Excellent alternative view
A truly eye opening viewpoint on binge eating - it has helped me enormously. I would highly recommend.

Transforming hope to a reality
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Having read the book prior to purchasing the audio book I knew what I was in for - a completely radical yet simple way of addressing a life hijacking problem which silently and hidden affects many. I have found it very powerful to 'hear' the work and be able to replay sections where I was only half listening, and I am hopeful of really being able to embrace what seems such a genuine answer to a really difficult problem I have grappled with for years and years. I personally have even said to different therapists I had felt 'addicted to binge eating and not only the initial highs of that but the awful lows that follow.' How clearly this is expressed in this potentially life changing book, and amplified in its clear and understanding reading.
Thank you both for giving me hope, and I so hope that I (and many others) will be able not only to continue to 'touch' the concept, but to grab hold of it and totally embrace it, freeing myself (ourselves) from the chains of this disordered way of living and eating.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Brain over Binge?
Which character – as performed by Lydia Wente – was your favourite?
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
This is a humble clear self help book where Kathryn Hansen shares her life changing realisations and develops practical skills and techniques for suffers to use. Lydia Wente, herself a recovered bulimic binge eater adds a depth of understanding in her clear reading. Along with the hard copy this audio book makes and irresistible combination - and the same can be said of Kathryn and Lydia!
Thank you both for giving me hope, and I so hope that I will be able not only to continue to 'touch' the concept, but to grab hold of it and totally embrace it, freeing myself from the chains of this disordered way of living and eating, something which you have both been able to do through this new approach, and I'm sure many others have too. Thank you.

After counselling and medication I stopped binging and purging but then it returned with a vengeance!
This book has felt like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, I honestly feel like I can live a life without binging now :)
This book is utterly fantastic! Thank you for taking the time to write this during a time which I'm sure was already busy enough with two small children and one on the way!

Kathryn puts binging in a new perspective. It's just a habit which can be corrected. I'm impressed and a believer.

I am now 18 years into this eating disorder (or should I say was) my story mirrors the writers. I tried every single thing.
then I read this book.
