STUDIO CITY ( — Lawyer and Activist, Brian Cuban, visited the KCAL9 studios Friday to discuss his new book, “Shattered Image”.

The book share’s Cuban’s decades-long struggle with body image, addiction and eating disorders and how to overcome these feats.

Through a series of anecdotes, Cuban illustrates the ongoing nightmare of Body Dysmorphic Disorder that has permeated his thoughts since he was young – taking the reader through the painful realities of childhood bullying and rejection during adolescence to the behaviors that slowly developed as a young adult and nearly killed him later in life, despite career highs.

In his book, he addresses the following:

  • The “down and dirty” of BDD – rituals and obsessive-compulsive  “tics” that preoccupied Cuban’s mind daily and are common to sufferers of the disease
  • The destructive side of  BDD – addiction, eating disorders, depression and suicidal thoughts
  • The steps Cuban took to crawl out of the abyss of BDD, all of which changed obsessive and destructive thought processes through acceptance and  repetition of positive behaviors
