Counseling for Over-shopping and Over-spending

From the Introduction:

Nobody tries to steal your troubles, and no one can take your good deeds. —Yiddish folk saying

Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination. —Oscar Wilde

Beauty is Nature's coin, must not be hoarded, must be current. —John Milton

Laws bind us. But it's important to remember the law is only what's popular, not what's right or wrong.—Marilyn Manson

As previously mentioned, there's relatively little research or statistics about compulsive stealing, spending or hoarding. Even stats about shoplifting and employee theft in general are hard to come by. But it's safe to say that stealing, overspending and hoarding are growing problems which we as a people are slow to recognize or confront. It's my humble hope that books such as this one help provoke an awareness of and desire to creatively offer solutions for these individual and social problems. Consider the following statistics: CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
