This book just blew me away. As someone who has dipped into this type of book before, I was expecting an understanding of the issues and some helpful information. What I never expected was the breadth of insight and the fantastically engaging style of writing. It seems highly unlikely with such a subject, but it really is an enjoyable and compelling read.
Dr Kate Middleton writes as if she is talking directly to every one of her readers - never condescending or jargony, always friendly, realistic and practical. At the same time it's clear she writes with immense authority on the subject. She inspires a much needed confidence and positivity in an area typically so dark and secret; she generates a certainty that anyone suffering from an eating disorder is not alone, and that real recovery is truly possible.
I completely recommend this book to anyone; male or female; sufferer or concerned onlooker; those with a professional interest, and those who are simply interested. It's like a breath of fresh air on the subject and it will transform the way you see things.
