Brian Cuban, the brother of Mavericks' owner and Shark Tank star Mark Cuban, has written a book about addiction, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, and bullying.

This is a particularly important book on subjects that affect many children during their formative years. In an exclusive interview, Brian spoke of how bullying had shaped his self-esteem which in turn led to an eating disorder.

The effect of eating disorders among males is often ignored, the book shines a light on an issue that is too often minimized.

Most profound is the way the book deals with bullying. Brian indicated that in the book he details several stories of how bullying effected his not only his self-confidence, but led to his desire to change his appearance which was so intense, he did not eat, and over-exercised.

The book can be preordered on Amazon.com.
