'To say that this book is timely is to make an understatement. It is overdue. Paul Robinson has done the field of eating disorders – patients, carers and professionals – a major service by tackling head-on important and damaging myths about eating disorders.

'In this short book, he sets out the case against the trivialisation and relative neglect of eating disorders in general and builds the case that in particular a substantial number of people, mainly with chronic Anorexia Nervosa, have disorders that are, by any rational standard, both severe and enduring. The book describes the problems of such people and how they may be approached and at least ameliorated. It is sensible, lively, useful and thought-provoking. All clinicians involved with eating disorders should read it.
--Professor Bob Palmer, Psychiatry, University of Leicester

"In an era of therapeutic optimism and belief in the healing powers of brief psychological therapies, the plight of people with severe and enduring eating disorders remains a neglected topic. Drawing on parallels and differences to other severe mental disorders, this unique book provides a sound and practical framework for working with these patients. Thoughtful, compassionate, easy-to-read, and imbued with the author's considerable clinical wisdom and research knowledge, this book fills an important gap."
--Professor Ulrike H. Schmidt, Professor of Eating Disorders, Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London

‘Paul Robinson continues to address the largely unmet needs of individuals with severe and chronic eating disorders. His description of Severe and Enduring Eating Disorders is clinically compelling and should be familiar to most clinicians working in the area. His approach is broad based, comprehensive, and pluralistic in terms of theoretical perspective. Moreover, the book is full of practical information regarding patients’, families’, and clinicians’ needs. It is a significant contribution regarding this group of patients with tremendous treatment needs.’
-- Dr Stephen Wonderlich, Associate Chairperson and Professor, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences and Director of Clinical Research, Neuropsychiatric Research Institute
