Blending personal narrative and investigative reporting, Emmy Award-winning journalist Cole Kazdin reveals that disordered eating is an epidemic crisis killing millions of women ...
and why there's hope.
"A feat of reporting in the hope of helping people repair their relationship with their bodies and food."
"One of my parenting fears is passing on my messed-up 1980s food issues to my children. Reading about Cole’s journey, and how she thinks about reframing and repairing those issues is both calming and helpful."
EMILY OSTER, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF EXPECTING BETTER
"What’s Eating Us is a vital contribution to the literature on disordered eating, and a must-read for anyone hungry for real data and hard-boiled hope on the subject of eating, diets, and wellness.”
CHRISTIE TATE, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GROUP
"Both a memoir and a study of how disordered eating has become both normalized and encouraged in American culture...Kazdin's conversational tone and writing style make this book accessible to all readers.”
"As much a personal story as an examination of body anxiety...Kazdin’s painful honesty is leavened with humor and irony.”
KIRKUS (STARRED REVIEW)
"Reading What’s Eating Us is like sitting down with one of your best friends, who also happens to be an incredible journalist ... A must read for women, no matter what their relationship is with food and their bodies."
JENNIFER GREY, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUT OF THE CORNER: A MEMOIR
"A must read. Kazdin recounts her own struggle, and surrounds it with robust research and stories ... She beautifully and tragically encapsulates how almost all of us are negatively affected by the toxic diet culture that we live in, how that makes full recovery so elusive to most, and how we can start to get back.”
