Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A great read, covers the root causes of over-shopping, from social pressures to psychological compulsions, also offers helpful tips & advice on living within one's means and overcoming urges to shop for shopping's sake.

Would recommend to anyone who doesn't seem to know wher their bank balance goes every month.

Also purchasing the book brought about one of life's ironic moments when, having just completed the purchase, I was presented by an advert offering me the chance to take an Amazon credit card(!) at only 16.9% interest. You can but smile :)

Yep I confess I have a shopping problem and this book has delped me get my life sorted. I have seen a rapid and major turn around in my finances. If its time you took a reality check, I recommend this book.

Yes it can be very american in places but it translates well. We overshop to fill up a need and we need to address that need before we end up in a mountain of debt. Slightly outdated now the credit crunch as hit but the woman doesn't claim to be psychic. The author does talk alot of sense though.

There is also a handy detachable card to put in your purse/wallet etc. Really cannot recommend highly enough.

My shopping habit had reduced by the time I was only half way through the book. You have to do the exercises for it to work, you have to be ready for and committed to change and you have to be ready to face up to the real reason you over-shop (which might be upsetting for some). If you shop too much and can't afford therapy as well read this book.

A great book for people addicted to shopping! It makes you think why you buy material objects, and relates it back to the psychology behind the shopping. Some good tips to avoid over spending. Well recommended.
