Years of experience working to help resolve the money difficulties of many individuals and families has taught Alvin Hall one crucial insight: our financial status has little to do with the amount of money we earn. The real factor that determines our success or failure with money is how we handle the various emotions and relationships that impact the decisions we make about money. Our response to these complicated emotional issues actually has the ability to make or break our economic security, but now Alvin is on hand with his famous straight-from-the-hip advice to ensure we control our finances - no matter what the underlying issue.Helping us to gain a real insight into the deep-seated psychological roots that govern our attitude towards money, this brand-new book explores each of the major primary relationships that affect our financial choices - our parents, siblings, peers, partners, children, career, retirement, and of course ourselves. With practical and workable tools grounded in reality, Alvin shows us how to make sure the money we work hard to earn works hard for us, and sets us a clear pathway for long-term financial success.

Alvin Hall has his own rags-to-riches story. He grew up on a subsistence farm in rural Florida, then after his degree began a career on Wall Street. He now heads a company giving training to a wide range of financial services companies and institutions around the world. He has also presented a 4-part BBC series INVESTING FOR ALL WITH ALVIN HALL, a 3-part BBC series ALVIN HALL'S GUIDE TO SUCCESSFUL INVESTING as well as YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE. He appears regularly on GMTV.From Publishers Weekly:
In this thoughtful, fresh guide to personal finance management, author and BBC television personality Hall approaches money as something "deeply intertwined with our emotional lives," a quantity that plays "a powerful role in our personal relationships." As such, Hall examines money as closely as its interpersonal influence: "Any kind of major life change-even a positive one, like a dramatic increase in your income-can produce dangerous stresses in your relationships." In chapters with titles such as "Money and Your Parents," "Money and your Peers" and "Money and Your Partner," Hall starts with a short self-assessment quiz-which by itself will get readers thinking differently about money-followed by a thorough discussion of the issues: "Money Personalities, Balanced and Unbalanced," "What Did Money Mean in Your Family?" and "Dealing with the Trauma of Inheritance," among others. Hall wisely focuses on making this book a reader-friendly experience; summaries in "The Bottom Line" and "Take-Aways" make for easy skimming, and issues are consistently supported by emotional, true-life tales of financial strife. This book functions a bit like one-stop self-help, giving readers insight into money, relationships and themselves.
