This is a very short book but definitely worth a read. I found it very informative about the psychological disease of anorexia and the author expresses her experiences very clearly. I particularly liked the way the mind games, the compulsions and obsessions with foods, weight control, calorie counting and exercising were detailed and also how her illness affected her family. Also, to note, is the way the problem was overcome by focusing on more important issues in her life.
It is very well written and I would recommend it to anyone, whether or not they have or know someone with anorexia and I would imagine that it would be of benefit to those trying to overcome similar obsessions.
