Holy. Shmoly. You Can Now Pre-Order My Book!

written by Bari Tessler March 20, 2016

Dear Community,

For 15 years now, I have heard the same question, over and over, Red Rover:

“When’s the book coming out?”

People asked me this question …

… after every public talk (from people who wanted MORE)

… smack-dab in the middle of private financial therapy sessions (from folks who knew their sweetie was ready for this work, too)

… and throughout my year-long money school, from lit-up students who wanted to share this work, this message, with their best friends, mothers, neighbors, cousins — all those people who are so ready to heal the stress, shame, and confusion they feel about money and make this relationship a unique expression of their noble hearts: clear, grounded, aligned, and empowered.

For years, each time I got The Question, I answered, “Not yet … but soon.” I knew as well as they did that there was already an Art of Money book, living inside me. But the book, these teachings, and I, needed time to grow and mature. That time is over. And I’m thrilled to say:

The book is here!

Here’s the totally un-staged, unshowered, excited to-the-max moment when the box of book galleys arrived. I screamed so loud I scared the pants off of poor Forest!

This photo was taken at the Boulder Bookstore last year as I was introducing my dear friend, Sara Avant Stover, for her reading of The Book of She. I hoped and prayed that I would be kicking off my book tour here.
