Green is for tea, not envy

This book review has nothing to do with green tea or Japan but does have everything to do with emotional well-being. The book's message essentially is: "Don't be so envious about how much money others seem to be making—because, first of all, everyone struggles with money problems, even the ones who seem to be living the good life."

"We convince ourselves that our problems are ours alone, and we spend so much of our time hiding our angst, which causes more stress," says Boss. "What I learned is that everybody struggles with issues around money, nobody is completely happy and comfortable -- and knowing that is a huge relief. We feel less alone."
