This book grew out of a cover story for People magazine that I reported as a staff correspondent there. A series of interviews with Dr. Marcia Herrin, the founder and head of the Dartmouth College eating disorders program, resulted in this book and our longstanding collaboration. Having reported on and blogged about eating disorders and body image for as long as I have now, I have immense sympathy for the kids, young adults, women and men who struggle with this insidious mental disease. They and their families are too often unjustly blamed for a condition as genetically and biologically based as diabetes or schizophrenia. They can, however, take hope in advances in the field that herald more effective treatments.
