YA-The authors' philosophy is that extra weight is an emotional as well as a physical issue, and that it can be handled, in part, by learning to distinguish between emotional and physical hunger. The book's supportive, empathetic tone is evidenced in such key messages as: "You are not using food because you lack control, and are undisciplined, or are flawed, but because it is the only way you can take care of yourself for now." Techniques to use to listen to the body, learning to respect and express feelings, using visualization to enlarge spiritual understanding, setting limits, and trusting the process to take you to a new and better place are all discussed. This intelligently presented book will find readers in any library and has great merit as an alternative to the usual recipe and diet books.Catherine Charvat, Kings Park Library, Burke, VA
