Profound but a bit long-winded,
This review is from: The Seven Stages of Money Maturity: Understanding the Spirit and Value of Money in Your Life (Paperback)
"Seven Stages" seriously challenged my view of and relationship to money. I bought this book after reading a profile of the author in the FT, where he explained his belief that "life is about finding out what is profoundly important to you." Money management isn't just about scrimping and saving but also about giving us the freedom so that it can be spent in a way that is important to us. But he does rabbits on for a good 350 pages and the message could have been delivered in 150 pages. If it had been, I suspect it would have been a best seller. A real shame. I hope he writes a condensed version to follow up. Neither am I a new age Buddhist so I got frustrated with some of his wishy washy spiritual passages. But I would still recommend this book to everyone I know because it could change your life.
