"I am a 26 year old woman who has struggled with BBD for many years. I thought I was absolutely crazy until I happened to pick this book up about 6 years ago and found that other people are just like me. It has forever changed me since then. It has given me a name for my actions and piece of mind knowing that I am not alone. I have found strength in this book and can now happily say that I am recovering and functioning again in society as a "normal" person..."

"Many BDD sufferers encounter ignorance and misunderstanding about their condition from families and even mental health professionals. This book was a life saver, as it was refreshing to hear someone understand the condition. As a BDD sufferer, it may be hard to verbalize just how painful the condition is. A lot of us are worried that we will be mistaken as vain, silly or narcissistic. This isn't true. For anyone who wants to understand BDD, get this book."

"I read about Dr. Phillips in the Boston Globe and went to see her. I was self-conscious, and I didn't want to look in the mirror or meet new people."

"Before I saw Dr. Phillips on TV, I didn't want to leave my house at all. My isolation and depression were so severe that I was suicidal. Slowly, after beginning treatment with her, I began to see some light."
