Editorial Reviews

Review

With clinical notes and information on new and unique approaches, Liu's effort offers something for everyone effected by this issue, whether personally, peripherally, or professionally.
 
--Publishers Weekly

“A terrific book with a compelling interplay between the perspectives of professionals and the stories of people who have successfully recovered from eating disorders. Highly informative and a great read.”—B. Timothy Walsh, MD, Columbia University Medical Center

“This book establishes new ground by walking the reader through the entire recovery process, from the initial turning points at the start of the odyssey to reclaiming one's life after an eating disorder.”— Judith D. Banker, past president, Academy for Eating Disorders

“I’ve read countless books about eating disorders, but I’ve never seen one like this. Combining the professional wisdom of leading experts with personal experiences from women and men all over the globe, this book fills a gap on the recovery bookshelf. Anyone who has been touched by an eating disorder needs to read this.”—Jenni Schaefer, author of Life without Ed

“An honest and often painful account of how ED can rob you of yourself, with a central focus on the realistic and complex process of recovery. The reader is able to intimately delve into the mind of a person with an eating disorder and examine his/her feelings at each point of the recovery process. Liu gives the gift of feeling the feelings, sharing the thoughts, and being aware that recovery looks different for every single person. As a parent, this is invaluable. The book gives me cautious, realistic hope for my daughter.”—Lauren Calig, mother of a child with an eating disorder, writing for the National Eating Disorders Association’s newsletter

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book, and I am very glad to have read it. As someone who was anxious and concerned about my progress in my own recovery, I am very thankful to have read this book. It was an amazing resource for showing me the diversity of experiences and validating my own unique experiences. It made me realize that I am doing better than I have given myself credit for! I am very grateful.

The only slightly negative thing I have to say about this book is that I would have preferred more information specific to binge eating disorder (particularly for those who are overweight), as the book tended to have a much heavier focus on anorexia and bulimia (and those who were underweight prior to recovery). However, I still gained a lot of useful information and inspiration from this book and highly recommend it!
