Decoding Anorexia

I have been waiting to make this announcement for almost two years now.  With a FedEx delivery this morning (followed by the solid hour it took for me to stop screaming and peel myself off the ceiling), I learned that two years of blood, sweat, and tears had finally paid off.

I am more thrilled than you can possibly imagine to announce the acceptance of my third book:

"Decoding Anorexia: How Science Offers Hope for Eating Disorders"

It will be published Summer-ish of 2012 by Routledge.  The manuscript is due in December.

{{Excuse me while I indulge in a few squeals for a minute. Okay, all better now.}}

Cindy Bulik, Director of the Eating Disorders Program at UNC Chapel Hill, is going to write the introduction and serve as medical advisor.

Walter Kaye, Director of the Eating Disorders Program at UCSD and my homeboy (Hugh Laurie was otherwise occupied), will be contributing a chapter as well, likely on translating scientific research into better treatments for anorexia and other eating disorders.

Special thanks to Kim and Cammy for helping me prepare the book proposal, and Laura for virtual hand-holding and a shoulder to cry on as the book was rejected by publisher after publisher after publisher.

yay! congratulations! please, please post if/when available on amazon. The science stuff is the gap I find missing in so many recovery writings but I need that to help make sense of what's going on, so I can understand and assimilate into positive progress. Wow!! Keep smiling, at least ALL the weekend! Jaw ache is NOT an excuse for stopping!

So many congratulations! Wonderful to see work demystifying the notion that eating disorders don't have a strong biological basis.

This is a book that needs to be written, and I'm glad you are writing it! Wish we could have this wonderful resource about the science of anorexia sooner, but I guess I can find a bit of patience. I love the vision of you screaming with joy!
