Lost and Found: One Woman's Story of Losing Her Money and Finding Her Life


Lost and Found: One Woman's Story of Losing Her Money and Finding Her Life Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Women Food and God maps a path to meeting one of our greatest challenges-how we deal with money.

When Geneen Roth and her husband lost their life savings in the Bernard Madoff debacle, 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 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. With irreverent humor and hard-won wisdom, she offers provocative and radical strategies for transforming how we feel and behave about the resources that should, and can, sustain and support our lives.

About the Author

Geneen Roth is the author of eight bestselling books about women and food. Her work has been featured in Time, Elle, The New York Times, and other publications. Born in New York, she lives with her husband, Matt Weinstein, in northern California.
