This is more than a book written by practitioners for practitioners. It is a book written for people who are up close with eating disorders, be they helpers, family or in recovery. Having acknowledged this, I have nothing but more praise for it. I have almost 30 years working alongside people who have eating disorders and can honestly say that I could have done with this book for everyone of them. It is straight forward, logical and a great tool for getting thoughts in place, motivation bolstered and resolve revived.

The 8 keys take the user through steps which include the simplest of things such as hope, feelings, challenging thoughts, behaviours and finding meaning
