Kate Levinson's self-help finance book doesn't aim to make women rich. It wants them to invest in exploring their feelings about money. Emotional Currency: A Woman's Guide to Building a Healthy Relationship With Money (Random House, $14.99 list) comes out April 12, just in time for the cash-addled to wrap their heads around Uncle Sam's looming tax deadline.

"Traditionally we're taught that our feelings get in the way about managing money," Levinson, a Bay Area psychotherapist, told WalletPop. "In fact, integrating our emotional reactions to our dealings with money are essential to having a balanced relationship with money."
