FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY seeks the meaning in man's behavior towards money--to which he is, in some way, in thrall.

Its material comes from sociology and psychology, explorations with patients, philosophy and ethics.
As a personal confrontation wherein they may review their own attitudes towards money and its uses, FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY speaks to all persona. It will interest fund raisers, bankers, and financiers, who seek and handle money, and physicians, clergymen, psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers, who deal with man's emotional uses of money.
It may speak, also, to the bargain hunter, the penny pincher, and the parent whose children fantasy him as a money tree.« less
