The Art of Wasting Away

By: Maite Tello

About the Book

A lot of messed up things happen to us

And if you think about it

There are 8 billion different versions of today

This book is just one of them

The raw and honest truth of

What living is

What struggling is

And everything inbetween

All compressed into a short book full of


Long words

The exploitation of the things that eat us alive

And absolutely no rhyming because this isn’t Dr. Seuss

    The Art of Wasting Away

    This book was breathtaking. Every page was relateable. If you’ve struggled with anxiety, depression, or an eating disorder, this book will put what you’re thinking into words for you. If you don’t struggle with one of those things, you know someone who does, this book will tell you what they go through every day. Buy yourself a copy, and buy one for them. You won’t regret it.
