Joan M. Johnston (au). Traces the authorís relentless pursuit of thinness & the progression of her disease over 14 years: weight loss, bizarre nutritional habits, deteriorating health, & a failed marriage. An early lack of self-confidence & a drive for perfection helped fuel her obsession with losing weight, she says, which gave her a false sense of security & control. Examines the differences & similarities between bulimia, compulsive overeating, & anorexia, & challenges the traditional medical models that reject eating disorders as addictions. Draws parallels between alcohol addiction & anorexia & makes a compelling argument for a separate Anorexics Anonymous as the only avenue to recovery.
