Shelves: academic, non-fiction
I read this book while doing research for a paper and I was in awe. In the course of researching a paper, you come across a lot of texts, some of which are helpful and some of which are not. Gordon's writing is not only engaging but the information is substantial and clear. Gordon makes a good case around 'ethnic disorders' and discusses eating disorders candidly yet carefully.

This text could well be triggering for some people and I would not recommend it if you believe that you may be triggered
