Reviews

“This is a concise review of obesity, including its background, prevention, and medical and surgical care. … The audience is clinicians, although the book also would be very useful for students and those in training. … it highlights important points that clinicians need to know. Overall, a useful read.” (Heather Huang, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2016)
