ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Lindsey Hall and Leigh Cohn, who are married, are internationally respected authors of several books on eating disorders and recovery topics. Their original self-help guide was the first book ever published on bulimia, and Lindsey was the first "recovered bulimic" to appear on national television. Both have lectured extensively and have served as officers of nonprofit associations. Some of their books have been translated into French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and other languages. Also available Anorexia Nervosa: A Guide to Recovery by Lindsey Hall and Monika Ostroff.
"This is essential reading for clinicians, but perhaps its greatest strength is the encouragement it gives to patients and families to understand and work through this disorder free of guilt or shame, and endowed with knowledge and effective strategies. I recommend it for all my patients."
"If I had only one book to give someone with bulimia it would be this 25th anniversary edition of Bulimia: A Guide to Recovery. Lindsey and Leigh offer their experience: through the darkness of an eating disorder to the light of recovery and a life of love and service."
"Everyone whose life is touched by eating disorders can gain insight, inspiration, and practical tools from this comprehensive and compassionate text. Bravo, Lindsey and Leigh—and thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts!"
"This invaluable book combines practical, "how-to" information with Lindsey's honest, intimate story. It is an excellent resource for understanding the whole spectrum of eating disorders and offers sound, empowering strategies for recovery. Wise, respectful, and thorough."
"This groundbreaking book is as relevant today as it was when it first offered hope. Thank you, Lindsey and Leigh, for shining light on the path towards recovery and for continuing to lead the way with such courage and grace!"
"Superb! The best book written on battling bulimia, with new sections on mindfulness, healthy eating, and balanced exercise. A must have for anyone affected by bulimia."
"I've recommended Bulimia to many of my clients over the decades and know it has helped each of them. Your story has inspired troubled eaters all over the world to take heart and follow in your footsteps. How fortunate for us all— clients and clinicians—that you had the courage and wisdom to write it."
"Lindsey and Leigh combine all the elements essential to a seminal book about bulimia: a deep and thorough understanding of the subject from both personal and professional viewpoints, profound compassion for those who suffer from the illness, and inspiration and hope about the possibilities for recovery."
"Lindsey Hall and Leigh Cohn have done more for the eating disorders field than the rest of us put together. They have educated treatment professionals, individuals with eating disorders, and loved ones across the globe. Lindsey published her story before most people had even heard about bulimia."
"This revision, filled with warmth and wisdom, clearly establishes Bulimia: A Guide to Recovery as a classic in the field. Lindsey and Leigh are an unbeatable team, offering practical tools, day-to-day strategies, and compelling insights into the inner struggles of all who suffer. A must for anyone—patient, family member, or therapist—committed to learning about the journey to recovery."
"A rare eating disorder book—essential information and contagious inspiration, in equal measure. There is no doubt that I have recommended this book to more of my eating disorder clients than any other, and I don"t see that changing any time soon."
"Bulimia: A Guide to Recovery remains a truly heartfelt and sensitively drawn account of an illness that although far better understood today is no less painful to endure."
"In this updated and revised 25th anniversary edition, Lindsey and Leigh have added a considerable amount of new material while keeping the pearls of wisdom and insights that made this book vitally meaningful and invaluable to so many readers over the years."
