First published more than twenty years ago, with almost 150,000 copies sold, The Golden Cage is still the classic book on anorexia nervosa, for patients, parents, mental health trainees, and senior therapists alike. Writing in direct, jargon-free style, often quoting her patients’ descriptions of their own experience of illness and recovery, Bruch describes the relentless pursuit of thinness and the search for superiority in self-denial that characterizes anorexia nervosa. She emphasizes the importance of early diagnosis and offers guidance on danger signs. Little-known when this groundbreaking book was first published, eating disorders have become all too familiar. Sympathetic and astute, The Golden Cage now speaks to a new generation.

MEDIA REVIEWS

An extraordinary achievement… Bruch wrote with clarity, insight and compassion of her cases during the anorexia outbreak of the early ’70s, an epidemic that seemed to arise out of nowhere, with no official diagnosis. - Holly Brubach, New York Times Style Magazine

The Golden Cage is eminently readable and generously spiced with vivid illustrations from Bruch’s own clinical case material. Her discussion of and generalization from this material are wonderfully astute. - Contemporary Psychology

The story of the disorder itself is beautifully written, presented with a deftness, lightness, and accuracy that make the reader yearn to turn the page, to watch the unfolding of this very enigmatic disorder. This is the single most important professionally written book for laypersons and parents. - Shervert H. Frazier, M.D., McLean Hospital
