Reviews for Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

“Describing a problem is easy; coming up with creative and effective solutions is the real challenge. With a foundation of one deceptively simple metaphor, Wachter and Marcus build a book for young people that is almost all solution. But kids aren’t the only beneficiaries here. Adults with body image problems would be wise to learn the ‘Spell Breakers’ in this book.”
– Thom Rutledge, co-author of Life Without Ed, author of The Self-Forgiveness Handbook

 

“In Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Breaking the “I Feel Fat” Spell, Wachter and Marcus have created a great offering for an important population. Mirror, Mirror seeks to soothe self-doubt and body image anxiety in kids before they fall prey to disordered eating. The authors talk to the reader in a direct manner that cultivates educated understanding while also encouraging self-reflection and healthier thinking. Just as crucially, they help adults interact with kids using kid-friendly language and concepts. This is an upbeat, solution-oriented book that will make a positive impact on kids and parents alike.”
– Dr. Lucie Hemmen, author of Parenting a Teen Girl and The Teen Girl’s Survival Guide

 

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Breaking the “I Feel Fat” Spell brings new insight to an issue that is becoming more and more confusing and heartbreaking for parents and kids. The authors speak with families and not at them. Each ‘Spell Breaker’ gives parents the tools they need to work with their kids and help them develop the self-esteem they deserve. Kids don’t have to suffer in silence and parents don’t have to feel powerless. I think this book will be a life changer for many families.”
