Read full description of the books:Pretty phenomenal read, fascinating for anybody in or near an eating disorder. Just recently finished this one and let me assure you, I had to read some sentences or paragraphs four or five times because I just needed to eat this shit up. NO PUN INTENDED. I absorbed this book and its messages. Very valuable information, but will take a while to digest.
So, she "blames" the mothers. But not really.
She blames generations of feminism. But not really.
She blames ....wait, she isn't blaming shit. She is explaining one of the most complex issues of our society in an intelligent and meaningful way. Pull up a chair and listen closely.
The best part is, and why I learned so much and why this is a winner, Kim CHernin gets women. She gets what makes us tick. She gets what motivates us. She gets why we do what we do when we do it. This book spoke to mothers and daughters. The book spoke the damn truth about mothers and daughters. And sisters. This book messaged my brain and comforted my confusion and pain I have due growing up under two sisters with eating disorders.
This book was damn inspiring too. Because at the root of this disease is the desire to overcome the body and its limitations. Its about the desire to grow and be loved and to be human. Its about the desire to evolve as a person. Its about the desire of identity and the power claimed in one.
I could on, because this book really hit the nerves in me that lay dormant in me for a while. Good thing that happened because my therapist was really doing it for me recently.
Good news: broke out the art pad and pastels!
