“These chapters of simple advice are easily digestible, and reading one per day is a good way to start this practice. Empowering words for women—especially those struggling with body issues—to regain control of their lives.” (Kirkus)
"Geneen Roth's early work pulled my sister out of the abyss of eating disorders. My gratitude and admiration for Geneen has deepened still with her newest book. In This Messy Magnificent Life, we experience her signature divine wisdom and hilarious humanity—but Geneen also gives us something new and important. Here, Geneen shows us how our individual body and food obsessions are directly linked to our collective oppression as women—and how getting free from our personal prisons is crucial to seeking liberation at every level. This is a beautiful, funny, deeply relevant book -- a vital work for this moment." (Glennon Doyle, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Love Warrior and founder and president of Together Rising)
“This Messy Magnificent Life delivers a brilliant, funny, and frank offering at the stroke of midnight (just when we need it). By page ten you're convinced she's your smartest and funniest best friend. This Messy Magnificent Life is—dare I say it? Yep. Messy. It's magnificent, hilarious and 100% the generous, complicated gift that is Geneen Roth's imagination, experience and soul, on a platter. 2018 will be made easier to navigate with This Messy Magnificent Life by my side.” (Kathy Najimy)

There's a reason she's such a treasure.” (Dani Shapiro, author of Hourglass: Time, Memory, Marriage and Devotion: A Memoir)
“I’ve long admired Geneen Roth’s approach to food and its place in our lives. In This Messy Magnificent Life she goes beyond food and shows the complex interconnection between our minds and the bodies we have the power to heal. Her insights and simple practices will help readers rediscover the power to live their most vibrant lives.” (Mark Hyman, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller Eat Fat, Get Thin)
“Roth, who has become more resilient with age, will captivate readers with her energetic yet calming wisdom.” (Publishers Weekly)
