This book was EXCELLENT!! This was by far theeeee best book that I've ever read that was helpful to me. I had a problem many years ago and this book was like a "Bible" to me. It helped me immensely to understand the whole emotional process and the idea that its not really the "food" but what's behind the "eating" or "lack of eating". It is a great and helpful book for someone struggling with any kind of eating disorder. I also recommend it for any parents who have a child with an eating disorder ...more

I read this to help me better understand how best to help other people, and to let other people help me. Most of the advice was for parents/children, which was not applicable. Some of it was about dealing with adult relationships, friendships, romantic partners, roommates, co-workers, and that part was helpful. I will be rereading it, and sharing some of the applicable bits with the applicable people in my life.
