Review:

"Fairburn's broad, popular text... provides a concise discussion on related research, information and methods for controlling the behaviour of food bingers. The author has managed to intermix all the key issues throughout the text, thus providing consistent and relevant information." - John Thain, Nursing Standrard, August 2005

"This book is exceptional and can be used as a form of treatment, to bolster treatment, or to teach professionals about those who struggle with binge eating problems. Clearly this book is the culmination of Dr. Fairburn's years of Center for Eating and Weight Disorders" - Denise E. Wifley, Co-Director, Yale Center for Eating and Weight Disorders, USA

Synopsis:

Virtually two books in one, Overcoming Binge Eating provides all the information needed both to understand the problem and bring it under control. Dispelling many of the myths associated with binge eating, Part One provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of current knowledge about binge eating problems. Chapters address such issues as: * who binges and why? * how binge eating differs from everyday overeating * whether binge eating is an addiction * how binge eating affects people emotionally and physically * the ways those who binge can gain control. Part Two of the book is a new self-help program based on the most effective strategies for binge eating problems. Designed to be used on its own or in conjunction with therapy, the program provides step-by-step guidance for: * overcoming the urge to binge * gaining control of eating behavior * reducing the risk of relapse * establishing stable, healthy eating habits. Comprehensive, accessible, and eminently practical, this important new book offers advice, encouragement, and detailed guidance for anyone who suffers from binge eating problems.

It also provides the latest information for those wanting to learn about these problems.
