Praise for Shades of Hope
"Tennie's book provides a way out for those who live the hell of having food as their master. There have been thousands of books written on the subject, which tells us that no one has gotten it right yet. It seems Tennie has. Her model represents a practical, 'no-nonsense, ' loving, and, very importantly, experiential approach....This book gives the reader everything they would need to be successful."--Ted Klontz, Ph.D.
"This book will touch on you and change your life. Whether struggling with stuff like food, relationships, shopping, or bottom-basement self-esteem, Tennie shows you how to interrupt the blame, shame and guilt to find your inner good-good self, whatever that may be. The only question now is: Are you ready for her? I hope so. Here's to that hope...in every shade you find it!"--Brad Lamm, Addictions Specialist
"Tennie has given a miraculous gift to us all, she has brought Shades of Hope to us. It is my prayer and my wish that everyone out there dealing with obesity, eating disorders, any kind of addiction will open this book and begin their healing...."--Ruby Gettinger, star of The Style Network's Emmy-Nominated hit reality TV show Ruby, and producer; author of Reflections on All I've Lost and Gained
