Few psychiatric conditions are more debilitating than anorexia and bulimia, which together afflict some 8 million women and men - and kill many of their victims. No disorders have proven more baffling to the medical community. This electrifying book, whose author attracted worldwide attention when her theories were featured on "20/20," "Pamela Wallin Live," and "Oprah," exposes the inner logic of eating disorders and outlines a radical new approach to their successful, permanent treatment. Powerful, candid and bracing in its common sense, The Secret Language of Eating Disorders offers hope to the families of the afflicted. --- from the publisher
