Sue Baker's view...

John Armstrong looks at our relationship with money, for most of us it’s too little, for a few it’s too much – but how much is enough, how do we relate to money, the spending and saving of it, can we do harm or good with our money, are we really grown-up with money matters?

Synopsis

How to Worry Less About Money by John Armstrong, School of Life

Our relationship with money is one that lasts a lifetime. It can be as important as family life, as competitive as work, and as exciting and secretive as love. Yet books about money tend to take one of two routes: a) how to get more, or b) how to deal with less. This book turns these questions upside down, and looks not at money itself, but at the way we view it. How does money drive us? How does it frighten us? And how can it help us make sense of who we are? Money is too important a part of life for us not to worry about, but by approaching it differently, we can change the way we perceive its worth. With surprising and enlightening new insights, How to Worry Less About Money will help you realise what material wealth really means.
