Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In this short, easy-to-read book aimed primarily at women, the author writes from her own experience as an abused wife and compulsive overeater, as well as her experience counseling clients with the same problems. Virtue (Yo-Yo Syndrome Diet, HarperCollins, 1989) believes that overeating is the result of emotional emptiness, an emptiness that must be addressed in therapy rather than through a focus on diet or food intake. She touts her own success with the self-talk procedures she outlines, describing herself thus: "I am a Ph.D. with four college degrees in psychology, a best-selling author, have appeared on many national talk shows, have a wonderful relationship, [and] a healthy and attractive figure." While not all readers may be able to use such credentials in their own therapy, librarians should anticipate many requests for this book following Virtue's appearances on daytime talk shows.
