Being Ana Reviews
Shani’s openness and clarity in sharing her experience with Anorexia offers a unique opportunity to gain empathy and understanding for the living of an eating disorder.
Shani Raviv is a great inspiration to the many millions out there struggling with eating disorders. Her book being Ana is honest, sensitive, witty, brutal and so much more.
Candid descriptions of what must be a difficult and deeply personal, yet important, story to tell.
Beautifully bold and authentically told being Ana is the best autobiography I’ve read to date about a young woman’s struggle to find herself and to learn to love the self she finds, as is.
Shani shares her story with genuine honesty, courage, and heart. Her book gives an in depth look at the struggle and victory over this horrific disease. Shani is living proof that you can overcome Anorexia.
A fascinating window into the frightening and relentless world of Anorexia and, equally, young womanhood.
Ms. Raviv did an amazing job of simultaneously showing how her eating disorder functioned to keep her from being conscious of the underlying issues while in the depths of it, and showing the reader how all of her behaviors, thoughts and feelings were directly related to those underlying issues.
