The Woman in the Mirror is all of us, and this compelling account of how feelings about our bodies affect us throughout our lives is filled with inspiration and hope. Food for thought indeed * Susan Ringwood, Chief Executive of Beat, the UK's leading charity supporting people with eating disorders and campaigning with them * Bulik has absolutely exposed the 'can't-talk-about-it' cultural facts of life for women and girls regarding how they feel about their body. The Woman in the Mirror is a wonderful book, written in language that speaks to all, and is a serious-must read * Lynn S. Grefe, president and CEO of the National Eating Disorders Association * For a variety of reasons, some women obsess about their physical shape and appearance, many believing themselves woefully wanting. The Woman in the Mirror suggests reasonable and practical ways to defuse this kind of destructive thinking, and have happier, more productive lives * Marianne Legato M.D., author of Why Men Never Remember and Women Never Forget * Bulik's practical advice-grounded in evidence-based research and coupled with the experience and wisdom of a woman, mother, teacher, and clinician-give the reader an untethered look at the reality of how both our biology and environment contribute to devastating eating disorders and other problems with self-image. Brava! * Chevese Turner, CEO, Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

To me, the book is a good reminder that life is so much more than just a marathon for beauty and success, and it is a pity that we so often forget about it.
