Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author of Women, Food and God explores how emotional issues with money mirror those with food and dieting.

When Geneen Roth and her husband lost their life savings, Roth joined the millions of Americans dealing with financial turbulence, uncertainty, and abrupt reversals in their expectations. The resulting shock was the catalyst for her to explore, in workshops and in her own life, how women’s habits and behaviors around money—as with food—can lead to exactly the situations they most want to avoid. Roth identified her own unconscious choices: 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, among others. As she examined the deep sources of these habits, she faced the hard truth about where her “self-protective” financial decisions had led.

As in all of her books, Roth relates her personal experience with irreverent humor and hard-won wisdom. Here, she offers provocative and radical strategies for transforming how we feel and behave about the resources that should, and ultimately can, sustain and support our lives.

    "Fascinating"

    I found the correlations between food and money to be fascinating. I am also inspired to take a closer look at my beliefs and values and how they align with my behaviors.

    "A Blessing!"

    Geneen Roth's writing style is wonderful and her tone honest. She says what needs to be said about food and money compulsions, and calls for the Reader to do the same. In doing so she opens the door to being truthful with ourselves about what all suffering boils down to: our perceived unworthiness of self. This in itself makes the few repetitive themes easy to overlook.

    As a side: she does narrate this version. Some have mentioned that her voice is grating, etc. It did take a few passages to get used to, but overall I enjoyed it. To hear her words as she meant them to be heard is wonderful.

    "Amazing Insight about Life"
    Which scene was your favorite?

    Learning what Enough is and taking in what we already have.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, so many jewels to absorb, but I wanted to take it all in!


    Any additional comments?

    Geneen Roth has an amazing way of leading us into ourselves, through the door way of what we suffer from most. Be it Food, Money or how we spend our Time. Her wisdom shows us what it means to really pay attention to what we already have. In addition to learning the tools of taking in and really letting ourselves have what we have now. Now in this very moment.
    Her journey is amazing and we are all better for her sharing it with us.

    "Not Very Interesting"
    What disappointed you about Lost and Found?

    It was like listening to a friend tell me about how she lost her money. Very few insights into money etc. She rehashed most of her food stuff and I don't have a food issue.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Don't Know


    What didn’t you like about Geneen Roth’s performance?

    Her voice was grating and slow.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I kept wanting to hear more substance. Hearing her describe in detail walking into a department store was so boring.
