This book saved my life., September 30, 1999
Reviewer: A reader

It IS a tragedy that this book went out of print. I was suffering from bulimia before it was a commonly known disorder. It helped me to understand it and deal with it. I loaned it and lost it. I know so many young girls, now 20 years later, that could benefit from it.

A tragedy that Squire's book is out of print., August 1, 1997
Reviewer: A reader

This nearly-lost book is a winner when it describes the weight-loss/weight-gain seesaw. As a therapist I frequently loan my single, tattered copy to clients who insist that restricting their intake to starvation levels is "the only way."
This is a "readable book." Squire doesn't try to cover every aspect about eating disorders. The only disappointment is its out-of-print status and the fact that it has not been updated since 1983
