This book explores the pathophysiology, clinical assessment and management of the obese patient in the context of serious chronic disease, as well as the political and environmental aspects, including prevention. The book's approach of arriving at an exploration of these issues through the vehicle of assessing the controversies is unique and interesting, attempting to debunk the myths and explore the genuine science whilst demonstrating areas where healthy debate is rife.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book chronicles the history of obesity and the early theories on its causes, then relates the current thinking about causes, comorbidities, and treatments. The purpose is to foster awareness of past theories, challenge those theories, and move on to current discussions in government and medicine concerning approaches to treating individuals and the epidemic in general. The audience includes everyone with an interest in the subject of obesity, whether they are governmental policy makers, clinicians, or laypersons." (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2014)
