An important book
on 11 November 2009
'Sitting at table for dinner became my most dreaded moment of the day; and my day was spent calculating how to avoid any glance at my plate.'
Just one of the great many lines from Emily Halban's entralling book, which lingers deep in the mind afterwards. Fascinated by the subject myself for several years, reading Emily Halban's important book was a truely absorbing, moving and intriguing story of one human's years of suffering, the fear of life and the conquest for perfection, themes which all humans can relate to. So interesting in fact, I've read it twice to date and am sure I will read again.
A book not only about overcoming a disease but also of overcoming and beating the social pressures that life can build and inject into one human being, thus truely affecting their ability to think for themselves and live their life in full control.
A must read! Congratulations to Emily Halban for beating it and for writing this book for everyone to learn and share from.
