Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Elizabeth Norton
Each volume in the Nutrition and Health series delves into a current issue surrounding teen health and wellness, nutrition, and the obesity epidemic. Eating Disorders examines anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, and other eating disorders that may affect teens, including symptoms, prevention, and treatment options. It also includes hotlines and organizations to help readers who have, or know someone who has, an eating disorder. Sidebars pull out important facts and primary source information, and extensive notes, websites, and further sources for reports round out each volume. The books in this series are filled with solid, relevant information, presented in a clear and easy-to-read format. Scientific information makes them useful for research, while first-person accounts of living with eating disorders and making healthy lifestyle choices make them relevant to all teens. The topics are timely and the information is up-to-date, with extensive bibliographies and web links for further reading. Though they will require hand-selling, report writers will find these books an invaluable resource. Teens looking for sources on healthy eating, exercise, and safe weight loss will also find good information here. This series is a useful purchase for school libraries and public libraries with large nonfiction collections. (Nutrition and Health) Reviewer: Elizabeth Norton
