Review quote

'... the book is equally helpful for families and friends of someone working to beat their eating disorder - giving them the support they need to be a powerful ally in recovery. Most importantly, this book gives hope - that life without an eating disorder can be lived to the full.' Susan Ringwood, Chief Executive, Beat 'Decades of clinical experience come to light in this plain-speaking self-help text for both sufferers and carers ... the book is infused with hope for recovery provided the reader is prepared to dig-in and do the work necessary for a successful self-help journey.' Cindy Bulik, UNC Eating Disorders Program 'This excellent book is highly recommended for adult sufferers with eating disorders who wish to use a self-help guide for the first step, and hopefully the only step that will be necessary, in overcoming their eating problems.' James Mitchell, Neuropsychiatric Research Institute 'The writers communicate in a clear, direct, compassionate and honest voice, enriched by extensive clinical experience, that will help the reader to feel understood, to understand what maintains their eating disorder ... this is a valuable resource for people with eating disorders considering change, for carers who feel lost, and for therapists who are seeking to help their clients build a foundation for enduring change.' Tracey Wade, Flinders University, Australia 'This is the long overdue book that adult sufferers of an eating disorder and their carers have been waiting for. It has been masterfully written from a wealth of practical experience and will without doubt become a mandatory resource. It surpasses any of the other self help guides in quality and scope and will ensure that those who read it are impelled to act.' Stephen Touyz, University of Sydney '... an absolute must-have for anyone interested in learning how to successfully overcome an eating disorder ... packed full of information on how a self-directed CBT approach can be very effective ... I highly recommend it as a solid, science-based, self-help guide to beating an eating disorder ... a book of inspiration and hope for all who choose to initiate change.' Doody's
