A wise and inspiring exploration of the connection between money and leading a fulfilling life This compelling and fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money earning it, spending it, and giving it away can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values, and the essence of prosperity Through personal stories and practical advice, global activist Lynne Twist demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity, guilt, and burden with experiences of sufficiency, freedom, and purpose Twist takes an honest and critical look at the extraordinary power that money wields over our lives and its profound and often destructive influence on our self image and relationships In a consumer society that glorifies the pitch, the sale, and the insatiable appetite for as a measure of self worth, The Soul of Money asks us to step back, to examine our relationship with money, to assess our connection with core human values, and to change this relationship and, in so doing, to transform our lives....

The Soul of Money: Reclaiming the Wealth of Our Inner Resources Reviews
I loved this book because it brings up a needed discussion on two opposing and conflicting values over money.
This book is Awesome and should be on the required reading list.
The Soul of Money is in my top 5 most important reads of all time. This book gives you a new set of lenses with which to view yourself and your relationship with money.
This book isn’t for everyone. No book is. This book, though housed with some insights, was not for me. In my opinion, the audience meant to read The Soul of Money is an audience of wealth, those who already have money and are trying to come to terms with that very wealth, or perhaps where to focus their money e.g. charity, philanthropic ventures, etc. This book is not meant for the middle person, the one who is neither at the bottom nor the top, someone like myself, perhaps even you. It does not offer useful tools designed to help you acquire wealth, better manage your current finances, or any tool on money management for that matter. There is no financial advice here. This book is about the experiences--eventually becoming stories--that the author had over the years in fundraising. It speaks to what those with whom she worked learned about themselves, their perceived state of being (or affairs), and how to shift from a mentality of scarcity to that of sufficiency. See, that’s the part that drew me in--scarcity vs sufficiency--leading me to believe that the book offered something that helped one go from the former to the latter. Not the case. My overall view: If you want to read about various stories that may or may not inspire you in a compassionate way, go for it; however, if you’re looking to learn more about how to navigate your own financial situation, be that to acquire greater monetary outcome or to manage your current financial situation, this isn’t the book. Again, this is for people who already have money and perhaps need a bit of inspiration as to where they can contribute. This is not meant for those who do not have the wealth that allows them to give it away.
