The Prosperous Heart Reviewed

I just finished reading The Prosperous Heart: Creating a Life of "Enough", by Julia Cameron.  She wrote , a book that moved me, which is designed for blocked artists of every stripe.  (I've never faced a dearth of creative energy, but I still enjoyed the book.)

The Prosperous Heart is for anyone whose relationship with money is troubled.  It incorporates a spiritual approach to money issues, which makes it pretty unique.  It is well written and packed with insightful anecdotes.  While Julia tends to write for artists and their fluctuating income, I think anybody who is interested a healthy relationship with money and who practices any kind of spirituality would find the book helpful.

Here is a sampling of some of the quotes that she has in the margins to give you an idea what the book is about.
