People with BDD have written the following books:
Nicole Schnackenberg and Sergio Petro (2016) with a Foreword by Professor Katharine Phillips, Introduction by Professor David Veale and Dr Rob Willson
Despite the extreme suffering experienced by people with BDD, it is possible to learn to cope with and even completely move beyond it. The stories in this volume powerfully attest to this. Gathered here are thirty-six lived experiences of people with BDD and their loved ones. They are stories of tremendous bravery, immeasurable determination and incredible hope.
“This is a landmark book – written mostly by sufferers, family members, and carers of those who have struggled with cruel disorder. Their perspective is invaluable, their voices are powerful, and they uniquely understand the experience of BDD”.
~ Professor Katharine Phillips, MD
