"Wisely, [Rao] notes that [there] are no magic bullets or quick fixes, but a reading of this book will put your child on the path to good health."
"Dr. Rao's new book Child Obesity is full of useful scientific and practical information and is told in a light, easygoing manner. This book will not only help parents of obese children, but is a must-read for all parents who want to create a healthy home environment for their family."

"Finally, straight talk about child obesity without the hype! An accurate appraisal of this epidemic — and what we as parents can do to raise healthy and active children."

"This book reads very easily. It uses an evidence based approach that is refreshing in an era when most diet related books make outrageous, unsubstantiated claims. Dr. Rao blends this approach with his experience and uses interesting examples to illustrate the facts. This book will be useful to any parent concerned about their child's weight."
