5.0 out of 5 stars Al’s Smashed it
By Charli S-O on 9 June 2022
Alex has not only written possibly the most important book this century, that everyone simply needs to read. She’s also written it absolutely beautifully, a talent to behold on a subject that effects everyone in some way. Eloquent, informed, witty but also a big finger to the diet industry, diet culture and the hell it causes so many. This isn’t just an ED recovery story, it’s a well researched journalistic insight into the culture we live in & have grown up in. Well done and more importantly, thank you Alex.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goose pimples….
By Beth Picken on 9 June 2022
I am one chapter in and I have fallen in love with this book. I am one chapter in and I’ve just ordered 4 more copies for my friends and family. I am only one chapter in and I feel an excitement running through me, with the realisation that this is the new me…guess it’s time to start chapter two!
Thank you Alex ❤️
