Reviews

"This book is an insightful account of one person's struggle with an eating disorder. It offers a helpful mix of information, ranging from the personal to the professional. I expect this book will be helpful to young adults with an eating disorder and their families."-Daniel le Grange, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Director, Eating Disorders Program at The University of Chicago "Humor and stark honesty are Arnold's trademarks. Most writers uncritically throw in everything that has ever been said of eating disorders; Arnold pares it down to up-to-date and accessible science. This book is a wonderful combination of wit and wisdom."-Laura Collins, author of Eating with Your Anorexic "In this well-written and readable book, Carrie Arnold guides the adolescent with an eating disorder through what to expect in the recovery process using her own often-bumpy recovery as illustration. Providing tips for everyday survival in the real world and a broader view to help stay the course to health, her message is a powerful and encouraging one, made all the more believable to the adolescent sufferer because she has been there. Carrie also provides information on internal thoughts of the eating disorder that can help parents gain insight into what their adolescent is experiencing and how they might respond."-Kathleen A. Mammel, MD, Chief, Adolescent Pediatrics, William Beaumont Hospital, and Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Wayne State University "Wise, hopeful, funny, and inspiring. Next to Nothing unravels the mysteries of eating disorder treatment and recovery. Carrie Arnold makes sense out of the confusion as she guides us along her personal journey of healing. I wish my family and I could have read this book during my struggle with anorexia and bulimia. This is a must-read!"-Jenni Schaefer, author of Life Without Ed: How One Woman Declared Independence from Her Eating Disorder and How You Can Too
