'This book is an impressive example of the welcome move to an evidence-based biopsychosocial model of anorexia nervosa. By using state-of-the-art research combined with empathy and creativity, this personalised intervention will update the previous transdiagnostic approach. The authors are outstanding clinicians and neuroscientists who are passionate about sharing their knowledge not just with their peers but with those with lived experience through inventive exercises and meticulous information and skill sharing. The result is a targeted treatment that shows great promise. I can recommend this book not just for the wide range of clinicians involved within the field but also as a source book for families who might encounter this problem.'

'Leave it to Laura Hill and her group (with inspiration from Walter Kaye) to come up with an approach to treating and supporting people with Anorexia Nervosa that is evidence informed, integrative, comprehensive, clinically relevant and, all the while, guided by “outside of the box” thinking. Every clinician worth his/her/their salt working with people affected by Anorexia Nervosa, if they seek to expand their therapeutic horizons, had better pay attention to this innovative treatment manual.'

'Recovery from Anorexia Nervosa is elusive for far too many individuals who have been afflicted by this serious eating disorder. The authors have integrated decades of clinical and research experience into a novel treatment approach. This clear and comprehensive manual describes how to work with (rather than against) the temperamental features that may have led to the development of the eating disorder or impede efforts toward positive change. It offers new hope to people with anorexia nervosa and those committed to support them in their journey toward recovery. The book also provides a valuable resource for researchers seeking to advance evidence-based treatment for eating disorders.'
