More About the Author

Esther Kane, MSW, Registered Clinical Counselor, author and women's emotional well-being expert earned a Bachelor of Social Work from Toronto's Ryerson University before completing a Masters of Social Work from Vancouver's University of British Columbia by the time she was only 27 years of age. Not too shabby for a woman who at one point in her life contemplated dropping out of high school and leaving academia behind. But her passion to learn, grow and eventually help - especially women - won out, leading Esther to become a psychotherapist and to help her clients become "unstuck" in their lives.

It's Not About The Food is particularly near and dear to Esther's heart as she has over 19 years of solid recovery from a life-threatening eating disorder herself. Today, the happily married writer and psychotherapist who has her own private practice, is living the life she always dreamed of on the west coast of Canada. Her goal now is to help other women achieve their dreams - through her books and her free, monthly e-zine: www.estherkane.com.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wasn't blown away by this book, it was just okay. In my opinion there was way too much quoting and not enough original content.

Format: Paperback
Esther Kane writes, 'If you could wave a magic wand and make this focus on food, weight and how you look disappear completely, just think of what you could accomplish with all the time you've gained.' It's Not About the Food gives you tools, techniques and thought-provoking exercises that can help guide you through healing issues with weight, body image and eating disorders. It's not magic, it's a long process, and Esther's expert guidance and friendly writing style gently guides, nudges and pushes you towards a healthier, happier life in your own body.

Format: Paperback
Reading Esther Kane's book revealed frightening things to me about myself, my friends, the twisted values of the world we live in. But she also offers the means of rescue. It was like being offered good advice by your best friend and an expert simultaneously.

In the west, our unhealthy relationship to food and dieting is perhaps the nearest thing we have to a modern day plague. This book gives each of us the means to fight back.
