Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robert Kushner, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book presents the proceedings of a NATO Advanced Research Workshop on obesity treatment held in June 1993. The 37 international contributors to the book are leading experts in their respective fields.
Purpose: The purpose of the three-day international meeting was to evaluate the current knowledge base and conceptional paradigms of obesity treatment and to suggest directions for future research and clinical practice. Each of the 33 topics is critically addressed, researched, and presented in a concise chapter overview.
Audience: The book is useful for any individual interested in the field of obesity, including clinicians, researchers, and graduate students in nutrition.
Features: Because the book is a written proceedings of a conference, little attention was paid to the quality or quantity of illustrations. Hence, the, majority of the 4- to 10-page chapters are text only. The table of contents and index are adequate and useful. Chapter references are extensive and up-to-date.
Assessment: The well-renowned contributors provide an excellent and thoughtful discussion on a variety of challenging and unresolved issues in obesity treatment. Each topic is well summarized and referenced. Individuals interested in the field of obesity will find the book a useful addition to their libraries.

In light of the modest (at best) results of promoting weight maintenance among obese people, scientists from various fields that deal with the problem offer 33 papers on how it might be possible to rethink the entire issue and design research programs from a different approach. The topics include how much weight is required for substantial health gains, whether either weight stability or self-acceptance is a reasonable goal, the characteristics of successful weight maintainers, the search for obesity genes, and the social stress effects on regional fat distribution in male and female monkeys.
