From the Back Cover:

The Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity presents an up-to-date survey of the current scientific understanding of obesity and the metabolic syndrome, as well as an overview of the most significant changes to the field over the past 30 years. By first presenting a historical context for overweight, the book drives home the point that obesity is by no means simply a contemporary problem, and its continued existence means that we neither understand it, nor have developed effective therapies. The Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity is a comprehensive reference for the treatment of obesity in two parts. Part I, The Problem, examines the entire scope of the obesity epidemic, including epidemiology and history, costs of treatment, pathology, clinical types, age-related issues, and general health risks. Part II, The Solutions, describes several treatment options including diet, behavior modification, exercise, pharmacological treatment, and surgery. This volume is a thorough reference for obesity and the metabolic syndrome and offers an in-depth assessment of the problem and its myriad potential treatment options.

Review:

From the reviews:

"This book provides condensed coverage of the findings from basic and applied human research on obesity and the related disorders of diabetes ... . The potential audience for this book includes biological scientists, behavioral scientists, health professionals, and interested individuals ... . This is an excellent, up-to-date book on the causes and treatments of obesity. ... it is possible to cover a broad area of obesity knowledge in a modest number of pages and thus is ideal for cover-to-cover read." (Dale A. Schoeller, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2008)

"Bray’s book, The Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity, would serve as a pragmatic tutorial. ... Each chapter begins with a helpful list of take-home messages and ends with a rich supply of references. ... The author also summarizes the weight-loss effects of a number of drugs approved for conditions other than obesity ... ." (Eric Colman, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 301 (15), April, 2009)
