In Monkey Money Mind, authors Chris Zadeh and Angelique Schouten explore the psychological influences that spur our irrationality and mute our reason when it comes to financial decision-making. Featuring interviews with notable contributors, Monkey Money Mind focuses on why we stop thinking when we start spending. The book is packed with tips, lessons learned and success stories on how to overcome debt (such as student loans), save money, invest money and overall improve your relationship with your finances. All proceeds will go to charity: The Gorilla Organization.
