Reviewed by CBC Reviewer

This timely book examines the myths and facts of eating disorders, which are often of great concern in middle and secondary school populations. The book's comprehensive approach, covering the social, psychological, and emotional aspects of such problems, earned it a designation as an NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2009.

This book is not only important for students (who may find valuable health information for themselves or to share with family and friends) but will also be important to teachers, counselors, and other school staff. Its appendices, author’s notes, glossary, and bibliography will help concerned readers investigate further.
