Product Details


“Mind Over Money is a lifeline for anyone who thinks of money as a way to secure happiness, love, or define their self-worth.  I know because I was driven by these unhealthy behaviors that almost put my family and me in financial crisis.  The process this book walks you through worked for me– I now control my money– my money no longer controls me.  My hope is that after reading the book, you’ll be on your new path to financial healing too.” -Wynonna Judd  ”The Klontzes, a father son team, have the mental answer to money.  This book will help you overcome your own “wrong thinking” and get moving fast in the right direction to the financial destiny and freedom that you deserve.”  -David Bach, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Automatic Millionaire and Start Late, Finish Rich  ”An insightful and highly understandable glimpse into why intimate discussions surrounding money are so difficult for so many people.  Our past definitely influences the present and our future – far more than many might realize.”  -Pat DeLeon, former President, American Psychological Association ”Mind Over Money is a valuable resource for individuals wanting to break free from a troubled financial past and create a healthy current relationship with money that can create future financial success. It is Must reading on everyone’s Now list.” -Philip Zimbardo, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Stanford University, author of the Lucifer Effect and The Time Paradox  ”Brad and Ted Klontz know the power of the dollar in our lives, and they’ve long studied the emotions behind our financial decisions. Through their research and this compelling book, they can change lives.”-Jeffrey Zaslow, coauthor of The Last Lecture, author of The Girls from Ames 

Author Q&A

Who is this book written for?

We wrote this book for people who are dissatisfied with their relationship with money. Perhaps they overspend, undersave, are anxious about money, or depressed about their financial situation. Many of them know what they should be doing with their money, but just can’t seem to make it happen.
What are the most common money disorders that you treat?

Overspending is a common problem, as well as excessive risk-taking, financial enabling, financial dependency, financial denial, wealth avoidance, and hoarding.

How is today’s economy impacting the mindset of the typical American?

The economic crisis has been traumatic for many Americans. At the same time, it offers an exciting opportunity for us to examine our relationship with money and overcome our self-defeating money beliefs and behaviors. Prior to the crisis, the average American household had a savings rate of -0.5% and over $10,000 in credit card debt. While there are aspects of the economy we can’t control, the current crisis is awakening Americans to the role they have played in their financial stresses.
What’s the first step in overcoming a money disorder?

When we are experiencing financial stress, it is much easier to externalize the blame—a struggling economy, a tanking housing market, predatory lending practices, etc. It’s much more difficult to acknowledge the part we play in the mess, but therein lays the key to improving our financial health. To overcome our money disorders we must acknowledge the role we play. Our financial difficulties do not stem from our being lazy, crazy, greedy, or stupid. They are the result of psychological forces that lie beneath our conscious awareness with roots that run deep into our past. Discovering this link is a key component of transforming our financial lives.
