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.

This is a fantastic book which I highily recommend.It just approaches eating disorders in a pratical easy manner. This means is it easily understood and enlighting for people who have eating disorders, their friends/ familys and proffessionals. It not only deals with the pratical advicebut helps aleviate that gripping fear that having an eating disorder that some suffers can have.
It covers -
what are eating disorders,
the different types and symptomns
Pitfalls of eating disorders and the recovery process
How to get help
Planning a recovery route
About food and eating
Advice for families and friends

It also has pratical tips and small tasks to let people see how an eating disorder is affecting them and to face the fear of recovery.I have tired a few of these with people and can see how they really help.
I have read several books about eating disorders and they can be really heavy and overwhelming. However this one is a short, easy book that I have loaned to several people who love it too.
Eating disorders are highily complicated subject and it shows how good a book is that it makes a complicated subject so easily understood and offers hope.

...I was still in a lot of denial about the way that anorexia was starting to take control of my life.This book really helped me in the beginning to recognise and understand what was happening to me and most importantly how much I needed to ask for help if I was going to be able to begin and sustiain the journey towards recovery.I would really encourage anyone who thinks that either they themselves or a close friend or relative is having any difficulty around their relationship to food.Even if you still feel you are only at a very early stage,things can snowball very quickly,don't wait until things get much worse,which if you don't change course they most certainly will.I wish you well in this difficult journey,whoever you are and however you feel right now,you are worth the effort.

This book is a comprehensive and sympathetic guide, exploring the whole area of the possible repurcussions of ongoing anxiety. It is undoubtedly essential reading for sufferers and any concerned carer, due the friendly and balanced approach to healing the mind and the body simultaneously. This book is refreshing reading on the subject for male and female alike and will offer any reader overwhelming assurance that the sufferer CAN recover. Thank you Dr Middleton!!!

I bought this book, and some others, for a loved one now considering getting better. The others I had to return - one in particular called itself a recovery book but majored on the person's experiences in such a way that even my loved one said that if they read it they would probably sink deeper into the illness. Dr Kate Middleton's book is written out of genuine care and concern and addresses the reader throughout in a loving and supportive manner. This has to be the only 'manual' you would want with you during the recovery process as it feels like having a friend talking to you. It is excellent. Please, if you are looking for a book to give to the person who is ill then buy this one. If you are looking for a book for carers then the only one to buy has to be Lynn Crilly's as she has the same encouraging manner.

What a great book!
For those of us who understand little about this complex issue but want to support and encourage others with an eating disorder this is a great book. Dr Middleton approaches the subject with compassion developed through a deep understanding of the subject and genuine care.
This book helps to dispel some of the myths and misinformation surrounding this subject and allows those of us on the outside to begin to know how to help and what to say.It removes the mystique surrounding eating disorders and places them into a wider framework that allows supporters and carers to focus on the sufferer and not on the food.

From the point of view of someone who experienced and is not completely recovered from an eating disorder I would not recommend this book to those who need initial support to overcome the problem or to its relatives. It is more like a brief presentation of what eating disorders are rather than a tool to start "the path to recovery". Still, it might be useful for those who are only interested in gaining some basic insight into the topic.
