The Adonis Complex [ePub]

by Harrison G. Pope Jr.

A Health Crisis that Affects Men of All Ages

Trying everything from compulsive weight lifting to steroids, more and more boys and men are taking the quest for physical perfection beyond the bounds of normal behavior. The Adonis Complex — the groundbreaking book that first gave a name to this phenomenon and sparked nationwide interest in the subject — identifies for the first time the symptoms and warning signs of this dangerous problem, including:
– An obsession with exercise, sometimes to the exclusion of all other activities
– Binge eating, anorexia nervosa, and bulimia
– The abuse of steroids, muscle-building supplements, and diet aids

But perhaps more important, it offers readers an explanation of the underlying causes of the Adonis complex, together with hands-on advice for those who have experienced body obsessions themselves, or who see these problems in a boy or man they love.
