Review quote

"Readers have posted online calling the previous version of this book 'a godsend' and 'the best book out there.' This substantially revised second edition is as good as the first and sets the standard for self-help books. This clearly written, practical guide is invaluable for anyone suffering from binge eating problems." - Roz Shafran, PhD, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Reading, United Kingdom "This is an extremely well written and informative book aimed at helping those with binge eating problems to overcome them. The author is one of the leading experts on cognitive behavioral techniques for eating disorders, and his previous publications have made a major contribution to the literature... The book is a masterpiece of logical structure and a compendium of useful and valuable information." - Behaviour Research and Therapy "By any standard, Dr. Fairburn is the leading authority in our field, so who better to write the definitive book on binge eating? This program is based on vast clinical experience, numerous clinical trials, and a breadth of perspective that few possess. You can trust this book. It is a landmark." - Kelly D. Brownell, PhD, coauthor of Food Fight, Yale University, Connecticut, USA "It is hard to improve a classic, but that is exactly what Dr. Fairburn has done. Overcoming Binge Eating, Second Edition, expands on the author's highly effective treatment. This self-help guide is filled with specific tools that can help reverse unhealthy habits that have trapped you for years. Dr. Fairburn helps you maintain regular eating habits, distract yourself from cravings, stop emotional eating, and address body image issues. My colleagues and I will be recommending this book to all of our clients who feel their eating is out of control." - Robert L. Leahy, PhD, author of The Worry Cure "This book has proved invaluable to individuals who struggle with binge eating, and it has become a trusted tome on the shelf of many therapists, dietitians, and physicians who want to prescribe a non-invasive, evidence-based approach to treating their patients with an eating disorder... Nearly 20 years later, the second edition has been substantially updated to reflect Fairburn's new "enhanced" cognitive-behavioral treatment (CBT-E)... The final verdict? Even if the dog-eared, highlighted original is still sitting on your office shelf, treating yourself to the second edition is well worth the modest price." - Jennifer Thomas, AED Forum
