Deborah L. Price. New World Library (PGW, dist.), $14.95 trade paper (224p) ISBN 978-1-60868-127-3
Money Coaching Institute founder Price (Money Magic) is back with another spiritually based guide to revamping the reader’s personal connection with money, this time as part of a couple. Money issues are a major source of conflict in our relationships, increasingly so as the economic climate worsens. Price argues for creating a healthy, truly intimate relationship by working toward financial openness and “transparency about... financial wants, needs, and expectations.” It’s a tall order, but necessary to achieve fulfillment, writes Price. The author, who comes from a poor background herself, discusses the psychological aspects of money issues that arise in childhood and form patterns that affect future relationships. Using worksheets and sympathetically presented tips, Price leads her readers through negotiating money conflicts, leaving room for gratitude, and “the Big Money Topics”: spending vs. saving, debt, and mingling money. This comprehensive and inspiring book shows readers how to openly and honestly communicate about money. Agent: Janet Rosen, Sheree Bykofsky Associates. (Nov.)
