"In 32 chapters the authors review the influence of lifestyle on medical conditions, but more important is how changes in lifestyle may improve these diseases. An interesting approach which has led to formation of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. For clinical practitioners." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 14 (2), December, 2016)"Each chapter is a standalone monograph with an introduction, very short vignettes of a case history, followed by the psychological aspects, physical impact, some evidence-based management thoughts, resources, and references. ... This book takes a comprehensive approach, covering many of areas that the single-issue monographs on this topic do not. As such this is a valuable overview that has tremendous value to primary care or specialist clinicians, and for supporting medical professionals such as nutritionists, physical therapists, and pharmacists." (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2016)
