GAINING on the NYT Bestseller List!
I am so pleased to let you know that GAINING: The Truth About Life After Eating Disorders -- made the NYT Bestseller list -- #28 for the week ending March 3!
This means that the publisher will invest in further publicity, that I will be able to reach out to many more people...and get the word out that there IS life after eating disorders, and that it is much richer and more interesting and complex than any of us anticipated!
There are so many misconceptions and myths that need to be debunked before we can free ourselves and our culture from the notions that we have to suffer to be "perfect" and that women can and must be judged by the look of their bodies! I'm trying to do my part with GAINING, and it helps so much to have your support.
I send you all my gratitude!
Advance praise for GAINING
“This book is the most sensitive, insightful, and beautifully crafted connection I have seen of personal experience with what scientists know about eating disorders. It is rich in emotion, understanding of human interaction, and lessons on culture, weight, and eating.”
