"This is the best book I have read on recovering from anorexia nervosa. Combining 'the facts' personal experience and compassion, this immensely practical book is a must-read for people with anorexia and their loved ones."
"This inspired, compassionate book will be a tremendous resource to persons whose lives are, or have been affected by anorexia. With a refreshingly appropriate balance of anecdotal material and research evidence, the authors portray recovery from anorexia for what it is. This is a book that I will refer others to with professional and personal confidence."
"With the glut of books written about anorexia nervosa, this guide is a welcome change, written for and to the anorexic herself. It speaks directly to the patient answering her questions, providing examples of recovery, and gently walking her through exercises and techniques she can do at her own pace. Every therapist should lead his or her clients to it."
