GAINING on the NYT Bestseller List!

March 11, 2007

Dear Friends,
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!

Work on Eating Disorders
While there are numerous memoirs available chronicling individual women’s struggles with anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders, this is the first book to bring together many people’s stories to create a complete and candid picture of the recovery process. Aimee Liu has skillfully brought together firsthand accounts of recovery to create a realistic roadmap for the journey. This book also includes informational sidebars, written by professionals in the field, on topics including treatment options, choosing the right therapist, the pros and cons of medication, how parents and spouses can help, and much more.
How do anorexia and bulimia impact life AFTER recovery? GAINING is one of the first books about eating disorders to connect the latest scientific insights to the personal truth of life before, during, and especially after anorexia and bulimia.
