When University of Chicago professor Harold Pollack interviewed Helaine Olen, an award-winning financial journalist and the author of the bestselling Pound Foolish, he made an off­hand suggestion: everything you need to know about managing your money could fit on an index card. To prove his point, he grabbed a 4" x 6" card, scribbled down a list of rules, and posted a picture of the card online. The post went viral. Personal finance should not be complicated, and this book delivers on the promise of keeping it simple.

This book brings home the "whys" behind the pursuit of minimalism. The pursuit isn't for minimalism's sake. It's the pursuit of a better life, one in which we have more time, more attention, more awareness. It's a way to be fully present, unpreoccupied by so much that doesn't matter.
We think we know what it's like to have no money but unless we've been a member of the working poor, Ehrenreich's message is clear: we don't have a clue what it's really like until we're faced with their day-to-day challenges, with their reality. She got a glimpse of what it's like and she shares her experience in this important book.
Spent is Avis Cardella's timely, deeply personal, and shockingly dramatic exploration of our cultural need to spend, and of what happens when someone is consumed by the desire to consume.
We are by definition a materialistic society. Everything we do on a day-to-day basis revolves around our stuff: getting it, maintaining it, using it, disposing of it, replenishing it, upgrading it, etc. and it's costing us in unexpected ways. Kasser shows us how.
