Explores in both a sophisticated and accessible way the inner experience of patients with eating disorders. The book details the maturation of the psychoanalytic perspective on these conditions as well as the variety of current points of view, as well as the author's thoughtful and convincing Kleinian perspective.

Interesting use of intermediate and transitional objects to explain how the mother-daughter relationship can go wrong and its effects on the child forever needing to seperate themselves and yet at the same time not acknowledge any seperation. The case studies show vividly the difficulties in treating this type of client and the contributions of Winnicotts theory to compliment the Kleinian perspective.
