Our contentment is based on how we measure up to those around us, how close we come to the image we feel compelled to live up to, even when it means putting up a front. But how can anyone make realistic comparisons to others when everyones personal finances are shrouded in secrecy and shame? Were living in the dark, and its turning the American dream into an anxiety attack. A tantalizing mix of hard facts and delicious gossip, GREEN WITH ENVY peers into the lives and checkbooks of our neighborsfrom a national politician to a New York City couple to a suburban familyand gives readers what they need to improve their financial well being without touching their bank accounts.
