Greta Noordenbos has written a guidebook for the journey of recovery from eating disorder. The road to recovery is often long, arduous, bewildering and frightening. Patients and their families and friends would be well advised to carry and consult this book along the way. Like its author, the book is warm and hopeful in tone whilst being knowledgeable and realistic and above all trustworthy.—Professor Bob Palmer, University of Leicester, UK

Overall I believe this is a wonderful book for both sufferers and their families and it will be very helpful for beating the eating disorder.—Johann Vanderlin, University Psychiatric Center KULeuven, Belgium

Rather than promoting a particular treatment approach, this book takes us on a journey through stages of an eating disorder, using experiences and insights from those who have successfully emerged from the darkness of their disorder. An excellent resource for those perplexed by eating disorders: professionals, patients and loved ones.—Anthea Fursland, Principal Clinical Psychologist, Eating Disorders Programme, Centre for Clinical Interventions (CCI), Australia

This is a remarkable and very valuable book. In the format of an extensive piece of qualitative research, based on many interviews with people with a history of an eating disorder, the author has created an immensely readable account of the genesis, progress and recovery from it. This account is supported by a strongly referenced basis in the research literature. Furthermore the author does not simply describe the process of the eating behaviour, but explores the growth of the person that was missing to begin with and now will be necessary for full recovery. She investigates developing self-esteem, expressing emotions, developing social relationships, providing the template for full recovery, not simply the return to more normal eating patterns. This book is entirely suitable for clients who will certainly recognise themselves in its pages, but is also valuable for clinicians for whom this is as clear an account as you could hope for, of the factors involved in an eating disorder.—Julia Buckroyd, Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of Hertfordshire
