THE GOSPEL OF WELLNESS Gyms, Gurus, Goop, and the False Promise of Self-Care

by | Read by Rina Raphael

Contemporary Culture • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrating with a reporter's eye for detail, Rina Raphael delivers an in-depth exploration of the contemporary wellness industry with its laser-like marketing focus on women. With humor and depth, she explores how wellness has become a catch-all phrase used to peddle everything from crystals to spa retreats by targeting today's overworked woman. Raphael's analysis and narration style work together to make this an enjoyable and educational listening experience. She is thoughtful and insightful while giving listeners facts, and while recounting personal experiences of how she was once a believer in the wellness myth. For those wondering why self-care isn't delivering the life benefits the peddlers promise, Raphael has some interesting answers. M.R. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
