Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amer Smajkic, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive review of the current information about anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and other kinds of eating disorders. The book describes risk factors, symptoms, medical complications, and treatment. It offers facts about body image, self esteem, nutrition, and exercise and includes a section that examines the relationship between athletics and eating disorders. Information about maintaining healthy eating and exercise habits is also included along with suggestions for additional reading and a directory of resources.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an inclusive book that organizes and disperses knowledge about all aspects of eating disorders. The book is organized in seven parts including overview, specifics, athletics and eating disorders, prevention and treatment, health issues, maintaining healthy eating, and sources for additional information.
Audience: Both parents and mental health professionals providing services to children and adolescents with eating disorders are the intended audience. It is very valuable for psychologists, counselors, individual therapists, social workers, psychiatrists, and medical students.
Features: The book outlines care, treatment, and prevention with realistic proposals on how to improve the situation of children and adolescents who suffer from eating disorders. In addition, the major principles and strategies of treatment and intervention are described, on an empirical basis, using a selected number of treatment approaches. Finally, the possibilities, strategies, and limitations of early detection and prevention are reviewed with the aim of improving the living conditions of children and families who are dealing with eating disorders. It takes reader step-by-step from the general description to specific disorders, treatment, and prevention. The book includes tables with handy explanations and tips. References are up-to-date and voluminous.
Assessment: This is a good and functional book for clinicians and mental health workers. It is written in a clear and structured manner and brings together rather complicated approaches in a simple style. It covers all the important issues in the area of eating disorders.
This series entry covers a wide range of eating and body image disorders, along with related issues such as athletes and eating, associated mental illnesses, and proper weight loss for those truly overweight. Chapters cover the causes, symptoms, preventions, and treatments of these often devastating illnesses. Also included are boxes called "It's a Fact!" that add tidbits of information, such as a list of celebrities that have dealt with eating disorders and a quick test to see if you are at risk. Chapters alternate between a narrative overview of each topic and a list of frequently asked questions. The FAQ format is particularly familiar to today's teens and is the most accessible part. "Quick Tip" and "Remember!" boxes add direct advice on how to apply the information presented. The information is comprehensive and well documented, and unfamiliar terms have definitions in noticeable boxes inside the chapters. The source notes are also in each chapter rather than at the end. Statistics abound but always in an understandable context. The book ends with an extensive list of additional resources, including hotlines and organizations to turn to for help. The completeness and even, objective tone make this book an excellent resource for teens and those who work with them. Although focused on teens, much of the information and guidance applies to adults as well. [Editor's Note: Among other topics covered in the series include learning disabilities, alcohol, cancer, and suicide.] (Teen Health).

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-Divided into well-organized sections, this comprehensive volume examines in great detail the causes, symptoms, treatments, and prevention of eating disorders, as well as such related issues as body image, self-esteem, athleticism, and nutrition. Features such as "It's a Fact!!" and "What's It Mean?" allow students to get quick information and/or a clearer understanding of what they have already read. Very much like Mark J. Kittleson's The Truth about Eating Disorders (Facts On File, 2004), this book covers the topic in a lucid manner but delves deeper into every aspect of an eating disorder. The appendix is filled with additional resources, including Web sites and contact information for reputable organizations. A solid addition for any nonfiction or reference collection.-Kristen M.
