This practical, systematic approach to financial freedom is divided into three sections. The first one takes us back to our most formative experiences with money. We do this in order to break free of financial worries and take control of our feelings about money. Once we´ve made this connection, we´re then able to change both our attitudes and our actions and start to create a life that is financially free. The next section contains the Must Dos, the Laws of Money. Here we´ll learn how to master the practical elements of financial life. We´ll find out about trusts and wills; credit-card debt; saving for retirement; the insurance we should and shouldn´t have; and most important, we´ll come to understand why it´s so critical to trust our own instincts more than others´, even the professionals to whom we´re so accustomed to listening, when making financial decisions. The last section takes us beyond the financial realm into an area of life that all the money in the world just can´t buy. It is here that we learn the true secrets of the money cycle and realize that we cannot measure our self worth by our net worth. With this last section, we have entered the realm of wealth! 1.

In trade paperback for the first time, the lacerating and brilliant novel of psychiatrists and patients--´´(a) superbly incisive and witty sequel to Shem´s bestselling ´´The House of God´´ (´´Publisher´s Weekly´´). From the Laws of Mount Misery: There are no laws in psychiatry. Now, from the author of the riotous, moving, bestselling classic, The House of God, comes a lacerating and brilliant novel of doctors and patients in a psychiatric hospital. Mount Misery is a prestigious facility set in the rolling green hills of New England, its country club atmosphere maintained by generous corporate contributions. Dr. Roy Basch (hero of The House of God) is lucky enough to train there *only to discover doctors caught up in the circus of competing psychiatric theories, and patients who are often there for one main reason: they´ve got good insurance. From the Laws of Mount Misery: Your colleagues will hurt you more than your patients. On rounds at Mount Misery, it´s not always easy for Basch to tell the patients from the doctors: Errol Cabot, the drug cowboy whose practice provides him with guinea pigs for his imaginative prescription cocktails . . . Blair Heiler, the world expert on borderlines (a diagnosis that applies to just about everybody) . . . A. K. Lowell, née Aliyah K. Lowenschteiner, whose Freudian analytic technique is so razor sharp it prohibits her from actually speaking to patients . . . And Schlomo Dove, the loony, outlandish shrink accused of having sex with a beautiful, well-to-do female patient. From the Laws of Mount Misery: Psychiatrists specialize in their defects. For Basch the practice of psychiatry soon becomes a nightmare in which psychiatrists compete with one another to find the best ways to reduce human beings to blubbering drug-addled pods, or incite them to an extreme where excessive rage is the only rational response, or tie them up in Freudian knots. And all the while, the doctors seem less interested in their patients´ mental health than in a host of other things *managed care insurance money, drug company research grants and kickbacks, and their own professional advancement. From the Laws of Mount Misery: In psychiatry, first comes treatment, then comes diagnosis. What The House of God did for doctoring the body, Mount Misery does for doctoring the mind. A practicing psychiatrist, Samuel Shem brings vivid authenticity and extraordinary storytelling gifts to this long-awaited sequel, to create a novel that is laugh-out-loud hilarious, terrifying, and provocative. Filled with biting irony and a wonderful sense of the absurd, Mount Misery tells you everything you´ll never learn in therapy. And it´s a hell of a lot funnier.
