9780976154747: Skinny Boy: A Young Man's Battle and Triumph Over Anorexia

Challenging the assumption that anorexia is an exclusively female affliction, this compelling memoir is the first to describe how a young man overcame this often fatal disorder. Handsome and popular, Gary had baseball abilities that had attracted the attention of the big leagues, until a shaming inner-voice convinced him that he needed to be thinner, leading to an out-of-control compulsion to exercise and starve himself, causing multiple hospitalizations. Providing strategies for tackling the recovery process and examples of changes in the thinking needed to take those steps, this important narrative comes at a time when eating disorders are at an all-time high in America, afflicting more than 8 million men. Demonstrating how anyone can win the internal battle between mind and body, this much-needed biography offers therapists, sufferers, and their families with powerful tools to help them triumph over this life and death battle.

About the Author:

Gary A. Grahl is a licensed school counselor and a resource person for ANAD (National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders), the nation's oldest non-profit organization dedicated to serving those with eating disorders and their families. He has been featured on television programs such as Extra, Jenny Jones, and Les Brown; and in print media such as the Chicago Sun Times, Men's Health, Milwaukee Journal/Sentinal, Newsday, and Woman's World. He lives in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.

Review:

"Skinny Boy is a compelling and honest first-person account of a vexing human challenge—repairing one's relationship to oneself."  —Psychology Today

"Gary Grahl is a hero and an exceptional writer. Through Skinny Boy, Gary makes a spectacular contribution to the eating disorders field."  —Vivian Hanson Meehan, president and founder, National Association for Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders

"Skinny Boy effectively chronicles the inner dialogue between the anorexic voice urging him to resist treatment and keep getting thinner and his rational mind that reacts with colorful sarcasm but usually succumbs to thoughts of worthlessness. As Grahl proves, eating disorders are not exclusive to either gender."  —Leigh Cohn, editor-in-chief, Eating Disorders: The Journal of Treatment and Prevention

"The running internal dialogue between the author and his eating disorder provides a window into the cognitive and emotional world of individuals suffering from this devastating illness. His style of writing alone makes this book a must read for any professional working with these individuals."  —Michelle Klinedinst, executive director, Rosewood Eating Disorders Center

"More books like this about the male experience with anorexia nervosa need to be written. This book gives insight into that experience. My thanks to Gary Grahl."  Mae S. Sokol, MD, associate professor of psychiatry and pediatrics, Creighton University School of Medicine

"Gary Grahl's powerful story of transformation demonstrates how it is possible for a person to gradually surrender eating disorder thinking and behavior in favor of a life worth living."   —Tom Shiltz, Rogers Memorial Hospital, Eating Disorders Program

"Skinny Boy is a powerful story showing how to win the internal battle between mind and body and triumph over the out-of-control thoughts and feelings common in many of us."  —Men's Health
