"The management of eating disorders presents unique challenges to health care professionals, families and sufferers. Having an eating disorder is not a choice and the consequences of these illnesses can be dire. Dr. Kirkpatrick’s book Medical Crises in Eating Disorders uses clinical stories to help simplify and humanize these complex illnesses and serves as an excellent tool to better understand the medical needs of those affected and their families." - Dr. Julia Raudzus, MD, FRCPC, Medical Director, BC Provincial Tertiary Adult Eating Disorders Program, St. Paul's Hospital.

"James R. Kirkpatrick speaks to the eating disorder clinician and encourages us to delve deeper into the myriad of behavioral, psychological, and medical symptoms of our patients. He emphasizes the precariousness of these life-threatening illnesses and the need for crisis prevention." - Esther J. Dechant, MD, Medical Director, Klarman Eating Disorders Center, McLean Hospital and Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School.
