"This truly is a comprehensive treatment guide. The authors go through the process step-by-step, staying true to the cognitive-behavioral tradition...Numerous tables and figures help to elucidate the material and brief case examples are also used in some chapters. The book successfully leads readers in an orderly fashion through the assessment and treatment phases of eating disorders, providing principles, not specific protocols." --Doody's Book Review Service
