About Gürze Books

Gürze was started when Leigh and Lindsey wrote their first book, Bulimia: A Guide to Recovery, which includes Lindsey's personal story of recovery, questions and answers, and suggestions from hundreds of others who have recovered from bulimia. It is the first book written solely about bulimia and has sold over 130,000 copies now in its fifth edition.

Since that time, Gürze Books has continued to offer high quality materials on understanding and overcoming eating disorders of all kinds.

What does Gürze mean? Gürze is a woman who came to Lindsey in a dream in 1976 when she was fighting a nine-year battle with bulimia. Waking up in the middle of the night, Lindsey wrote down the name, complete with the unusual "ü" and a quick sketch of the woman's appearance on the notepad she kept by her bed. Gürze's loveable face and long legs inspired Lindsey to make a life-sized doll, which was the beginning of a nationwide soft-sculpture business and an integral part of Lindsey's recovery. In a six-year period, over half a million hand-made dolls were sold!
