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)
