There were a few significant weaknesses in the book itself that prevent me from giving it 5 stars, however. For one thing, there are a number of confusing and contradictory points in the book. He is also inclined to present his opinions as fact with little evidence. For example, the author argues pretty strenuously that there are no such things as "toxic" or "trigger" foods, and yet he encourages people to avoid buying foods that they tend to binge on early in their recovery. Which is it - are these foods triggers that we should avoid buying entirely or are they "safe" foods that we shouldn't avoid? Also, at various points he seems to suggest that people can be permanently "cured" of eating disorders, but towards the end of the book he admits that you might not be so permanently cured after all (which was actually pretty demoralizing).
Didn't think I'd say this but he is also, in my opinion, perhaps a little unfairly dismissive of 12-step programs. (Disclaimer: I tried OA and quit because it made me worse. However, AA did, in fact, help me - although I freely acknowledge that, for most people, AA doesn't provide an answer for their problems and that there are actually more effective solutions out there). He spends several pages criticizing them for being unscientific and unproven; I agree, but there may still be a smallish subset of the population that is helped by them, which should be investigated (especially if it provides an inexpensive alternative or adjunct to therapy for people who otherwise would be unable or unwilling to participate in more conventional care for whatever reason). (For AA at least, that seems to hover at around 5 - 10% of first-time participants; not sure what it is for OA and other similar 12-step programs).
He also criticizes the idea that eating disorders are an addiction and lists several major differences between eating disorders and "classic" substance dependence; for example, eating disorders are egodystonic and "classic" addictions are egosyntonic. I think that this is generally true, but is it always true? I'm not sure that he completely proves that. I agree completely with his conclusions but his arguments here probably could've been a bit better supported in places.
He does bring up some good points though. For example, I agree that proponents of the addiction model generally downplay the differences between substance dependence and binge eating. He also argues (pretty successfully, in my opinion) that no one's been able to prove a specific relationship between binge eating and other addictions; for example, are binge eaters more likely to be alcoholics than, say, depressed people? So far no one has been able to conclusively prove that that's true. In fact, it's not entirely clear that binge eaters have an elevated rate of addiction at all. Granted, people in treatment programs might be more likely than the general population to have multiple additions, but that is probably skewed by the self-selection bias; people with multiple issues are probably more likely to present for treatment.
Overall, in spite of the weaknesses, this is a good book introducing a reasonable self-help program for those suffering from binge eating disorder or bulimia.
