Within every person, there is a longing that no amount of food, no career accomplishment, no possession can ever fill, for this is a longing of the spirit: the ever-present reminder that we are each blessed with a vast potential.
In Appetites, best-selling author Geneen Roth looks beyond her 15 years of pioneering work with women, food, and body image to ask the greatest of questions: What truly nourishes the human spirit? Through the lens of her own life experience, Roth examines the core of spirituality and the feelings and behaviors that can mask it. What happens when deep inner need is answered only with external "satisfaction"? Why is it that we are still left feeling empty, no matter how much we try to accomplish in a day? Appetites shows that beneath the frustration and unaccountable hunger you feel lies a reservoir of strength and courage, waiting to direct you to the true nourishment that you seek.
