The Slender Balance: Causes and Cures for Bulimia, Anorexia and the Weight-Gain/Weight-Loss Seesaw
If the author had prevailed over the marketing department, this book would have been called The Diet Disease. It was published before the subject of eating disorders (and their connection to crash dieting, a possible precursor as well as symptom) really came out of the pop-culture closet, way back in 1983. That makes the research anything but current, but the personal stories told here are timeless-- and The Slender Balance still has its diehard fans many years later. "It is a tragedy that this book went out of print,"comments one of them, adding, "I know so many young girls [who] could benefit from it."
