money

For the first time in paperback comes the breakthrough method from noted psychologists Ted and Brad Klontz and financial planner Rick Kahler, which The Wall Street Journal hailed as  "innovative," combining "experiential therapy with nuts-and-bolts financial planning." Their proven method, which was publicized in the American Psychological Association magazine, helps people recognize their dysfunctional mind-sets about money. Mind-sets like "It's not nice to talk about money," "I'll never have enough money to be secure," "I deserve to spend money," and "If you are good, the universe will give you what you need."  By culling timeless truths from the classic Dickens's tale and combining them with sound financial and psychological principles, the authors give anyone the tools they need to transform their relationship with money and break through their barriers to wealth and financial freedom.

The Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge packs a powerful punch. I found it to be one of the most entertaining 'money psychology' books I've read.--Gerri Detweiler, host, Everyday Wealth Radio

This rather unique book deals not only with net worth but self-worth. It will help many people learn how to see and live with money not just for money's sake but as a way to free their inner-selves with a guiltless freedom borne of financial security.--Steve Bucci,  President, Money Management International Financial Education Foundation and syndicated "Debt Adviser" columnist
