Some have full-blown conditions such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating, compulsive exercising or bigorexia. Others are distressed by slightly lesser degrees of disordered eating or over-exercise and seek ways of overcoming their problems.

The Invisible Man applies the latest research to produce a practical, problem-focused self-help manual for men with eating disorders and body image problems. Divided into four sections, this evidence-based survival kit covers:

MEDIA REVIEWS

"An exceptionally experienced and expert clinician has given us an exceptionally useful book to guide boys and men in understanding and healing eating disorders, compulsive exercise, and uniquely male body image disorders." - Arnold Andersen, Professor of Psychiatry, College of Medicine, University of Iowa, USA

"In 'The Invisible Man', John Morgan makes a powerful case for meeting the particular needs of men affected by eating disorders. It can be difficult for anyone to seek help - but the problem is so much greater for young men who develop what many people mistakenly consider is a female problem. Morgan combines theory and practical help in a highly readable style." - Susan Ringwood, Chief Executive Officer of BEAT

"The book has many excellent attributes - none more so than the chapter on healthy habits, providing clinicians with some excellent tools with which to work. It is written in an informative style, without being overly academic. There is also an excellent resource section with some useful websites. This book will ensure that we can no longer use our lack of knowledge as an excuse for avoiding the problems of male eating disorders. Highly recommended." - Nursing Standard, April 22(34) 2008

"B-EAT the principal UK charity for eating disorders, recommends this book as an important resource for anyone wishing to understand these particular men's issues. I second that recommendation." - Carl Eaton, Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal, January 2009
