About this title


Explores the history of anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating, discussing their symptoms, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment

From Booklist:

Gr. 7^-12. Three common eating disorders--anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating--are explored in this title in the Diseases and People series. In a straightforward, easy-to-follow account, Robbins gives the history of the disorders, their symptoms, possible causes, prevention, and treatment. True stories of young people who have experienced the disorders help readers better understand how they can occur and their often devastating results. Photos serve mainly to break up the text, though there is one fairly shocking photo of the effects of binge-purging on a young woman's teeth. The text is somewhat imbalanced; more space is given to treatments of bulimia than anorexia or binge eating, and although it states it will address obesity, a result of binge eating, only a few paragraphs are included on the topic. The book is more a beginning research tool than a self-help resource, but it does offer some sensible suggestions for prevention, for both educators and youth, as well as a list of related organizations. Glossary; reading list; chapter notes. Shelle Rosenfeld
