Format: Paperback
As a family physician, mother, and Girl Scout leader, I am always
excited to find new tools to help our youth. 100 Questions & Answers
about Anorexia Nervosa fits the bill in all categories. Dr.
Shepphird's book is a practical, informative, accurate and thorough
resource appropriate not only for medical providers, but for patients,
family members and friends of anyone suffering from anorexia.

From the obvious but important first question, "What IS anorexia
nervosa?" to the deeper probing "My daughter recently said she just
wants to lose 'a little weight' in order to feel better about herself.
Should I be concerned?" these hundred questions tackle virtually every
aspect of an overwhelmingly prevalent disease.

Dr. Shepphird organized her book in a logical progression from an
overview, warning signs, risk factors, to exercise and body image
considerations, to treatment, recovery and advocacy. The sections are
labeled along the sides of the pages for speedy access. She includes
clear charts, visual images and screening checklists throughout the
book. Every significant medical term is bold-faced and then pulled out
and defined along the margins, allowing faster reading for clinically
educated reader while at the same time not confounding the lay-reader
with medical jargon.

Perhaps what sets Dr. Shepphird's book apart the most, however, is her
powerful integration of personal comments in every section from two
successful women who have battled anorexia. Lynn was a world-class
athlete whose victories masked her eating disorders until her poor
health ultimately ended her competitive career.

For anyone with a personal, professional, or even academic interest, Dr. Shepphird's "100 Questions and Answers about Anorexia Nervosa" provides a concise, jargon-free reference to the most pertinent questions and issues in the complex world of eating disorders. Based on the latest research as well as current, effective clinical practices, it is destined to become the essential reference for clinicians, patients, and family members. It has already taken this coveted spot in my office since the book's clear information and sensitive treatment make it invaluable as a genuine source of insight and information for those dealing with anorexia nervosa.

Format: Paperback
I've collaborated with eating disorder specialist Sari Shepphird, Ph.D, many times now, and she's always incredibly insightful and inspiring. So is her book, 100 Questions & Answers About Anorexia Nervosa. It's a valuable guide for anyone wanting to learn more about anorexia. Maybe you're trying to recover from this debilitating disorder or have a love one who is. Maybe you're a guidance counselor who'd like to know more, an athletic coach, a primary care physician or a concerned friend. Either way, this book is a great practical resource that's packed with important information. And its author has extensive experience in the eating disorder field as a clinical psychologist - almost 20 years!

There's a lot of confusing, and misleading information out there on eating disorders, but Dr. Shepphird's book provides accurate, up-to-date information, which is laid out in an easy-to-read structure and style. She debunks many pervasive myths throughout. For instance, Dr. Shepphird debunks the myths that anorexia is a choice or just a phase; and that eating will fix everything (it's part of recovery but it's important for sufferers to seek professional help).

She devotes an entire chapter to support for loved ones, with crucial questions like "how can I get through this?" when your child has been diagnosed with anorexia and "what do you hear most often from the parents of anorexia patients regarding their experiences? what can I learn from other parents who are facing the same struggles?" Parents and loved ones reading this book will really get a sense of relief, hope and, again, tons of great insight into anorexia. One of the best things you can do for a loved one is to educate yourself about the disorder, and this book gives readers the opportunity to do that.

Format: Paperback
Having gone through anorexia myself, I have read nearly every book on the subject that I could find over the past 20 years. This book held my interest to the end and I learned aspects about the disorder that I never knew or considered. Dr. Shepphird addresses the key questions about anorexia with a mix of sound, scientific objectivity and real compassion. Here is someone who really understands, and bridges the shame and embarrassment factors so common in eating disorders. These are exactly the questions that would have been of most help to me when I was struggling in the disease. This book provides understanding and hope to those who suffer, as well as guidance, direction, and resources for recovery.

Here are some of the editorial reviews from the front cover:

"100 Questions and answers about Anorexia Nervosa is full of good information. It is practical and easy to read and it answers many of the most frequently asked questions in an easy to understand, non-judgemental, and straightforward way. It should be on the bookshelf of every high school and public library in the counry; it should be made available to all clinicians, educators and community members who work with youth. Parents and loved ones should be given a copy when they are just beginning the journey into recovery from anorexia. Thank you Dr Shepphird!
