Reviews

"What sets this book apart is the author's incorporation of clinical research findings from the field of eating disorders into the story of one family's struggle . . . [A] compelling story of family strength and an inspiring story for all of us committed to treating individuals with eating disorders."--Evelyn Attia, MD, Director, Center for Eating Disorders, Columbia University Medical Center, Weill Cornell Medical College
"Harriet Brown is an intelligent, elegant writer and this book offers both solace and useful information for families struggling with eating disorders."--Audrey Niffenegger
"One of the most up to date, relevant and honest accounts of one family's battle with the life threatening challenges of anorexia. Brown has masterfully woven science, history and heart throughout this compelling and tender story. Brave Girl Eating was fortunate to have one brave family."--Lynn S. Grefe, Chief Executive Officer, National Eating Disorders Association
"As a woman who once knew the grip of a life-controlling eating disorder, I held my breath reading Harriet Brown's story. As a mother of daughters, I wept for her. Then cheered."--Joyce Maynard
