First of all, I have to say that I got this book in hopes of being able to read about ways that I could help students at the college I am a campus minister at with eating disorder issues. That being said, I was a little disappointed to see that this book wasn't meant to help me with that. I don't mean that it's a bad book, just not what I was hoping for. However for the purpose that it was written for, I would say it does a good job. Dr. Jantz takes time to walk through each chapter in a very easy to understand way and then takes time at the end of each chapter to have an activity for the reader to complete. In the introduction of the book, Jantz explains that it is important that you don't skip over these questions/activities, but instead answer them and do them honestly. He also admits that this book is not meant to be a stand-alone 'fix' for a person who is struggling with some sort of eating disordered, but it meant to be used in conjunction with a professional counselor. I can honestly say I was convicted a little by some of the things I read in the book concerning disordered eating, which is not really a specific eating disorder. Jantz takes time to explain the effects that your food choices and eating habits have on you not only physically, but emotionally as well as spiritually. Overall I would recommend Jantz book for anyone who is struggling with their image in relation to how it ties in with what they are eating. It's a fresh take with some helpful advice for everyone regarding a healthy relationship between you and food.
