Reviews and Endorsements

This remarkably comprehensive and current resource will be an indispensable addition to the libraries of clinicians and scholars alike. The chapters represent a rich synthesis of the wide-ranging psychosocial and biological investigations of obesity and eating disorders, and the equally diverse approaches to their clinical management.

Michael Strober, PhD, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA & Editor in Chief, International Journal of Eating Disorders

"This impressive handbook offers, in one volume, a fine distillation of contemporary knowledge and best practice in the complex and interrelated areas of body image disturbance, eating disorders, and obesity. The explicit integration of current research with current clinical practice makes this volume stand out and will ensure its place as an indispensable resource for both those wishing to get up to speed and for established researchers and clinicians alike."
