Reviews

'The authors - all intelligent, articulate, sometimes witty women - tell it like it is. They describe their struggle against bulimia, day after day, year after year, decade after decade. I recommend this book to mental health professionals, counselors, psychologists and anyone affected by bulimia. It will strike a chord with anyone who is experiencing or has experienced an eating disorder, as well as their friends and families.'
