Recommends it for: Anyone who struggles with eating patterns
This was a very good book. I'd heard how good Geneen Roth's books were and this certainly did not disappoint. I can hear a lot of myself in this book. I can't wait to read all of her work.
Hands down the best book I've read so far of its type...and that's saying a lot because I try to read a lot of these things for my work.

GREAT book- I highly recommend- makes eating conscious, which generalizes and pulls to deeper places that also need to be more conscious.

Love Geneen Roth. This was one of the first book of hers that I read. It's one that I read over and over again!
A little on the crazy hippie self-help side, but there were a few insights that made it almost worth reading.
Extraordinary. I will be "reading" this book for the rest of my life, I expect.
This book changed my life. Scratch that-- this book saved my life.
