Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia Timbrook
Do you know a teen who displays pre-anorexic and/or pre-bulimic signs? How about a teen who is completely controlled by an eating disorder and needs help? This revised and updated, clinically written handbook, full of hands-on activities, may be the catalyst for helping your young person onto the path of wellness and control. While written to assist individuals with anorectic and bulimic lifestyles, the book emphasizes the need for seeking qualified, professional counselors during the entire process of healing.
School Library Journal
Gr 7-12 It is increasingly common for young people, especially females, to turn today's ``thin/trim is in'' ethos into serious eating disorders. Kolodny ad dresses the problem with adeptness and understanding. She discusses self-es teem and explores habit formation (good and bad) with its possible exten sion to compulsion or obsession. Writ ing in the second person, Kolodny ad dresses her readers directly: explaining, questioning, suggesting, and encouraging. Teen-related analo gies, plausible scenarios, and actual quotes from anorexics and bulimics add variety to the attractive format. Several exercises and tests help readers deter mine tendencies toward eating disor ders (unfortunately, some may tempt readers to write in the book). Anorexia nervosa and bulimia are defined accu rately in straightforward terms, from possible triggers of their development to their emotional, social, and physical results. The second half of the book is aimed more explicitly at those who are victims of an eating disorder or who want to help a victim. Here Kolodny's serious but upbeat personal approach is a major plus. As an encouraging coach would, she offers self-help skills, delin eates the importance of seeking addi tional objective help, and advises would-be helpers. The difficulties of re covery are squarely faced, but optimis tic reassurance undergirds the way. Why Are They Starving Themselves? (Messner, 1983) by Landau is another clear and compassionate treatise on an orexia and bulimia, detailed with case histories, but not developing the direct side-by-side guidance that Kolodny of fers.
