“It has taken more than 50 years for NES to receive the attention it merits, and this is the first volume devoted to all aspects of the disorder. Strongly recommended for clinicians and researchers. An invaluable resource.”

—Christopher G. Fairburn, OBE, DM, FMedSci, FRCPsych, Professor of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

“This volume offers clinicians an authoritative resource for helping patients who suffer from NES, a condition whose pathophysiology and treatment have been poorly understood until recently. The book balances recent findings and advances with attention to what remains unknown. It provides a unique and important framework for developing a future research agenda for this complex syndrome.”
