This compelling and fundamentally liberating book shows us that examining our attitudes toward money earning it, spending it, and giving it away can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values, and the essence of prosperity. Through personal stories and practical advice, global activist Lynne Twist demonstrates how we can replace feelings of scarcity, guilt, and burden with experiences of sufficiency, freedom, and purpose.

Great book, but questionable 'condition'

This review is less about the book content and more about the advertised condition of the book I purchased. It was labeled as 'very good' condition, and at best, I would call it 'acceptable.' More than half of the pages in the book are marked with pencil underlines or some other mark. I get it...I mark up books all the time. I would have liked a more accurate description of the condition of the book. Regardless, I'll keep the book...and erase as I read...

How to Use Money In a Way that is Consistent with your Deepest Values?

Twist's chief insight in "The Soul of Money" is that money isn't inherently bad or good, but that used wisely, it has the power to transform both us and the world. The root of our problem with money , Twist suggests, is a fallacious mind set of scarcity, the belief that everything is in limited supply - not just money, but material goods, time, rest, exercise, power and love. It is rarely the actual amount of what you have, but how you use it, and appreciate it, that makes the difference in your prosperity. Whereas the mind set of scarcity drives competition, the mind set of sufficiency fosters collaboration; in which everyone's unique ability to contribute is recognised, valued, and where the outcome is win-win. Twist views money as a resource that follows like water, circulating around the world and living diversed consequences in its wake. In this context, fundrising is about helping people to engage in their greatness through the effective flow of money. Money should help people to raise themselves to a level of self-sufficiency through a partnership based on mutual respect. In this way, our awareness of the healing effects of money is heightened.

Read this book

Well worth the effort in trying to get this book - a very forward thinker and ideas are articulated well. The world needs more thinking like this.

HAVE MORE, GIVE MORE MONEY - read this to find out how!

It one delightful, entertaining and meaningful book, Lynne Twist explains how to lead an abundant life that benefits you, your family AND the world. I read the hardcover edition more than three years and am still benefitting from it today. If this book were required reading, the world would be a place that works for everyone.

This book can help us change the soul of our nation/world

The Soul of Money is fully worth the praise it is getting and far more. Rooted in sufficiency and backed by moving stories situated throughout the world, this book will inspire you, enlighten you, give you hope, and certainly will make you cry. If this book can help those of us who have been siting on the fence looking for the motivation to invest our souls in the transformation of this world, join those who are engaged in this effort, I believe that we truly can change the world. I believe that Lynn's message is one to help move all of us into activism, whether it is quiet or out there. My personal commitment is to engage. Lynne asked me at her book signing during a conversation if I had invested in the Pachamama Alliance. I had been taking the newsletter but did not believe I was in a position to participate. I had to say no and I felt small knowing that I could have but did not participate. Oh I had my excuses, many of us do. I made a commitment to invest and I did. First a small donation to the Pachamama Alliance; then a visit to the adoption agency from which I was blessed with my little girl from India; next calls to NGO's working in the Telangana in India looking for ways to donate my time; and finally a commitment to bring Lynne to Yamhill County Oregon for a fundraiser, workshop and a book signing. Yes I am moving out of my comfort zone of non-action and it is based on Lynne and her inspiring message. Please read this book, yes, but more than that, please join me in taking action to transform our nation and world.Thank you Lynne for your great work though out the world and for funneling your experiences and insights into this great book.

Read it and your relationship with money will change. You will be stunned by what you did not know about yourself and your attitides toward prosperty. You will be inspired and empowered to focus the rays of money's transformational energy in ways that will bring you prosperty on many levels.John Perkins, author of "The World Is As You Dream It" and "Shapeshifting"
