Reviews - What do customers think about More Money Than God: Living a Rich Life Without Losing Your Soul?
Save Your Money Jun 18, 2006
There is little "traditional" wisdom here one would expect from a spiritual leader. The advice is simplistic and available any weekend in the financial section of most newspapers. Some theories advanced here are just plain way out. Sorry, I expected more and was very disappointed
Worth Its Weight in God Mar 30, 2004
No matter how much, or how little, money you have, you will be enriched by this timely tome. Like Rabbi Leder himself, 'More Money Than God' is hip, funny, engaging, and wise. It helps us reexamine our relationship to money, and how money affects us and our relationships to each other. Too many of us let money guide our lives. Rabbi Leder teaches how age-old spiritual guidance -- and Judaic principles -- can help you sort out your own morals and values when it comes to things you really can't put a price on. Rabbi Leder provides just the right "light touch" so that 'More Money Than God' comes across as good old-fashioned shmoozing, not sermonizing. But the lessons here are timeless and invaluable, for young and old. What Rabbi Leder has to tell us is simple, but not simplistic. You and your family will benefit mightily from this book. I bought a copy for my teenage daughter, and I've heard her quoting from it to her friends -- enough said. Enjoy!
How to be generous and grateful Jan 30, 2004
This is an exceptional book. Rabbi Leder writes with humility and wisdom about a crucial topic: In our money-crazy society, how can we stay focused on what's truly important? So many people have everything they want but nothing they need. With humorous as well as bittersweet examples, he writes that we need to work less, love our families more, and "send the elevator" back down for people who have less. Life is short: Make it count. Highly recommended.
Very rewarding book Dec 22, 2003
This is such a good book. I loved it. It is a perceptive and compelling book that stayed with me long after I read it. More Money than God is subtle and profound and gently offers guidance to enhance your life. It can be easy to lose sight of what really matters in life and this insightful book redirects our gaze from amassing wealth to appreciating those people around us who we love.
This is a powerful book and I highly recommend it.
