A manual for navigating life’s most consequential and daunting decisions using research-based insights road-tested in a popular course at Stanford University.
We are experiencing the most significant shift in work-life balance in decades, marked by remote work, the Great Reshuffle, and a mass reconfiguring of family dynamics and social/professional networks. In this comprehensive guide, Stanford Professor Emerita Myra Strober and social innovation leader Abby Davisson give you the insight and advice to make the right choices when facing life’s big choices. Money and Love explores many consequential questions, such as: Should I move in with this person? Should I quit my job? When is the “right time” to have another child? And numerous other daunting decisions familiar to us all.
Pairing engaging narratives with hard data, Money and Love is an essential toolkit for making intelligent decisions that can help you build the foundation for a more rewarding life. Most guides view money and love as separate issues; Strober and Davisson emphasize they are interdependent and show you how to consider them jointly using the 5Cs: Clarify, Communicate, Choices, Check-in, and Consequences. Their framework offers simple and effective steps that will empower you to make the best strategic decisions today and for the rest of your life.
