I bought this book after being recommended it in therapy for anorexia and it is brilliant. Each chapter is about something different ie assertiveness,time of the month,recovery etc but its all written with little folktale stories with hidden meanings and then psychology in between to help you understand the story and figure out why you have the relationship with food that you do and ways in which to overcome it. It is written in a way that can help overeaters,anorexics,bullimics etc everyone really as they are all just behaviours and it al comes down to almost the same problem.
Really has helped me see things in a different light and try to move foward in my recovery well worth reading.

This book is wonderful. I was as a dramatherapist with young people and adults with eating issues, and this book has become a guide for myself and for their journeys through the wilderness of an eating issue. It really is brilliant!
Although, I'd to add, I have just ordered a new copy for the hospital I work at, and I'm dissapointed that I have recieved a copy that is titled "Eating n the light of the moon: how women can let go of compulsive eating through metaphor and storytelling" rather than the advertised title. As a therapist the title version I now have feels less open and approachable. But otherwise, the contents are still a book full of treasures!
