Call in to speak with the host
Scott Cluthe hosts' two guests live tonight, as he arcs from Conscious Money to a Brain on Fire!
Patricia Aburdene, author of Megatrends and Conscious Money is Scotts' first guest, followed by Susannah Cahalan, author of Brain on Fire.
As millions become increasingly disillusioned with Wall Street, big banks, and the financial establishment, bestselling author Patricia Aburdene shows readers how to reclaim their financial power in her new book CONSCIOUS MONEY (Atria Books/Beyond Words; September 2012). “While ?finance as usual' bears plenty of blame, we the people must also take responsibility for misplacing our values and our best instincts about money,” she says. Making financial choices that reflect personal values and self-reliance as well as sound financial principles is at the heart of CONSCIOUS MONEY. Susannah Cahalan was a healthy twenty-four-year-old newspaper reporter when suddenly she started showing signs of mania. Seizures, memory loss and paranoia followed, quickly progressing to psychosis and near death catatonia. A million dollars’ worth of medical tests revealed nothing—until she was rescued by the lucky, ingenious intervention of an extraordinary doctor, Souhel Najjar. In BRAIN ON FIRE: My Month of Madness (Free Press hardcover; November 13, 2012), Susannah chronicles her breathtaking descent into madness, the terrifying loss of identity it entailed, and the moving account of her family and boyfriend’s refusal to give up hope.
It's good to talk.
