MEDIA REVIEWS
"Wadden and Stunkard have assembled a distinguished set of contributors to provide state-of-the-art coverage of the clinical assessment and treatment of obese patients. The book will be invaluable to practitioners and researchers alike. It offers an unflinching yet balanced examination of what we know and do not know about managing obesity, including important new perspectives on prevention and environmental factors. A critical analysis of the evidence is blended with a constructive and compassionate approach to understanding and helping obese individuals with the full array of problems they experience. Clinicians will find a wealth of practical information and sound advice on how best to treat their patients. I know of no better source of information for anyone involved in the study and treatment of obesity."--G. Terence Wilson, PhD, Chair, Department of Psychology, Rutgers University

"This book brings it all together for anyone interested in understanding the disease of obesity and how to prevent and treat it. The chapters are clear and easy to read, and are written by the top experts in the field. This is a 'must-have' book for researchers and clinicians, and a great textbook for courses on weight management."--James O. Hill, PhD, Director, Center for Human Nutrition, University of Colorado Health Sciences Center

"This outstanding handbook will be useful to students and clinical practitioners alike. Broad in scope, the book covers a range of useful topics in the treatment of childhood and adult obesity. The distinguished team of authors also addresses such foundational areas as obesity prevalence, complications, etiology, and weight loss effects. This is an important book for anyone involved in the evaluation, treatment, and monitoring of obese patients."--Steven B. Heymsfield, MD, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons; Obesity Research Center, St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, New York, NY
