Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"For more than a decade Christopher Fairburn has been at the forefront of the effort by researchers and clinicians to understand the nature and causes of binge eating. He has made a huge contribution to this field, not least because he is responsible for having developed and evaluated the most successful method of treatment for binge eating problems. In this fascinating book he not only brings the reader up to date with the latest knowledge, but also provides a structured program of practical strategies for recovery which will be of invaluable assistance to anyone with binge eating problems." --Peter J. Cooper, Winnicott Research Unit, University of Cambridge Clinical School, England

"There is an extensive scientific literature of research of binge eating, however, the scientific advances have not yet been presented to the general public. Overcoming Binge Eating addresses this important gap. Written by one of the world's foremost authorities in eating disorders, this book takes an empathic look at binge eating, provides a comprehensive summary of current knowledge of binge eating, and offers detailed suggestions for how to overcome this problem.

Written for a lay readership, Overcoming Binge Eating offers both hope and concrete advice to sufferers. This highly informative book will also be useful for those who want to learn more about binge eating. Mental health professionals will find this book an excellent source of information and a valuable tool for adjunct bibliotherapy." --Ruth H. Striegel-Moore, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychology at Wesleyan University and President-Elect of the Academy for Eating Disorders

"This reader-friendly book provides a lucid and comprehensive account of the nature and treatment of binge eating by one of the world's leading clinical researchers. Based on the most recent scientific evidence, and reflecting Fairburn's many years of unsurpassed clinical experience, this text is unrivaled as the best source for educating both the public and patients about binge eating. But it does more than educate and enlighten. It includes a detailed self-help program for overcoming binge eating in bulimia nervosa and obesity. The state-of-the-art techniques in this program have proved effective in numerous scientific studies. The program can be used on its own or in combination with therapy." --G. Terence Wilson, PhD, Oscar K. Buros Professor of Psychology, Rutgers University

"Christopher Fairburn is one of the world's foremost authorities on problem eating. Because he is one of those rare individuals who understands and can work with people, but is also a top-flight researcher, his book offers state-of-the-art, helpful information, written in a caring way. You can trust this book. It is a landmark in the field." --Kelly D. Brownell, PhD, Director, Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, Yale University

"Dr. Christopher Fairburn is one of the world's experts on the causes and treatment of binge eating. In Overcoming Binge Eating, he has written a scholarly yet readable summary of recent advances in our knowledge of this common affliction. More impressively, Overcoming Binge Eating contains a straightforward and user-friendly self-help manual for those who are struggling with this problem. In bringing to the public the latest scientific understanding and new treatment methods, Dr. Fairburn has made a major contribution to progress in dealing with eating disorders." --B. Timothy Walsh, MD, Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, College of Physicians & Surgeons, Columbia University

"You just can't read this book, you are impelled to act. A 'must read' for binge eaters and their families."--Laura Hill, PhD, Former Director, National Eating Disorders Organization

Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry

"The book is to be recommended to anyone working with this population."--Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry
Behaviour Research and Therapy

"This is an extremely well written and informative book....a masterpiece of logical structure and a compendium of useful and valuable information."--Behaviour Research and Therapy
