As you can probably tell from the date read, this review is long overdue. I thought that I had posted it onto my blog with the original lot of reviews from Goodreads, but it seems not.

Eating Disorders: The Path to Recovery is an extremely helpful and insightful guide to eating disorders. It covers what they are (focusing on anorexia and bulimia), understanding why someone might have them, some of the emotions and thinking patterns behind it and a step-by-step guide on what recovery is and how it is possible to obtain.

Every sentence is jam-packed with information and practicalities. This book is written not only for those suffering from an eating disorder (or think they are) but is also aimed at parents and even simply curious readers.

Kate Middleton (not the one who recently married into the English royal family) is actually the director of one of the main eating disorder corporations called Anorexia and Bulimia Care (ABC). So, you can rest in the knowledge that this book was not simply written from theory, but from real people’s experiences and practical handling.

All in all, Eating Disorders: The Path to Recovery is a very informative, helpful, jam-packed book for not only sufferers, but for parents and curious readers.

  1. This sort of thing really needs to be talked about! I’m so glad there is a helpful book for it. Too many people have eating disorders and feel completely alone, the more people who know about it and can help the better, I’ll have to have a look at this book!
