There are some books that just have to be read, and I would like to suggest that this is one of them. There are so many pre-conceptions about anorexia and eating disorders in general, it is refreshing to find a book that breaks through the myths and really brings us back to reality. Well written, in a style that is honest, clear and concise, this book is for those who want to try and understand.
The content is excellent. Katharine brings us into the book by sharing her own story. She has herself battled with eating disorders throughout her life. Katharine's story is at times painful but the overall message is one of survival, of the good times and the bad, and of how as a survivor she takes one day at a time in what is now a life in recovery. The book continues by looking at a number of case studies, and how various 'solutions' have succeeded or failed in helping others to survive. It concludes with some thoughts and comments on the current approach to helping those with eating disorders.
I would recommend this to a wide range of readers, from those who know someone who is suffering to those who are simply taking an interest. It is not a long book, but it's one that sticks in your mind, one that you'll remember.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Karen La Borde on 17 Nov 2005
Format: Paperback
In Little Steps, Katharine’s mission is to dispel widely held myths and misconceptions about the debilitating and devastating nature of eating disorders.
Some view the disease as the sufferer’s vain method to lose weight, seek attention, or to punish loved ones.
The anorexic is regarded as having no self control and can simply snap out of it.
This insensitivity by members of the public, and even those in the medical field, harm and alienate the sufferer, who is powerless to the invisible force of destruction the disease creates.
Katharine painfully exposes her daily battle with the disorder, knowing that life in recovery is management of the illness.
“There are times when allowing the illness to take over seems so appealing because the fight would be finished”, she said.
With love and support from family and friends, Katharine is finally pursuing her life-long dream of an acting career.

Format: Paperback
Katharine's book is eloquently written and full of pathos. She describes how she lived with a life of anorexia. She describes the fear, torment, horror and frustration. During the book Katharine goes through a personal transformation and the overwhelming message is one of help. Katharine is able to articulate herself and learn from her experience. You can see that the self realisation leads her towards a cure. This is an inspiration to anyone who has been or may be in a similar situation to Katharine in the future. Thank you Katharine for writing your story and thank you too Katharine for helping Chipmunkapublishing to help more people. You are a wonderful giving and loving person and i feel priviledged to have read your book.
