Unhappiness with your physical appearance can erode your social skills, damage your intimate relationships, and place you at risk for depression, eating disorders, and the devastating problems that accompany low self-esteem.

Powerful techniques to curb self-conscious anxiety. How a body-image diary can help you defeat self-defeating behavior. Corrective thinking patterns to break the cycle of self-critical thoughts. How to be happier, look better, and stop being a victim of negative body image—forever!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Cash is an interesting writer whose main point here is that ``negative body image has little to do with outward appearance: It's a state of mind.'' His goal is to help his readers develop ``an understanding of the psychology of physical appearance-how our outer looks and our inner body image affect our lives.'' Simply put, ``despite...our preoccupation with physical attractiveness, looks aren't everything they're cracked up to be.'' To prove this observation, Cash presents a rigorous eight-point program to help readers create in their minds a new body image-ranging from ``Getting Comfortable with Your Body'' to ``Correcting Your Body Image Errors.'' Cash acknowledges that his book is rooted in basic cognitive therapy techniques, recognizing that ``our emotions stem from how we talk to ourselves about ourselves.'' To this end, he provides helpful progressive relaxation and visualization techniques to help develop what he calls the readers' ``New Inner Voice.'' The book also provides a wide range of graphs, worksheets and questionnaires that are designed to help readers explore and track their relationships to food and self-image, but ultimately these may overwhelm Cash's main concern: ``successful control over your feelings is real control-control that matters.''
