The book itself provides an indepth look at BDD, my wife was recently diagnosed with the disorder. However, the book simply tells you about the symptoms and what the patient is going through. It provide little insight on obtaining help. My wife met with the author Katherine Phillips but was only offered a place in her new study for her new book. I feel that writing about the disorder is just that. Nobody seems to be offering a solution. For the price, it's a good book to share with freinds and family to help them understand the pain and stress the disorder puts on everday life. Thanks.

Katharine Phillips's pioneering work on BDD will help to change the lives of many. I have suffered for over a decade with this chronic, annoying condition. Her clinical expertise and innate ability to relate to her readers through various case studies and the personal interactions with her patients leads one to a true understanding of this disorder. But the author goes a step further by providing treatment techniques which the patient & their loved ones can employ to alleviate/eliminate the emotionally painful behaviors caused by BDD. I will read it again and refer to it during the difficult times I have in coping with BDD. wisedumi, Texas

I have BDD and this book has helped me realize That I'm not alone, the stories have given me insight and new direction in my struggle with BDD.
But without my faith in the lord I don't think I would have made it through the Service for four
years (discharge 91) being housebound for about
3 Years afterwards until my Parents bringing me into the hospital in 93 for treatment I was destined for suicide because I did not want to be
a burden to my family, I recieve social security now but I am still dedicated to get back to work
and overcome this.
