I just reread this book one full time through again-- I usually refer to certain chapters at certain points in my life, but I found myself completely pulled back into compulsion recently-- and once again, this book helped me save myself.
Geneen Roth is inspiring and-- dare I say?-- caring. She speaks to the reader with deep empathy as someone who has been there and truly wishes to help. This book taught me to do the daring thing I had never considered before-- love and value myself. To learn to eat when I was hungry. It sounds so simple to someone who may not struggle with food, but that's what this book does. It teaches you how to eat when you are hungry and it affirms that you are worthy. It is a beautiful book, raw in its empathy and emotion.
Granted, it may not help everyone. Every person is different. But I daresay it will help many, and it certainly helped-- that's an understatement-- me.
