This book has really changed my approach to talking and listening to my teenage daughter and her body image anxieties. I would highly recommend this book to any Mum who is even slightly worried about their child.

Great book, easy to understand and follow.

This book has given me confidence and hope for my future. After receiving my diagnosis for BDD I often felt lost and alone but after reading Chloe’s story and the therapys suggested by Anne Marie and Lauren I can finally look forward in my life. Thank you.

Highly recommended!

Such a well written and insightful book, both informative and encouraging without being preachy or unpersonal. The personal extracts make the reader more able to understand the mindset of someone dealing with condition and I felt more informed and able to support them. Highly recommended!

I’d recommend this book to anyone who is struggling to deal with or is connected to someone with a body image issue. It’s a thoughtful yet thorough look at this increasingly widespread problem. We need to find a way of encouraging people to live healthily and embrace the beauty that comes with that. Read this book – it will really help with understanding how it feels for the victims of body dysmorphia.

This should be required reading

It’s shocking how early in life body image problems can begin. As a father of two primary school children, it’s been worrying to hear them say things like ‘Am I fat?’ and ‘I don’t like the way I look.’

Reading Chloe’s story, I’ve been struck by just how widespread body image problems are in our society. I’m so grateful that books like this are now available – if only it could be required reading in our schools, I think it would help a lot of people.

Brilliant book on body image problems!

BDD is not a vanity issue. This book hit the nail on the head!

Chloe’s story is easy to follow, easy to sympathise with and the interjections from Lauren and Annemarie are spot on. I would heavily recommend this book to anyone that is suffering from BDD and body image problems in general as it is practical, fairly innovative in its approach and more than anything easy to follow!

Thank you Chloe for sharing your story, and Lauren and Annemarie for Part 2 and your recovery methods!

Very helpful

I really liked this book. I read straight through it first time to get an idea of what it would be like, and now I’m working through the exercises at my own pace . I’ve struggled with body dysmorphia for around 3 years now and I feel really relieved to find this book. I I’m already feeling more positive about myself and I’m sure that will continue.

Thank you Chloe and Lauren for this book.

Amazon Customer

Absolutely brilliant!

This book really helped me to understand my condition more. After years of being told I was an attention seeker and always looking for compliments, reading Chloe’s story helped me to understand that this is not the case. I knew it wasn’t but others didn’t, and that was often hard to overlook.

The coping methods and techniques outlined by Lauren Callaghan are extremely helpful and I know I will be using these as much as I can.
I have been taking this book with me to my own therapy sessions and my psychologist has agreed that it is a genuinely helpful and effective book, with correct explanations and techniques for overcoming BDD.

I definitely think that, even without therapy sessions, this book would greatly help others who are struggling to understand their illness and begin to overcome it.

Amazing job and thank you Chloe for sharing your story!
