Breaks the silence about the power money holds over family life

Internationally known psychologist Cloe Madanes and writer Claudio Madanes present a revolutionary view of the role money plays in families. In dozens of stories, anecdotes, and case histories, they show how family members all use money in covert ways that express desires, struggles for power, and yearning for commitment.
