Money and the Pursuit of Happiness: In Good Times And Bad

Ph. D. Richard Trachtman

Using the experiences and perspective of a skilled Life Coach, Marriage Counselor, and Psychotherapist and calling on an array of academic research, philosophy, literature, pop-culture, real-life stories and do-it-yourself exercises, MONEY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS is the only book of it's kind to explore the relationship between money and happiness in this particular way. Its thesis (set out in the first two sections called Money and You and Money and Happiness) is that, while money can't buy happiness, it can support the foundations of a happy life if understood and used wisely. Misunderstood and used poorly, money can seriously undermine happiness. The third section of the book, Two Pillars of Life Satisfaction, makes the case that life satisfaction comes from living a life based on non-monetary /non-materialistic values, and that the two most important of these are love and meaningful work. This book empowers us to reclaim our lives and feel rich in ways that truly last and matter
