At this point in my life I am struggling to keep my weight high enough to stay out of hospital. This book made the risks I am running clear to me as well as providing me with helpful ideas about how to conquer this awful illness. I am a long way from recovery but this book has definitely made a huge impression on me and is the only one I have read that has helped.

This great book (and I have read many) is a clearly written, practical guide for sufferers and their families. Unlike some, the focus here is more on the signs that anorexia is affecting someone and the practical steps one can take to recover from it rather than an over-emphasis on the deep psychological causes. THE Anorexia bible. I wouldn't be without it.

Having read many books on this topic, this one is by far the best. Not just great for those who have anorexia, but for the families and friends too. Simple, yet logical. Your definitive guide. Worth every penny

Our daughter has just been diagnosed with anorexia and we are struggling to understand the illness and how to deal with it.

This book is very accessible and you come out feeling there are others like you and that there is a hope of recovery. Easy to read and helpfully addresses your fears.

A practical guide for parents and an easy one to pass to my daughter in hope.

I would recommend this to anyone trying to cope with a family member with an eating disorder.
It helped me to better, understand the behaviours of family in trying to cope with a teenager.
In reading this, I was able to understand 'what not to do' and it really did influence a positive outcome

As a relative of someone suffering, this book has been invaluable. I thought I knew about this terrible disease. I did not. I learnt loads and I know it will help the rest of the family and our very dear sufferer too. Thank you.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Absolutely no help at all. Currently going through this horrible nasty terrible disease with a younger family member and trying to find as much help and support as possible. This book was recomended by our doctor but and to be honest at the moment we would take and do anything to help our child. It was no help at all talking about ow to talk to them what not to say and to be careful not to say the wrong thing well let me tell you until you have lived with this day in and day out watching a loved one basically killing themselves through starvation you do not understand this horrible disease which starves their brains and they become possessed. How does someone with no training and therapy as a psychologist deal with this situation you can only be a vying supportive parent who needs basic help .
