Dying to be Beautiful

This book offers a boost out of the black hole of food fixations: anorexia, bulimia, and exercise dependence. The authors review the standard therapies (behavioral, cognitive, psychodynamic, family, support groups, drugs) and include appendixes on relevant literature and treatment resources. But it is the detailed, heart -rending stories of struggle and triumph-including Schwirzer's own-that lift the heart and reveal the secret of victory: breaking the isolation and turning the eyes away from self to fix them on God.
