**Surviving and thriving**

As an eating-disorder therapist, I’m always on the lookout for resources to help families, partners, and friends better understand the complex world of eating disorders. I felt like I struck gold when I discovered this book, and it’s now on the top of my recommended reading list.

Perhaps the most controversial tome in my personal library, this book will make any person who has been teased about their weight or even thought to be a person with an eating disorder very uncomfortable in reading it, as it's almost as if it could be a tool to self-diagnose.

However, it is a useful tool, at least it was for me, in using it as a reference in a paper I was writing for my college sociology class.
