Editorial Reviews

Journal of the American Medical Association
"This handbook should prove relevant to a wide audience. Researchers, especially graduate students, will find a wealth of information on assessment instruments and future directions for study....The book will not only be useful to researchers but also will give clinicians such as psychiatrists, psychologists, and mental health professionals a deeper understanding of cutting-edge issues of body image."—Journal of the American Medical Association
Nursing Standard
"Particularly relevant to mental health practitioners, clinical psychologists and nurses delivering holistic care."—Nursing Standard
Psychology of Women Quarterly
"An invaluable theoretical reference and inspiration for research....A resource that should have a place on the shelf of anyone who engages in research or practice concerning body image and its related psychopathologies....Well worth the purchase....The novel topics and integration of cutting-edge science will help guide the next wave of research, practice, and prevention work....Chapters of this book would make for excellent readings for courses that discuss such disparate topics as eating psychopathology, applications of feminist theory, and health psychology, among others. In addition, this book would make an excellent primary text for an undergraduate or graduate topics course concerning body image. Cash and Smolak also do a superb job of integrating the information from this 53-chapter text in their introductory and concluding chapters, accurately assessing the strengths as well as potential areas of growth for the science surrounding this construct."—Psychology of Women Quarterly
The New England Journal of Medicine

"This timely book may encourage greater communication and cross-fertilization among disciplines and fields. It provides a wealth of ideas for those interested in this fascinating topic and will serve as a valuable and frequently referenced resource."--The New England Journal of Medicine

From the Publisher
"This volume offers the most comprehensive review to date of knowledge about body image. Whether you are a professional or student interested in body image, you should keep this book close at hand. The second edition maintains the high standards of its predecessor while incorporating the latest research. Highlights include more information about the neuroscientific bases of body image and expanded coverage of prevention."—Sabine Wilhelm, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School

"The first edition of this book was great, and this one is even better. It captures the significant advances that have occurred in the field over the past decade. This is the definitive work on all matters pertaining to body image."—Kelly D. Brownell, PhD, Department of Psychology and Director, Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, Yale University

"Cash, Smolak, and their contributing authors summarize most of what is currently known about body image. They cover the full range of relevant topics in 53 concise chapters. This terrific volume is the standard work on body image for clinicians, researchers, teachers, and students across disciplines."—Carlos M. Grilo, PhD, Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology and Director, Program for Obesity, Weight, and Eating Research, Yale University 

"Cash and Smolak are world-renowned researchers who provide extensive information on all aspects of body image disturbance. This book is 'must' reading for anyone entering the field of mental health, as well as those already practicing. It discusses everything from developmental aspects of body image, to the normal range of appearance-related concerns, to assessment and treatment of body image disorders. There is no comparable book on the market today."—Fugen Neziroglu, PhD, ABBP, Director, Bio-Behavioral Institute, Great Neck, New York
