"I am a child psychologist who has been in practice for over 30 years. A common behavior I frequently see with children is nail-biting. The consequences to the child can range from hearing "stop biting your nails" for hundreds of times, to more serious medical issues and structural damage. Nail-biting into the teenage years and adulthood can result in the development of shame and low self-esteem. A very simple behavior can evolve into a serious condition that requires much thought and work to undo. After reading "Truth About Nail-Biting," I have been able to add perspective and techniques in helping children and their parents to address this problem with significant success. I value Audrey’s years of researching the literature and sharing her own experience and struggles in attempts to get this behavior under control. I really appreciate her supportive, creative, positive, practical and self forgiving approach. The writing style lets me feel as if I am having a conversation with the author while sitting at her kitchen table, and that I would be invited back whenever I asked. I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling with the challenge of nail-biting, be it with yourself or with someone you love." Gordon V. White, Ph.D.
