"...clear and concise...broad in scope...belong[s] in any library serving young adults."—School Library Journal

According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Related Disorders, the National Eating Disorders Association, and the National Institute of Mental Health, between 5 and 10 million Americans suffer from eating disorders. Most are female although an estimated 5 to 10 percent of people with anorexia or bulimia, as well as 35 percent of those with binge-eating disorders, are male.

The Truth About Eating Disorders, Second Edition is an updated A-to-Z guide that addresses everything from the lifelong effects of anorexia to the pressures and stresses that often lead to one or more of these disorders.
