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, The 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
