Impactful for the some

I am a medical doctor and was referred to this book by my courageous daughter who has Binge Eating Disorder and Major Depression. She stated that the author’s insight, honesty, and simplicity “blew her mind”. I agree. It puts into words and clarifies many concepts that our family spent years figuring out...and that we are still working on. My daughter is doing well now, but I wish I had read this book years ago. This book will not be for everyone...will not be appreciated by everyone...but will be loved by some. I purchased both the written book and the audio book because of the convenience of listening to it given the particulars of my schedule this week. I will say that I preferred the written format in this case. The subject matter is intense and there are times when your mind wants to stop and reflect on the past. Although I enjoy audiobooks, in this case I preferred hearing the words in my own voice at my own pace. The reader was at times robotic. Overall I recommend the book for the subject matter. It has potential to save the life of an appropriate reader.

great perspective on emotional eating

overall, fantastic information, very motivational and encouraging in a realistic way. there were a few moments that felt out of touch or outdated, but I would still recommend it to anyone who struggles with bingeing or compulsive overeating.

Female Focused

Good book, but wish I’d known how female focused it was before listening. However, most of the chapters apply regardless of gender.

Short

Unfortunately I did not read the details closely enough prior to purchase. This book was only a very short intro/story and I was expecting details on how to put these ideas into action.

Life changing

Geneen Roth has an amazing way with words and emotions. This is the opposite of diets that tell you what and when to eat. In fact, it doesn’t seem to be about food really. It’s more about emotions. A must read for all binge or compulsive eaters or those who struggle with their weights despite ‘good’ diets.
