"This book fills a gap in the books available on eating disorders in that it addresses a wide range of potential eating disorders in young people... This is a reassuring book without negating the seriousness of an eating disorder and is written as though sharing knowledge with equal partners in the process of helping a child" - Signpost, March 2005
