Surviving an Eating Disorder became an instant success when it was first published in 1988, not just because it was among the first books to alert America to the serious dangers of a silent but widespread disease, but because it offered effective solutions and support for family and friends of those with eating disorders. Eight years after its publication, the book continues to sell briskly and generate continuing interest from readers.
This new edition has been revised to address the cutting-edge advances made in the field of eating disorders, discuss how the changes in health care have affected treatment and provide additional strategies for dealing with anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder. It also includes updated readings and a list of support organizations. Without a doubt the best book on the subject, it is required reading for those suffering from eating disorders, their families and professionals.

Michele Siegel died in 1993.From Publishers Weekly:
Siegel and Brisman are founders of Bulimia Treatment Associates; Weinshel is on the faculty of the Ackerman Institute for Family Therapy, both facilities in New York City. These psychologists here offer counsel on bulimia, anorexia and/or compulsive overeating. The text concentrates on women who binge and vomit or starve themselves, primarily female aberrations, and discusses gourmands, mostly male. Starting with case histories that posit family experiences as the root of bizarre eating, the authors progress to information on how to recognize symptoms of disorder and how to help the sufferers. Victims must face their illnesses squarely, the first step on the long road to recovery, stress the authors. "Don't go it alone," they add, appending a list of organizations that provide information on professional help.
