This is a small, handy, readable book that tells in a few pages many of the elementary facts about the problems of overweight due to excess fat. Actuarial philosophy is liberally added in the early pages. The short chapters bounce somewhat unevenly from practicalities of treatment to etiological association with some rare diseases. Unnecessary emphasis is given to 'endogenous' obesity and to elaborate recommendations regarding exercise. There are some effective diagrams and a useful summary of nutritional factors and values.
