Review For most people money is a source of stress and a controlling force in our lives: we spend the majority of our day thinking about money (getting it and spending it) or working for it. Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez, now international lecturers, have developed a unique program for changing the way we interact with money. It's based on getting out of debt, living minimally and moving beyond the obsession most of us have with the green stuff at one level or another. By first minutely considering how much of our "life energy" is actually spent in the acquisition of money, where that money is spent (you'll be amazed), and how our consumption affects the entire planet, we can more comfortably re-prioritize our values, save money by living frugally (buying used, bartering services, paying off debt) and eventually achieve financial independence. The end result is that we can learn to live "at the peak of the Fulfillment Curve, always having plenty but never burdened by excess." Sounds like a bargain. -- From ; review by Ilene Rosoff Required reading for everyone. -- About the Author Vicki Robin���is a renowned innovator, writer, and speaker.

When we go to our jobs we are trading our life energy for money. This truth, while simple, is profound. Less obvious but equally true, when we go to the welfare office, we are trading our life energy for money....So, while money has no intrinsic reality, our life energy does-at least to us. It's tangible, and it's finite. Life energy is all we have. It is precious because it is limited and irretrievable and because our choices about how we use it express the meaning and purpose of our time here on earth.
