Overview

The classic book that offers understanding and a positive approach.Sherman and Thompson answer the questions asked most frequently by the families and friAnds of bulimics. Why do some women become bulimic? What are the medical risks? The authors—both experts on the causes and treatment of eating disorders—have created the first authoritative step-by-step guide to this complex disease. They reveal bulimia's insidious nature including the fact that those who care the most about helping can actually make things worse. Filled with practical information and advice, this essential resource offers hope to millions of bulimics and their loved ones.
