Geneen Roth is one of my favourite authors whose work is always deeply personal, inspiring, informative and challenging. This is an excellent book in terms of content and production (it would make a lovely gift). One of my favourite passages is from p182 "Money is expensive--we pay for it with moments that will never come again--and then we toss those moments away as if they have nothing to do with us. ... [we flick our] money away as if what happens to it after it leaves [our] hands has no relation to what it cost[s us] to have it." Thank you, Geneen.

Format: Paperback
I really struggled with this book. I found it repetitive and self-indulgent. The author keeps harping back to her relationship with food and while that may have some relevance, it's not supposed to be the point of the book. Not everyone reading the book will have issues around food - I thought the book was meant to be about money.

All the time while reading, I was waiting for the author to get to the point - tell me how you found your life after losing all your money, pass on the lessons you learned, give me some advice to help me manage my own financial life. The book never did reach the point, or if it did, I entirely missed it.

The book is full of examples about the (poor) attitude of her students to money but never seems to address the issues raised. I sent it back for a refund, at least that's 8+ pounds more money in my life!

Seriously, though Ms Roth writes well and possibly there are pearls of wisdom, there was not enough there to fill a book. A short article maybe.
