I don't understand why this book was given one star.  As someone who has suffered from Anorexia Nervosa, I could really relate to what the writers said.  I feel like they really understood (which is rare since so many people misunderstand eating disorders in general).  Also, I was previously a client Dr. Paulson and he is wonderful.
