Eating disorders ISBN: 9780431098067
Warbrick, Caroline
Published by Heinemann (Need to Know series), 2003
Aimed at teenagers, this book covers the facts about Anorexia, Bulimia and Compulsive Eating Disorder. Sections on who gets these disorders, the social pressures and emotions of adolescence, warning signs, treatments, and helping yourself are covered in some detail, albeit with a certain amount of repetition. There are a number of contacts given in both the UK and Australia, and a list of further (quite sophisticated) reading. One of a series of factual books by Heinemann. Colour illustrations and personal stories add to the interest.
