5.0 out of 5 stars the most open-eyed, accurate perspective i've found yet., 3 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Regarding the horrendous disease of contradiction at the root of eating disorders, there are still, sadly, very few resources out there that are not woefully incomplete or simply on the wrong track. However, if this one book, Hunger Strike, is an example of what may begin to reeducate our culture about this disease, then we're in good hands. My credentials? Nine years as a severe anoretic, three long years learning how to eat, three long years healing from the foundation of the disease itself. Also an academic emphasis in this area. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone with any interest in this issue, but most especially to the following. First, professionals working with eating disordered patients; if you don't understand the basic premises which this book presents, you don't know what you're dealing with. Second, academics doing research on eating disorders; much of this book has a strongly sociological focus, and, well, the woman just knows what she's talking about. Third, to anyone suffering from this incredible disease who wants to be able to articulate what she is experiencing but cannot find the words to do it justice, this book is a crucial read.
