    Read this book!!

    There are very few books available about Males with eating disorders. This is the first book that has dealt with the fact that having an eating disorder can really screw up your life. This book is very well written and is unique about the fact that it really deals with other addictions that go along with eating disorders such as sex addiction. This is the first book I have ever read that has really dealt with the fact that people who have eating disorders can be very manipulative. Dennis writes about what he did and did not give excuses. When I was reading this book I literally could not put it down. I could not wait to see how it ended up. It was not one rapid happy ending but with a lot of work Dennis was able to recover and ultimately treat others. This was a fantastic book that I highly recommend.
