What People are Saying About This

David L. Katz

"Drs. Sylvia and Byram Karasu have approached the topic of weight with an exceptional blend of scholarship and compassion. The book consistently demonstrates, and thus imparts, a deep understanding not only of the condition we call obesity, but of the individuals affected by it. Thorough and thoughtful, practical and impassioned, The Gravity of Weight will make better clinicians of its readers."--(David L. Katz, M.D., M.P.H., FACPM, FACP, Director, Prevention Research Center, Yale University School of Medicine, Author, Nutrition in Clinical Practice)

Antonio M. Gotto

"The Gravity of Weight: A Clinical Guide to Weight Loss and Maintenance examines the intersection of mind, brain, and body as it pertains to physical self-image and dieting. Written by a pair of renowned psychiatrists, the book provides a comprehensive, up-to-the-minute overview of both the psychological and biological factors that affect weight loss and maintenance. It is a valuable and clearly written resource for clinicians of all kinds who may be faced with the growing problem of obesity."--(Antonio M. Gotto, Jr. M.D., Stephen and Suzanne Weiss Dean, Weill Cornell Medical College and co-author (with Michael E. DeBakey, Lynne W. Scott, and John P. Foreyt), The New Living Heart Diet)

Frank B. Hu

"Obesity is now a global phenomenon—a complex problem that goes well beyond simply eating too much or moving too little. The authors of The Gravity of Weight: A Clinical Guide to Weight Loss and Maintenance accurately depict this crisis and its medical and psychosocial implications. They offer well-researched and valuable insight into the intricate connections between weight control and the exquisitely balanced workings of our brains, bodies, minds, and souls. This book is a must-read for anyone who is interested in managing, treating, and preventing obesity."--(Frank B. Hu is Professor of Nutrition, Epidemiology, and Medicine at Harvard University and author of Obesity Epidemiology)

Brian Wansink

"The Gravity of Weight nails down the top thinking and latest clinical research on weight loss and maintenance. It illuminates the physiological factors of weight loss and weight gain, doing so in a punchy, complete, no-nonsense manner. In addition to being an in-depth reference, its use of sidebars and call-outs make it an invaluable handbook for the busy clinician. This is a must-have guide for professionals who want to be serious and successful with their patients’ weight loss."--(Brian Wansink, Ph.D., Author of Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think)

For students this is a transportable, very easy to use DSM-IV. It's a perfect adjunct to the full size in a format that fits easily into a backpack or other carry along. The spiral binding is excellent. I don't want to ruin the ending but the last page, Unspecified mental disorder (nonpsychotic), is really unexpected!

This book is the less intimidating version of the complete 'DSM-IV-TR'. It's a no nonsense summary of the salient points of the complete text, and in that sense it's somewhat more practical and quicker to use. Professionals in the field of psychiatry may want to keep it handy. Also, for those outside the field of psychiatry, it could also be considered as an alternative to buying the complete 'DSM-IV-TR', though I would suggest the complete book for those most interested in getting a thorough look at the bible of psychiatry.

The smaller version of the DSM-IV is perfect for students as well as practitioners. The larger version stays in the office, the smaller one fits in a pocket or a purse. Love it.

I order this book and received it timely, in fact, speedy would be a better word. I appreciated the quick turn around because I am using this book for school.

The DSM IV-TR is a great book to promote diseases that fit the armaments of medications that the pharmaceutical companies would like physicians to use. The problem with the whole DSM serie is that it is mostly subjective and based on speculation. The DSM is not based on hard empirical evidence but on a consensual system by few well-connected psychiatrists on the payroll of the pharmaceutical companies. These same psychiatrists also happen to belong to the American Psychiatric Association and/or work as hired guns/consultants for the APA, which also happens to receive yearly funding or gifts from the pharmaceutical companies $500,000 worth. The whole process is deceitful and shameful!!!
