More About the Author

Jenni Schaefer's breakthrough bestseller, "Life Without Ed: How One Woman Declared Independence from Her Eating Disorder and How You Can Too," established her as one of the leading lights in the recovery movement. With her second book, "Goodbye Ed, Hello Me: Recover from Your Eating Disorder and Fall in Love with Life," she earned her place as one of the country's foremost motivational writers and speakers. In her latest, she teams with Harvard Medical School to address the millions of people who struggle with disordered eating while not meeting the diagnostic criteria for a full-blown eating disorder. "Almost Anorexic: Is My (or My Loved One's) Relationship with Food a Problem?" (Harvard Health Publications/Hazelden, July 2013) bridges the gaps between cutting-edge research, clinical knowledge and personal experience to provide both insight and hope.

Jenni's straightforward, realistic style has made her a role model, source of inspiration, and confidant to people worldwide looking to overcome adversity and live more fully. She speaks at conferences, at major universities, and in corporate settings; has appeared on many syndicated TV and radio shows; and has been quoted in publications including "The New York Times." She is also Chair of the Ambassadors Council of the National Eating Disorders Association. An accomplished singer/songwriter, she lives in Austin, Texas.

I love "Goodbye Ed, Hello Me" by Jenni Schaefer. This is one of the best recovery books I ever read. It covers so many important lessons that those struggling with eating disorders need to hear, no matter at what stage they are in their recovery.

I really liked that the book also includes exercises to get you, the reader, involved and moving forward in your own healing journey. But what I like most about the book is that Jenni talks about how she moved from "being in recovery" to "being recovered." Many people believe that one has to struggle with an eating disorder forever, or be forever in recovery and has to learn to just live with it.

Jenni's book shows us that eating disorders really can be beaten, ONCE AND FOR ALL. This book will inspire you to take action and know that life without Ed (eating disorder) really is possible for you!"

I have never left a review before but felt it was important to do so for others like me who are just starting recovery. I selected this book because of all the positive reviews and because the book itself said it was for anyone no matter what stage of recovery they were in. I felt like I was reading a a very general "you can do it too" book but did not get any real information to help guide me through recovery. It was not only hard to connect with but some times it was actually dangerous. At one point, I stopped reading the book and went deeper into my ED. The author spoke about how her body naturally got heavier (which is obviously going to happen) but her description of how her body changed sent me dangerously backwards. For someone who is recovered, this might not be a problem. Maybe some day I will get there, but this is not the place to start.

I was so thrilled yesterday to open up my mailbox to find an autographed copy of Jenni Schaefer's new book, Goodbye Ed, Hello Me! Jenni is also the wonderful author of the book Life Without Ed, a humorous, insightful, and down-to-earth personal story of one woman's 'break-up' and recovery from Ed: her eating disorder. Her lastest work is its companion. I read Life Without Ed during my recovery, and have since recommended it out as a helpful tool to many young men and women as I travel and speak. I was lucky enough to read Goodbye Ed, Hello Me pre-publication and offer a quote for the first page. I HIGHLY recommend both of these books for both individuals and families going through this battle. Jenni's writing is insightful and real; no lofty language, no 'doctor' talk, just raw human emotions, and humor as well. Everyone can relate to Jenni's story, and she is so honest! It's refreshing.

First i need to say that I read a lot, at first because i wanted to learn English, so i started to read Kindle ebooks.

It was a way to find good and cheap books in English to improve my skills. Now I'm able to read very well, not so much writing as you can see.

Anyway,

About the book. I read a lot about this subject, I've had a family member with an eating disorder and that made her parents suffer a lot, besides after this event I've became interested on this particular theme. I've read most of the Amazon's bestsellers about this subject at least once and I have to say that most books are just plain bad. They use re-hashed content or non value at all. And some are written by people who does not look like knows English very well. Like me.

Anyway,

I've only found 3 really good books on this subject on the Amazon sea, more on this after the break.

Because Goodbye Ed, Hello Me is in another league. I can't recommend enough this book, even if you don't have an eating disorder or anyone on your family I still recommend for the lessons you can learn. It's a book with such inspiration and hope. I couldn't put it down from start to finish. It had me constantly wondering what was going to happen next.

Jenni makes this book so personal and touching and one way or another everyone can relate with her story. It's a highly recommended book.

Besides this book the only other bestseller I can recommend about this subject is

Format: Paperback
I used this book on the advice of my counselor. When I leafing thru it, my first reaction was skepticism. I gained 80 lbs after the death of my husband, and I failed at every diet I tried. Then I read this book and learned about the emotional component of overeating as well as under eating. So now my constant companion is Ed, and I make sure all the decisions about food are mine, and never let him get the last word in.

Read it. You'd be surprised at how effective you can become recognizing when Ed is trying to run the show regarding food.

I have never written a review....who has the time? And I have read MANY, MANY books on eating disorders. This book, however, is worth the time to express how well written it is! I loved her honesty and thoroughness. I loved her hope. I loved her simplicity in writing....nothing flowery or overly deep and wordy. In my stage of recovery, this is exactly the book I needed to read. I will be purchasing her first book today.

Don't hesitate to buy....a great, great book.
