For those interested in the treatment of eating disorders, this substantive new clinical handbook by Drs Grilo and Mitchell provides a superb resource, presenting the best perspectives of an internationally renowned group of the field’s leading authorities. The handbook accomplishes several feats. First, its clearly written chapters review the tried and true; next, it updates the growing evidence base on which clinical practices have increasingly relied; and finally, it describes some of the newer and still-evolving theoretical paradigms and treatment strategies for eating disorders, several of which have not previously appeared in major texts.
