The Money Book That's Making a Buzz … The Today Show, Naomi Judd's New Morning, Dr. Laura, NPR, The Wall St. Journal
"The process changed the way I look at everything—my own life, my relationships with others, and my understanding of the world." That is how Wynonna Judd described her work with coauthors Ted and Brad Klontz, using the principles outlined in The Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge.
As the United States braces for an economic crash, the time-tested Financial Wisdom of Ebenezer Scrooge will help anyone stand on solid financial footing, securing prosperity for themselves and a healthy financial legacy for their family.
Almost universally—regardless of income bracket or upbringing—people suffer from the same money affliction, and the real problem isn't money at all. The real problem—and the one that is overlooked in financial planning seminars and glossed over in other wealth-building books—is the relationship people have with their money.
For the first time in paperback comes the breakthrough method from noted psychologists Ted and Brad Klontz and financial planner Rick Kahler, which The Wall Street Journal hailed as "innovative," combining "experiential therapy with nuts-and-bolts financial planning." Their proven method, which was publicized in the American Psychological Association magazine, helps people recognize their dysfunctional mind-sets about money. Mind-sets like "It's not nice to talk about money," "I'll never have enough money to be secure," "I deserve to spend money," and "If you are good, the universe will give you what you need." By culling timeless truths from the classic Dickens's tale and combining them with sound financial and psychological principles, the authors give anyone the tools they need to transform their relationship with money and break through their barriers to wealth and financial freedom.
A look at the psychological barriers to financial success and how to create a better financial future
When it comes to our relationship with money, we are in the Stone Age. Despite the relentless barrage of information and warnings from financial experts, the average American is in terrible financial shape. It turns out that human beings are just not wired to do the right things around money—such as saving and not overspending. That’s why financial success is so difficult to attain. When it comes to our financial instincts, we are no more evolved than our ancestors who hunted the Woolly Mammoth 400,000 years ago.
Recent findings from the field of financial psychology could help the many Americans who know what they need to do but just can’t seem to make it happen. If you fall into this category, consider Money Mammoth: Evolve Your Money Mindset and Avoid Financial Extinction.
This book looks at financial well-being from a psychological and evolutionary perspective. It reveals the obstacles that prevent people from taking their first critical steps towards financial wellness. It examines how our instincts and beliefs about money influence our financial behaviors. It explores money beliefs, how they develop, and how they drive our money behaviors
As the world’s leading experts in financial psychology, authors Dr. Brad Klontz, Dr. Ed Horwitz, and Dr. Ted Klontz can help you:

In Money Mammoth, the authors reveal the secrets to harnessing the power of your psychology to reach your financial goals.
As Drs. Brad and Ted Klontz, a father and son team of pioneers in the emerging field of financial psychology explain, our disordered relationships with money aren’t our fault. They don’t stem from a lack of knowledge or a failure of will. Instead, they are a product of subconscious beliefs and thought patterns, rooted in our childhoods, that are so deeply ingrained in us, they shape the way we deal with money our entire adult lives. But we are not powerless. By looking deep into ourselves and our pasts, we can learn to recognize these negative and self-defeating patterns of thinking, and replace them with better, healthier ones.
Drawing on their decades of experience helping patients resolve their troubling issues with money, the Klontzes and describe the twelve most common “money disorders” - like financial infidelity, money avoidance, compulsive shopping, financial enabling, and more — and explain how we can learn to identify them, understand their root causes, and ultimately overcome them.
So whether you want to learn how to make better financial decision, have more open communication with your spouse or kids about the family finances, or simply be better equipped to deal with the challenges of these tough economic times, this book will help you repair your dysfunctional relationship with money and live a healthier financial life.
Money-related stress dates as far back as concepts of money itself. Formerly it may have waxed and waned in tune with the economy, but today more individuals are experiencing financial mental anguish and self-destructive behavior regardless of bull or bear markets, recessions or boom periods. From a fringe area of psychology, financial therapy has emerged to meet increasingly salient concerns.
Financial Therapy is the first full-length guide to the field, bridging theory, practical methods, and a growing cross-disciplinary evidence base to create a framework for improving this crucial aspect of clients' lives. Its contributors identify money-based disorders such as compulsive buying, financial hoarding, and workaholism, and analyze typical early experiences and the resulting mental constructs ("money scripts") that drive toxic relationships with money. Clearly relating financial stability to larger therapeutic goals, therapists from varied perspectives offer practical tools for assessment and intervention, advise on cultural and ethical considerations, and provide instructive case studies. A diverse palette of research-based and practice-based models meets monetary mental health issues with well-known treatment approaches, among them:
- Cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused therapies.
- Collaborative relationship models.
- Experiential approaches.
- Psychodynamic financial therapy.
- Feminist and humanistic approaches.
A text that serves to introduce and define the field as well as plan for its future, Financial Therapy is an important investment for professionals in psychotherapy and counseling, family therapy, financial planning, and social policy.
