Emotional Eating "Breaking Free From. Emotional Eating Pt IV."

The last three chapters of Geneen Roth's book Breaking Free from Emotional Eating starts with chapter 13 and how fat people loath themselves and then it moves into about 15 different things to do to begin liking (loving) yourself. Forgive yourself and forgive others. Page 171 is the first serious attempt to discuss emotions and the emotion of choice is anger. She ties it in with forgiving those with whom you're angry and ends the chapter with what it would mean to be a powerful woman.

Chapter 14 is about pain, "Life is Hard, then You Die." She offers tips on dealing with pain.

Chapter 15 is about "Men Use Sex the Way Women Use Food." It's about women's fear of being thin and having to deal with the issues of being feminine.

Chapter 16 is titled "Compulsions." Maybe I read it too fast but I didn't get that it had much to do with compulsions.
'Whoops I goofed, there's a chapter 17 which is one page about affirming that there's an end to self flagellation and put-downs.

Maybe I read the book too fast and missed its genius as I found it to miss the mark. It's as though she picked topics at random and tried to weave it into her "breaking free" program. What do you think?
