    Do you eat when you feel upset? Do you turn to chocolate when you’ve had a bad day? Do you want to lose weight?This self-help course, designed by Anne Morrison, Clinical and Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapist, can help you change your comfort eating habits. It guides you through a step by step process which will help you identify and change your relationship with food and how you cope with upset in your life.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This review is based on the book up to the first self-hypnosis track. I've tried to listen to it about four times now, and I had to write this review about the music. It distracted me and made it difficult to get into the exercise as instructed. In the first self-hypnosis track: The beginning of the piece of music was very loud, with sort of a crescendo of sound. In one case, the crescendo happened on "3" in the hypnosis countdown (where "1" is the most relaxed), so just as I was getting truly relaxed and into it, the music sort of woke me up. Also, it sounded like the music was skipping in a lot of places during this track, and I couldn't help focusing on it. At the end of the segment, the music and Anne's voice just cuts off abruptly, and it goes into the next exercise. Another thing I would change is the amount of questions you have to answer in the first segment. It gets to a point where you feel like you're basically writing the same thing over and over, and it's boring, which distracts from any insight or revelation that might come from this activity.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The explanation of Cognitive-Behavioral Hypnosis was very interesting. The first segment, while a bit tedious, did help with setting a concrete goal. Anne Morrison's vocal style in the self-hypnosis tracks was very relaxing. I gave "performance" five stars because of her vocal style.

    Have you listened to any of Anne Morrison’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first book by Anne Morrison that I've listened to.

    Do you think How to Stop Being an Emotional Eater needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I think it needs a follow-up book in which the music issue is fixed. I wish I could have gotten more into the self-hynosis.

    Any additional comments?

    I think this book is worth listening to, because there are good concepts here which help with self-examination. Even though I couldn't get into the self-hypnosis part, I did find myself using ideas from the book (like leaving food on my plate and not eating in front of the TV or the computer).
