My Life as a Male Anorexic is a uniquely male point of view of anorexia nervosa. It is the autobiographical account of a young man's ongoing struggle with anorexia.
Michael Krasnow has had anorexia since 1984, and he chronicles his daily struggles, feelings, and experiences in this book. He writes in a relaxed, easygoing manner that makes the book appealing to all readers. While ignoring statistics and not pretending to be an expert on the disorder, Michael simply tells readers what his life is like and how anorexia has affected - even controlled - it. As of today, Michael has maintained his weight at 75 pounds on a 5-foot, 9-inch frame.
Anyone who suffers from, or anyone who knows someone who suffers from, anorexia will learn that male anorexia is a serious problem and that there needs to be psychogical and medical help for the boys and men who struggle with anorexia.
Michael's story will baffle, frustrate, and sadden readers, whether they are interested in the human side of Michael's story, whether they are workers in the medical field or whether they are teachers, co-workers, friends, or relatives of a male with anorexia. My Life as a Male Anorexic begins to shed light on the little-known or discussed problem of male anorexia nervosa.
