Book Review: It Is Only Money by Cara MacMillan
|Genre:||Non Fiction, Self Help|
|Book Name:||It Is Only Money
and It Grows on Trees!
|Publisher:||Mirror Image Publishing|
Not denying the fact that all self-help books are not that interesting enough. However, the book It Is Only Money and It Grows on Trees! puts a different perspective on financial and sustainability management with different modules taught in a chapter-wise fashion so as to avoid overloading the reader with excessive information. An informative and easy-to-read book, which reminded me of the initial finance classes taught in my college by one of my favorite professors. And…there are no numbers involved. How cool is that now!
Reading this book on a train trip, while sporadically enjoying the greenery outside, the book was a simple sail through with quips on fables, tales and wisdom from different religions and cultures. Some grammatical errors could have been avoided though, but overall a finance read very similar to fiction category. There are also work-lessons in the end, just in case the same would want to be practiced by teachers in their classes as well.
Excerpt from the back cover of the book:
The story takes place in a classroom where a teacher named Catherine has written the word, Money, in large capital letters on the blackboard. She invites her students to help her define what money is. The students propose varying answers, and Catherine explains how each of these different definitions comes from our cultural, religious, family, and economic backgrounds.
It Is Only Money will inspire, challenge, and encourage you to ask: Why am I not rich? What do I need to learn? Do I need to change my thoughts and actions? Can I do it? Where do I go for answers? How can I balance my money and climate change?
