Review quote

"'This book is a giant leap forward in making self-harm understandable to professionals and self-harmers alike.' Marjorie Orr, Director, Accuracy About Abuse 'A ground-breaking book in the subject material and presentation. It's easy to read, yet helps the reader understand the complex nature of self-harm. The life stories are authentic and incredibly moving.' William Stewart, author of A-Z of Counselling: Theory and Practice '...an ideal book for those who self injure, particularly those who also have an eating disorder or alcohol problem. Sutton deals with what is a delicate subject with great sensitivity...this is a book that could change lives. Reader review - Amazon"
