    You know, I'm all in favour about people speaking out about eating disorders. More knowledge can hopefully lead to better prevention and better understanding and all that, and a lot of the books about eating disorders that are out there now are either really truly mediocre books or they focus on the wrong things.This book falls in the former category.Reading this book, I came to the conclusion that the authors, while writing The Harder They Fall (which I have not read), came across a celebrity or two with an eating disorder as well as an addiction and said "Hey! Another book deal!"Frankly, I think this book is lazy and sycophantic. Maybe if they had spent less time coming up with fawning introductions and descriptions, they could have put some time into doing more in-depth research and interviews (that bit with the Barbi twins, in particular, was excruciating).Some of the stories in here are genuinely interesting, and some of them are actually written fairly well, but it's really not something that I'd recommend. There's much better stuff out there.
