How to Survive Eating Disorders

The How to Survive series:

A brief glimpse into the different types of eating disorders. The author, Stephanie Anne Allen, gives her insight from a personal and professional viewpoint.

The narration by Holly Holt was very well done.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

How to survive series

I live with mental illness. This series did a great job of helping me understand different mental illnesses, and how to cope with them. These books weren’t too intellectual, meaning they didn’t get super technical, and spoke in a way that I could understand.

Eating Disorders

This book goes over different types of eating disorders. The author herself suffered with binge eating and went through bariatric surgery. Her brother suffered from anorexia. The only thing that might turn some people away from this book is the amount of religious content. This book was given to me for free at my request, and I provided this voluntary review.

Cheer leading the recovery

Firstly, I should say that I do not have an eating disorder myself (and I'm not in denial either!), but I do work coaching people that have gotten stuck in life, so this was an interesting audiobook to me.

Stephanie starts with the good dutiful work of defining the eating disorders she will be addressing and gives advice for medical and psychological support for the listener who may not yet have sought help. Once this is done she authoritatively encourages the listener to recognise their own value, as the deficit of this where the disorder has its roots and this is the key to recovery. Stephanie's faith in God's love comes into play here. Many in my country are cynical Brits and my not warm to this, but I wholeheartedly approved - after all, pure positive thinking could simply be a self-deception, but a loving God who is for us is someone we can come to agree with.

I liked that the book and chapters were short and concise and it's worth mentioning that Holly Holt delivers a narration that is compassionate yet believable, hitting the right tone that brings to life what could have turned dry in another's hands.

Stephanie speaks from her own struggles with an eating disorder and so speaks with authority. And even Holly the narrator chips in with a few words of her own experience at the end too. So the message to the sufferer is 'It can be done, You are not alone in your struggle. You have great value in God's eyes and can have in your own'.
