Overview

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Women Food and God explores how emotional issues with money mirror those with food and dietingWhen 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.

    Who Knew?

    I am sitting here amazed and it has been only a few hours since I finished this book. It is uncanny the way Geneen Roth tapped into everything that I have been going through in my "relationship" with money. There has only been one other book that has made me feel like this. It's call "When God Stopped Keeping Score." That book too is just as good.
