'When I first started working with compulsive eating, no one was talking about their fears, their shame, the way they connected food with love. But the reluctance to talk about money was even more entrenched.'

New York Times bestselling author Geneen Roth galvanized million of readers 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 Bernard Madoff scandal, Roth ook 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 substitue for love. She dsicovered a haunted and compulsive quality in her relationship with money - and faced with a crisis, she needed to find out why.

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, dominated the media, and causes us sleepless nights - regardless of how wealthy of poor we might be. With her unique combination of grace and humour, Roth unlocks the true meaning of the equations we make between money and love, money and success, money and happiness.

Geneen Roth's moving stoires of friends, fellow investors, and workshop students create a clear picture that Americans need a wake-up call about how we use and abuse money. Lost and Found is just that- a dazzling, provocative, and in fact radical template for liberating ourselves from old patterns and transforming how we feel about the previous resources that should, and ultimately can, sustain and support our lives.

GENEEN ROTH is the author of eight previous books, including the number one New York Times bestseller Women Food and God. She has been teaching groundbreaking workshops and retreats for more than thirty years. Roth is a contributor to many publications from The Huffington Post and Good Housekeeping to O, The Oprah Magazine. She has appeared on numerous national programs, such as Oprah, 20/20, Good Morning America, The View, and NPR's Talk of the Nation. She lives with her husband in northern California.
