This book is a handy reference for busy practitioners who need to know the bottom line quickly in the medical care of patients with eating disorders. This book consists of 15 chapters covering diagnosis, medical evaluation, and specific medical problems in eating disorders. Each chapter begins with a list of common questions and has numerous tables, referred to as "boxes" in the book. In most chapters the boxes consist of valuable, concisely presented facts for the reader. In a few chapters, however, the contents of the boxes are rambling and redundant.
