Anorexia and Bulimia by Carol Sonenklar-ADVISABLE

Anorexia and Bulimia (USA Today Health Reports: Diseases and Disorders)Sonenklar, Carol, Anorexia and Bulimia. Twenty-First Century Books, 2011. INFORMATION.

In the United States, as many as 11 million people suffer from eating disorders. With the warped image so many teenagers see as beautiful and extremely thin on tv and how easy it is to become Anorexic or Bulimic, it is becoming harder and harder for some to have healthy relationships with food. This book takes a look at this health issue.

The layout is well-done. The text is informative, well-researched, and objective. The integration of primary and secondary sources is wonderful. The photos and illustrations complement the text well. Readers who are researching health issues, interested in non-fiction, or learning about the topic will enjoy reading this book and find it helpful and informative. MS. ADVISABLE.
