Gary Grahl's Skinny Boy Is The First to Tackle Man-orexia
Many books have been written about the female experience with eating disorders, but "Skinny Boy" is the only, first-person account of how a young man overcame anorexia, a growing epidemic among males.
Gary Grahl was handsome, popular, and his athletic abilities attracted the attention of the big leagues... that was until “IT,” a shaming inner-voice convinced him to be ever thinner.  His out-of-control compulsion to exercise and starve himself led to multiple hospitalizations, and a life and death battle to win control over the pervasive and dangerous “IT.”  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. read more
