Review quote

"It has taken more than 50 years for NES to receive the attention it merits, and this is the first volume devoted to all aspects of the disorder. Strongly recommended for clinicians and researchers alike. An invaluable resource." - Christopher G. Fairburn, University of Oxford, UK "Virtually all that is known clinically and scientifically about Night Eating Syndrome (NES) is covered in concise chapters in this skillfully edited guide. The contributors are experts who present state-of-the-art information about the nature of NES and methods for assessment and treatment. This is an essential book for clinicians in all healthcare disciplines interested in eating and weight issues." - Carlos M. Grilo, Yale University School of Medicine, Connecticut, USA "The most comprehensive account of NES to date. This volume provides in-depth coverage of the clinical aspects of this puzzling syndrome, as well as the latest research findings from a superb roster of leaders in the field. Clinicians, researchers, and students will find this book well worth reading." - W. Stewart Agras, Stanford University School of Medicine, California, USA "This welcome compendium brings together an international group of experts whose research has defined the cutting edges of the field...Each chapter presents a succinct and scholarly review of its area, with suggestions for future research...This book will interest researchers and a wide audience of clinicians treating patients with eating disporders, obesity, and other psychiatric and sleep disorders as well." - Eating Disorders Review (Vol. 23, No. 6, November-December 2012) "This book is the first work of its kind on NES. It is an invaluable resource for clinicians, medical professional, researchers, and graduate students in the eating disorders and obesity fields. It has convinced me that, at the very minimum, screening for symptoms of NES in treatment is a worthwhile endeavor. With the guidance of this book, I am confident that I am equipped with the best available knowledge and tools to understand, assess, and treat a patient with NES. This book is an intriguing, compelling and informative read and I am already looking forward to future editions." - June Liang, Eating Disorders: The Journal of Treatment & Prevention (Vol. 21, No. 4, June 2013)show more
