The Secret Life of Money leads readers on a fascinating journey to uncover the sources of our monetary desires and, by understanding why money has the power to obsess us, free ourselves from destructive patterns and discover riches of the soul. This wide-ranging treatment of how money secretly influences our lives includes chapters on the many forms of money, why money is so easily worshipped, why money sometimes feels more important than life, hoarding money, the source of riches, inheritance, and the stock market. Crawford, a teller of entertaining tales, gathers stories and myths from around the world that help us understand why money is so much more than the useful tool that we may think it to be.
