Anorexia nervosa, known as the "slimmer's disease", is a condition that predominantly affects young women. Although its causes are unclear, the tendency towards obsessive dieting may often have its roots in emotional traumas or family problems. Parents and siblings may be drawn into a confusing situation of not fully understanding what is going on. This book reviews current thinking on the subject and provides accessible sympathetic guidance for anorexics, their families and helpers, both professional and otherwise.
