This is not just the best book about women and money that I have ever read, it is the best book about money. Beautifully written, wise, accessible, practical and profoundly healing. I wish Kate had been my mother. Or my big sister. It would have changed my whole life.
Don’t make another decision about money until you have read it. Then read it again.

Finally! A beautifully written, straight forward guide to understanding money. Reading Emotional Currency evoked many of my own emotional memories about money. The book underscores that for women money provides opportunities and choice.
Here’s the book every woman (and most men) need: a clear, thoughtful, and beautifully-written guide for how to cope with the myriad of emotions caused by money. Kate Levinson — practicing therapist and businesswoman –shows how money is both mercilessly public and intimately personal – stirring up our deepest feelings about dependence and independence, status, attractiveness, and terrifying confusion between net worth and self worth. Women in today’s economy are especially vulnerable because of gender biases in the workplace, patterns of parenting and upbringing that assume women do not “handle” financial matters well, and social norms that still disapprove of money-wise women. This book is a wise and important antidote.

We know that out there, money now enters into every pocket and corner of our contemporary culture. Kate Levinson’s book shows how it also permeates every nook and cranny of our inner mental and emotional world as well. Although written especially for women, it offers a warm, guiding hand to anyone seeking a healthy relationship to money and everything money touches.
