This book was an amazing read, although I wouldn't reccomend it for adolecence or adults who are not fully recovered from ed, because if the ed is still controlling their minds, they will use the information in this book as a way to further their own eds. There is a lot of detailed information that can give a person "tips and tricks". But it is a very gritty and true account of eating disorders, with wonderful writing style that is reminicent of Mayra hornbachers' "wasted".

I have never written a book review before. This book actually made me angry. Being in the field of medicine and also struggling with A/B for 20 years, I found Erica's writing to be describing someone with Borderline Personality Disorder. She frequently speaks about her "Norwegian Blond" good looks. She complains about male attention and is constantly rude describing others in her life i.e. "Chemo Lady", "chubby children" etc. She really upset me when she wrote about her daughters. I pray they never read this garbage when older. In reality, her children should have been taken away. I would not recommend this book to anyone. Her book reminds me of the author James Frey and as I write this, the credibility of Casey Anthony. It offers nothing in the way to help overcome eating disorders nor is it very entertaining.
