"Fairburn's broad, popular text... provides a concise discussion on related research, information and methods for controlling the behaviour of food bingers. The author has managed to intermix all the key issues throughout the text, thus providing consistent and relevant information." - John Thain, Nursing Standrard, August 2005

"This book is exceptional and can be used as a form of treatment, to bolster treatment, or to teach professionals about those who struggle with binge eating problems.
