This book deals too much with the cliches of anorexia to be of much interest. Of the case studies presented, only one male example was provided. In his case he had stopped eating due to a digestive disturbance he had been suffering from, & not any conscious desire to stop eating. The other case studies fell under the perfectionists, &/or incest victims.
