This work was a joy to publish. The enthusiasm of the author and the receptivity of this title in academic circles and with the general public was astonishing!!! Over 2000 copies sold with very little marketing in the first 18 months -- Extremely unusual!!!From the Author:
I wrote The Taming of the Chew: A Holistic Guide to Stopping Compulsive Eating after struggling throughout my life with food control issues. I was bulimic for seven years, anorexic for a time and obese for many years. None of this was any fun and all and I felt my energy so bound up! I was miserable a good deal of the time and quite depressed and anxious. When I was approaching my fiftieth birthday I decided I had to really do something special. I went to Death Valley, California and went on a Vision Quest. That is, I spent four days and nights all alone in the desert with no food. I meditated, I thought about my life and where I had traveled. I wanted to find a focus for the next fifty years I plan to spend walking around on this planet. It was then that the ideas for this book began to form. By the end of my Quest, I had made my plans. The "Chew" has proven helpful to thousands of people already -- mostly female but many males as well. I combine my l! ife experience, my professional experience as a NH Licensed Psychologist with over 20 years of experience and my experience as a Doctor of Holistic Health in this work. It is readable, both funny and tragic at times. If you decide to read it, let me know what you think! I highly value any feedback. Thanks!
