In the chapters on treatment, Phillips provides extensive explanation of medication treatments and cognitive-behavioral therapy. While she should be applauded for her attempt to enlighten and perhaps empower the reader to fully understand treatment options, the degree of detail in this section may overwhelm the reader, making it difficult to discern which points are the most relevant. For example, in the chapter on medication, Phillips not only explains serotonin reuptake inhibitors but also lists their typical dosage range, comments on efficacy studies, and discusses augmentation options, dosage, and standard deviations. The score ranges of responders and nonresponders on the body dysmorphic disorder version of the Yale—Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale are another example of unnecessary detail that clouds the most relevant points for the reader. The section on treatment algorithms is an example of fairly detailed information more typical for texts for clinicians although it does provide hope for the reader who is not responding to a treatment. Similarly, the chapter on cognitive-behavioral therapy provides a useful description on the treatment and studies supporting its use. The subsequent details of conducting a cognitive-behavioral treatment are more relevant for a psychiatric resident learning how to conduct the treatment than a patient learning about treatment options. In fact, the amount of psychiatric detail found throughout the book is at times so far beyond the knowledge base of most lay readers that it is augmented by a lengthy glossary at the end of the book. The reader could become distracted by these terms and definitions, although they are necessary to maintain the level of sophisticated explanation offered throughout the book. The final chapters for families and friends and on getting help are practical and worthwhile.
