Speed Shrinking - Susan Shapiro (2009)

Julia Goodman is the author of two self-help books, the first chronicling her drug and alcohol reliance, the soon-to-be-released second is about her food addiction. Julia thinks she has her addictive personality under control and is revving up for her book tour when her shrink moves to Arizona, her husband has to take off for a job in LA and her best friend gets married and moves to Ohio. Filling the void and feelings of abandonment, Julia starts overeating and rapidly gaining weight. About to go on national television to plug her book on kicking her sugar addiction, Julia needs to lose weight quickly. She seeks out eight shrinks for an eight-day speed-date marathon to find a replacement doctor who can get her addictions under control. This is very funny and hard to put down - addictive even. (AV)
