First published more than twenty years ago, with almost 150,000 copies sold, The Golden Cage is still the classic book on anorexia nervosa, for patients, parents, mental health trainees, and senior therapists alike.
Writing in direct, jargon-free style, often quoting her patients's descriptions of their own experience of illness and recovery, Bruch described the relentless pursuit of thinness and the search for superiority in self-denial that characterize anorexia nervosa. She emphasized the importance of early diagnosis and offered guidance on danger signs.

Little-known when this ground-breaking book was first published, eating disorders are now all too familiar. More than five million Americans suffer from eating disorders, according to the National Institute of Mental Health, and an estimated 1,000 women die each year from anorexia nervosa. Sympathetic and astute, The Golden Cage now speaks to a new generation.
