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.
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.
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.
