With compassion and penetrating wisdom, Geneen Roth reveals how to break destructive emotional patterns and learn to satisfy all the hungers, physical and emotional - that make us human.

IT HELPED

MANY REPORTED HER VOICE AS BEING AGGRAVIATING I FOUND IT CALMING AND THE MORE I LISTEN TO HER I FELT THE NEED TO TREAT MYSELF BETTER. MY EATING HABITS ALMOST CHANGED ON THEIR OWN AS I FELT BETTER ABOUT ME. I LOST 5 LBS ALMOST EFFORTLESSLY BUT I HAVE KEPT IT OFF THE SAME WAY.

Recommended to those struggling with weight loss

Although the authour, Geneen Roth, has a rather annoying voice (somewhat whining and babyish), the message in her books is excellent. As someone who has struggled with weight issues for a very long time, her take on it is very different from most, but made complete sense to me. I would recommend listening to this and her other books. You get used to her voice after a while and what remains is a way to explore the deeper issues associated with food.

A professional voice actor should have been used

It was very hard for me to listen to this and gain any knowledge. The author herself narrates this and her voice is slow and drawn out. I was frequently annoyed by her tone and rhythm and it completely pulled me away from the actual message of this audio book. I've read other books of hers and had no problems following them. there's a lot of good stuff here if you can get past the voice.

Powerful

Not the kind of audio book that you listen to just once. This book is full of profound insights and wisdom. Absolutely amazing. Highly recommend.

Love it!

I have been trying to better understand why my obsession with food and my weight disappeared when I worked through deep issues that appeared on the surface, not related to food!
This has helped me understand it much better.
It's also helped me become aware of the reasons I attract certain relationships and how I can work through past hurts to enjoy intimacy.
Thank you geneen!!!
