Unbearable Lightness

I honestly never thought that I would read this book, it initially didn't rank very high on my 'must read' list. Sure, I saw the Oprah interview and I've seen Ally McBeal so I was aware that Portia de Rossi struggled with anorexia for nearly two decades. What I did not know was that this book is not about the recovery from anorexia but an honest look into what the mind of someone who suffers from severely disordered eating.

If you are someone important to a young woman or girl, or you are one of the millions who feel inadequate when comparing yourself to the actresses and models on every TV, magazine, silver screen and giant billboard then please read this book. I promise it won't be a waste of your time.
