This book is not new. But the concept and the content are so refreshing against the backdrop of finger-pointing, financial anxiety and knee-jerk non-solutions to our individual and collective financial dramas, I thought it warranted some exposure, especially to the real estate-minded folk of America. "Why Smart People Do Stupid Things with MONEY," by Bert Whitehead, is a 100 percent timely, holistic and insightful guide to understanding and rehabilitating financial dysfunction and setting the stage for long-term financial wellness.

At the outset, Whitehead, one of America’s loudest proponents for noncommissioned, fee-only financial planning, discusses the beginnings of the current national financial crises, without excessively blaming either institutions or individuals.
