"Here's the book every woman (and most men) need: a clear,
thoughtful, and beautifully written guide for how to cope with the
myriad emotions caused by money. Kate Levinson shows how money is
both mercilessly public and intimately personal, stirring up our
deepest feelings about independence, status, attractiveness, and
the terrifying confusion between net worth and self worth.
--Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor, author of Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future, Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy, University of California, Berkeley
"This is not just the best book about women and money that I
have ever read, it is the best book about money--beautifully
written, wise, accessible, practical, and profoundly healing. I
wish Kate had been my mother. Or my big sister. It would have
changed my whole life. Don't make another decision about money
until you've read it. Then read it again."
--Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, author of Kitchen Table Wisdom
"Kate Levinson's book shows how money permeates every nook and cranny of our inner mental and emotional world. Although written especially for women, it offers a warm, guiding hand to anyone seeking a healthy relationship to money and everything money touches."
--Jacob Needleman, author of Money and the Meaning of Life "Finally! A beautifully written, straightforward guide for women to better understand the opportunities, choices, and challenges of money. Reading Emotional Currency evoked many of my own emotional memories about money."
