Reviews

"In "Sexual Anorexia: Overcoming Sexual Self-Hatred, " Patrick Carnes explores more of the continuum of human sexual dysfunction. With all the moral injunctions about sex that most of us received during childhood, it is difficult to see a lack of, or even revulsion of, sexual desire as a serious problem. In comparing these areas of difficulty with the anorexic and bulimic eating disorders, Carnes masterfully presents an easily understood structure of the disease process and a recovery regime that offers real hope for comfort in relationships."
--Pia Mellody, RN, addictions and codependence consultant, author of "Facing Codependence, Breaking Free," and "Facing Love Addiction"
"A valuable resource for men and women who have been afraid and confused about sex. Patrick Carnes has made another remarkable contribution that fosters sexual recovery and sexual healing. Using his trademark blend of wisdom, practical strategies, and personal stories, Carnes takes readers through a step-by-step program to discover the meaning and joys of healthy sexual intimacy."
--Wendy Maltz, MSW, sex therapist, author of "The Sexual Healing Journey" and co-author of "In the Garden of Desire"
