Anorexia and all eating disorders alike affect fundamental relationships between individuals and their bodies. This book portrays the eternal pain of the anorexic mind. Marilyn Lawrence traces the psychological origins of anorexia and discusses the fallacy of the ideal weight, size and shape that some women in anguish may compulsively seek.
