I am a trainee mediator and this was just the book I was looking for. It is concise and highlights some of the core skills which are important in mediation which can be easily lost sight of. I have read this book from cover to cover and it will definately be one I will dip in to again and again.
This is a very honest and insightful account of depression. It really captures the bleakest depths of this illness which many many people will relate to but also provides HOPE that recovery really is possible.
Thank you Sally for writing this wonderful book. I like the exploration of your past and how you relate this to your depressive illness. I'm certain it will go a long way to help fight the stigma of mental illness.
Having suffered from anorexia in the past and still have 'issues' with food and body image this book was one of the most influential for self recovery I have read on the subject and has helped me gain a better perspective about the ubiquitous issue of body image for women everywhere. It has also helped me with issues of self-worth - well done to the author - a great book and an enjoyable read with lots of little anecdotes from individuals about their own personal experiences. I would recommend it to anyone struggling with or affected by an eating disorder.
