Reader Reviews:

Dying To Be Thin, helped me in ways beyond measure. I knew that a lot of what I was doing to my body was destructive, but only after reading the book did I want to seek help to end the disease. A big thank you to the authors.

I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially those who suffer from anorexia or bulimia. I purchased this book at the height of my disease and it gave me the courage to quit. The stories are real and so easy to relate to. I would love to someday personally thank the authors.
