Happy Money

The Zen path to a happier and more prosperous life




Transform your relationship with money by following the Zen path to prosperity and financial peace of mind – based on the Japanese bestseller which has sold more than a million copies!

For many of us, the subject of money is unavoidably stressful. Managing our personal finances is complicated, time-consuming and often, particularly in the slow countdown to payday, dispiriting. The good news is that in Japan – where a Zen approach to life is more widely practised – a pathway to a better relationship is being carved by the 'Zen Millionaire', Ken Honda.

Based on the phenomenally popular Japanese bestseller, this beautifully written book will reinvent the way you see your personal finances. You will come to understand that money flows like water and arrives like a guest. You'll rethink your own attitudes and examine the way they were shaped by beliefs about money you were taught as a child. And you'll transform your money from a tyrannical master or an unruly slave to a trusted friend. When we heal the fear and anxiety we have about money, we successfully achieve prosperity and peace.

Take the Zen path to financial security and happiness.

'Ken's book will transform your life around money' – Jack Canfield, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and The Success Principles
