"Why are so many of us unhappy and exhausted? In this honest, provocative, and intelligent book, Manisha delivers a powerful answer: We are devout followers of the Cult of Never Enough. MoneyZen is an essential book for anyone who wants to reimagine their relationship with work and money, create more time for the things that really matter, and live a happier, more meaningful life." -- Ashley Whillans, professor, Harvard Business School and author of Time Smart

"Manisha has a rare gift for digging beyond the cursory to get to the underlying--often messy--truth about what's really holding people back from living their best financial and emotional lives. In a world of non-stop comparison that subliminally encourages people to equate their self-worth with their net worth, it is all too easy to fall prey to 'Never Enough' thinking. In MoneyZen, Manisha teaches us how to liberate ourselves from this destructive world view and create lives rich in financial health and emotional wealth." -- Jean Chatzky, CEO and founder, HerMoney Media

"Many of us struggle to figure out how work and the rest of life should fit together. In this thought-provoking book, Manisha shares wise advice on how strengthening our financial health and our emotional wealth in concert can lead us to a place that neither factor can totally reach on their own." -- Laura Vanderkam, author of Tranquility by Tuesday and Juliet's School of Possibilities

"Hiding behind the hungry ghosts of money, fame, and power lies one that is even more subversive: worry. Specifically about whether we have enough or are ourselves enough. Manisha Thakor's MoneyZen is the perfect prescription to uproot your deepest money fears once and for all. Through vulnerable stories combined with practical strategies, Manisha gives us all permission to finally drop our financial self-worth scorecard." -- Jenny Blake, podcaster and author of Free Time, Pivot, and Life After College

"Too many professionals are caught in a never-ending trap of seeking 'more.' Manisha Thakor provides a way out--a sustainable path to building the lives and careers we want." -- Dorie Clark, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Long Game and executive education faculty, Duke University Fuqua School of Business

"If 'doing it all' so you can 'have it all' was a successful strategy for health and happiness, it should have worked by now. Our exhaustion, sense of overwhelm, and joylessness begs us to take a very different route. MoneyZen offers you a seat on the life raft of ENOUGH. Get on it." -- Mary LoVerde, work/life balance expert and author of I Used To Have a Handle on Life and It Broke

"MoneyZen is a manifesto for finding calm, confidence, and clarity around the role work and money should play in our lives. Drawing on her years of expertise, Manisha proves it's never too late--and never too early--to embrace the MoneyZen mindset. An empowering must-read." -- Deepa Purushothaman, author of The First, The Few, The Only

"A potent call to get away from one's desk." -- Publishers Weekly
