Your money problems are a consequence of the relationship you have with your money. A problem in that relationship is what's really holding you back. In this compelling book, The Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge, you will learn the breakthrough approach that is transforming lives-a method which The Wall Street Journal hails as "an innovative effort that combines experiential therapy with nuts-and-bolts financial planning.
Ebenezer Scrooge would seem an unlikely source from which to glean financial wisdom: He was a wealthy man who kept his living quarters cold to save shillings and lived a reclusive existence because he worried someone would take his money. However, Dickens' classic tale of how Scrooge found his true course in life is a powerful model we all can benefit from today.
Unlike other financial planning books that focus narrowly on the "dollar and cents" of money, The Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge is an easy read. Written for the layperson, this book provides advice that is simple, transformational, and timeless. Through the process they've used successfully with their clients, the authors will show you how to recognize ways unconscious Money Scripts may keep you trapped; how to deal with the relationship between your net worth and your self-worth; how to discover your authentic goals and values; how to permanently change self-destructive money behaviors; and, through 5 essentials of financial prosperity, how to leave a family legacy of financial wellness.

Sort order. I really enjoyed this book as it interestingly married two loves of mine: financial therapy and Dickens. I think the only thing that led me to not give it a 5 was the lack of money scripts given I think some readers would struggle with know theirs without a list to work from as well as its dearth of actual quotes from 'A Christmas Carol'. This book uses the example of Ebenezer Scrooge to really drive home the concept of how one's beliefs or scripts about money can dictate their entire existe I really enjoyed this book as it interestingly married two loves of mine: financial therapy and Dickens.
This book uses the example of Ebenezer Scrooge to really drive home the concept of how one's beliefs or scripts about money can dictate their entire existence. I appreciated that this was written by authors with both financial and counseling backgrounds. It's incredibly easy to read, but gives lots of food for thought. It definitely made me look forward to reading the novel this book uses so well in the holiday season as well.
Ugh, I hated this book. It's condescending.

The exercises are helpful, but made me paint myself in a harsher light than needed. My therapist had to work to show me that the version of myself this book brought out is an old version Kim 1. The current version of me Kim 2. This book made me feel like I'm a lot more effed up than I am. If this book gets recommended to you, read it, and do the exercises, but Ugh, I hated this book.
If this book gets recommended to you, read it, and do the exercises, but check any revelations you have about yourself with your therapist. Very accessible book about how we pick up messages and scripts as kids that subconsciously affect our behaviors and decisions as we move through life. Loved the creative approach and insights in this book, and even more the practical application.
It helped me clarify my perceptions and shift some subconscious blocks. Klontz has insights for the haves as well as the have nots. Obviously, Scrooge had plenty of money, but his ingrained perceptions ruined the quality of his life until the ghosts arrived and shared their ghoulish guidance. And there were options for Cratchit that could have greatly improved his situation long before Scrooge's trans Loved the creative approach and insights in this book, and even more the practical application.
And there were options for Cratchit that could have greatly improved his situation long before Scrooge's transformation. The book"s strength is the gift of awareness of our own money scrips as we examine the past, present and future. After identifying our own perceptions, there are suggestions for re-scripting, motivation, and transformative actions. Feb 03, Amy rated it did not like it. The title was very mileading for me.
I wish they had actually included more of Dicken's words and descriptions of Ebenezer Scrooge. It was a disappointment. Shelves: ownbook , nonfiction , reading-challenge , gradschool. It's a quick read and some good information for identifying "money scripts" which are things that we think about money that may be true but not always. It goes through the process alongside the process that Scrooge went through. While we think of Scrooge as an old miserly man, in the end, he's not because he goes through the process and changes his money scripts.

Apr 02, Judith rated it liked it. Really a 3. A client gave me this book to read.
It is about money scripts we learned growing up in our family and how these scripts can effect our views of money as adults. As a former psycholgist, I thought it was quite well done. Nov 09, J. Sessions rated it really liked it. This book will help you identify which ones are correct and which ones aren't helpful.
