They may be dinky in size, but in terms of content Teachers’ Pocketbooks titles tend to deliver the whole package – and this is no exception. What TP books always do so brilliantly is get right to the heart of a topic, cutting out the padding and the waffle, bringing the subject into sharp focus, and conveying the essential information succinctly and with total clarity, which is of course exactly what time-poor pedagogues often need. The issue of eating disorders is a complex and sensitive one, yet Knightsmith has put together an excellent and comprehensive overview, from the initial identification of risk factors and warning signs to practical advice on how best to help suffering students and their families towards recovery. Genuine quotes from pupils and teachers who have experience of eating disorders (as does the author) bring valuable added insight.
