The mission of the book is to provide clinically appropriate, scientifically supported information on obesity. … The book meets the author’s objective as an easy-to-use clinical reference for healthcare professionals in pediatrics covering the entire range of issues in childhood obesity. … The audience consists of pediatric healthcare professionals in all areas of pediatrics dealing with families and children who are obese. … This is an excellent book by experienced authors in the field of childhood obesity detailing various approaches in the diagnosis and management of this condition. Particularly impressive are the section on medical aspects of treatment, clinical evaluation, behavioral counseling, surgery, and interactive group instruction. This is an important book that should be part of pediatrician’s library.”
— Douglas Moodie, Ochsner Clinic Foundation, in Doody’s Review Service

“This handbook focuses its attention on the most disturbing component of the obesity issue – the overweight child. … This text examines the subject of pediatric obesity in compete terms (medical, psychological, nutritional) in order to show the healthcare provider that child-patients are much different that adults and must be treated with a tempered hand. … the goal is to teach children to become conscious of the things they are eating and the affects food has on ambition, health, energy-levels and appearance. … is a clearly written textbook which presents a wealth of clinical data on all aspects of childhood obesity, with well-shaped chapters on the psychological and behavioral factors of obesity serving to demonstrate that each child-patient requires an individualized care-plan and extra patience. … Recommended to all clinicians who treat the pediatric patient and counsel parents on how to care for an obese child. Also recommended to Health Science libraries as well-rounded reference that covers both medical and psychological elements of obesity.”
— John Aiello, in Electric Review

“The purpose of this handbook is to provide background information, clinical examination tools, and available treatment approaches for medical professionals who are interested in combating the increasing prevalence of pediatric obesity. This book is relevant for pediatric physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. The material in the book is covered in a comprehensive manner. … The book is an excellent source for up-to-date information on the many aspects of pediatric obesity. The content is well supported with references to hundreds of current articles … the content is covered in sufficient detail for the book to be considered a comprehensive text on the subject. … In addition, the book provides 3 separate voluminous appendices covering 120 pages. These appendices include clinical management forms, checklists, fitness evaluation forms, testing protocols, resources, a table of food portions and units, and full meal plans. This reference is relevant to physical therapists and physical therapists assistants who are interested in the topic of pediatric obesity, and I would recommend its addition to their professional library.”
