Title: Lost and Found: Unexpected Revelations About Food and Money

Author: Geneen Roth

Publisher: Viking Adult

Type: Non Fiction

Released: March 22, 2011

Length: 224 pages

In Lost & Found: Unexpected Revelations about Food and Money, Geneen Roth uses her insight and humor to show that how we eat and how we spend – the dieting and budgeting, bingeing and splurging – have roots in the unconscious beliefs we hold about ourselves. “Unless we examine our relationships to money, chances are that we are acting out a world of insufficiency and greed in our daily financial exchanges. And since our feeling and beliefs always manifest in our behaviors and since we can’t separate one part of ourselves from the other parts, we can’t help but carry this greed and deprivation, this shame and fear to every relationship we have and to everything we do,” says Roth. She examines how her own money compulsions contributed to her personal financial disaster and offers lessons on how she managed to recover from the loss of her entire life savings.
