What if wealth wasn't measured simply in a dollar amount, but in a person's attitudes toward happiness and abundance? What if people could redefine their values and thinking about prosperity, and in doing so find themselves in control of their financial destinies? The new thought-provoking book, The Psychology of Wealth, Understand Your Relationship with Money and Achieve Prosperity by Dr. Charles Richards, answers these questions and more. The current debate about how people should spend, save, and borrow requires a conscious look at what motivates their personal financial decisions and how their emotions play into their fiscal actions.

"What's in your head determines what's in your wallet. Dr. Richards gives you the mental hard-drive upgrade you need to finally achieve the greater prosperity and success you desire."
-Darren Hardy, Publisher, SUCCESS magazine

Dr. Richards shows readers how they can make the most beneficial decisions and chart their best possible financial course by taking the responsibility to educate themselves. He explains that one of the keys to conscious financial living and creating prosperity is seeking out knowledge about one's options and resources-or, simply put, learning how money works. For example, he illustrates that credit and debt, although often portrayed as negative, can support personal and financial growth. He steers readers away from the trappings of unconscious debt, such as those involved in revolving credit, and toward the conscious use of debt that promotes responsible borrowing, sets clear goals, and creates a feeling of accomplishment when paid in full.

The Psychology of Wealth also includes many stories of inspiring individuals who have overcome adversity to achieve their goals and find empowerment and prosperity. Based on interviews with some of the nation's most knowledgeable experts in law, finance, politics and business, this fascinating book explores the roles that wealth plays in people's lives and the evolution of the American experience of life.

"What will get us out of the unfortunate spot we've gotten ourselves into? In a word: consciousness. Approaching our finances consciously-with an awareness of our circumstances, motivations, and true aims-is key," Dr. Richards writes in The Psychology of Wealth. Along the way, he teaches a new process for seeking and achieving a true and encompassing wealth and offers real-life strategies to create a healthier and happier financial future.
