Description

Geneen Roth galvanized millions with Women Food and God, a book that drew upon her years of teaching about the charged connection between food and our inner lives. Now she turns her attention to the other great secret in American culture: our conflicted relationship with money. Precipitated by the loss of her entire life savings in the Bernard Madoff scandal, Roth took a hard look at her own habits-and found direct parallels between her relationship with food and money: binge shopping followed by periods of budgetary self-deprivation, "treating" herself in ways that ultimately failed to sustain, and using money as a substitute for love. As Roth used the tools she developed to unlock unconscious patterns around food and dieting, what she learned was a revelation. In Lost and Found, she examines the crisis of suffering around money that pervades our culture, dominates the media, and causes us sleepless nights. Americans need a wake-up call about how we use and abuse money. Lost and Found is a radical template for liberating ourselves from old patterns and transforming how we feel and behave about the precious resources that should, and ultimately can, sustain and support our lives.

Professional reviews

"Geneen Roth, bestselling author and teacher of numerous workshops and retreats related to food and the compulsions that surround it, lost her life savings after investing with Bernie Madoff. Now she turns her attention to analyzing women's relationships with money and financial issues and finds many parallels between food and finances. Narrating her own work, Roth allows her personality to permeate her reading, frequently changing her tone to convey outrage or excitement. Her experience with public speaking and narrating her previous audiobooks certainly helps her delivery. Still, she periodically alternates between a speedy, slightly tinny reading and a gentler, more deliberate approach that allows the listener time to process the intent of her words. E.N.
