Are you a squirrel or an ostrich? If not, then perhaps you're a high roller, a striver, or a debt desperado. These terms, coined by author Jordan Goodman, help you to discover your financial personality. In Master Your Money Type, Goodman aims to help readers uncover their money needs and wants, while developing sound financial plans.

Goodman begins by describing his different money types from the squirrels who feel the need to hoard their pennies to the high rollers who take big monetary risks. He also helps readers examine what money means to them emotionally, whether it is a road to security, prestige, or happiness. Many of our behaviors towards money are rooted in the past, such as how we saw our parents earning and spending. Contained within the pages are personal stories illustrating different financial types. These profiles keep the reading interesting.

Goodman, an eighteen year veteran of Money magazine's editorial staff, includes helpful worksheets to determine monthly cash flow and to plan better budgeting. His financial quizzes aid the reader as well. In a clear, concise fashion, Master Your Money Type offers help in a variety of resources for those who are trying to manage their money better.
