One of the best books on Anorexia out there

by recoverygal (WorldCat user published 2009-03-28) Excellent Permalink

This is one of the best recovery books on anorexia nervosa out there. I highly recommend it. It is filled with knowledge, but easy to read and to understand. I learned so much and wish that more people would understand the truths about this illness.
