“As a nursing instructor, the Textbook of Laboratory and Diagnostic Testing: Practical Application of Nursing Process at the Bedside is one book that I would highly recommend be a required textbook for any nursing student. I appreciate that the textbook is distinctly formatted to present diagnostic and laboratory studies while also including case studies. The textbook walks students through understanding why a study is being performed, how it is done, and explains the clinical significance in relation to a given patient situation all while using the nursing process.

Midlife Eating Disorders: Your Journey to Recovery


By (author): Cynthia M. Bulik Ph.D.

In most people’s minds, “eating disorder” (ED) conjures images of a thin, white, upper-middle-class teenage girl. The ED landscape has changed. Countless men and women in midlife and beyond, from all ethnic backgrounds, also struggle with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, purging disorder, and binge eating disorder. Some people have suffered since youth; others relapsed in midlife, often after a stressor such as infidelity, divorce, death of a loved one, menopause, or unemployment. Still others experience eating disorder symptoms for the first time in midlife.

Primary care physicians, ob-gyns, and other practitioners may overlook these disorders in adults or, even worse, demean them for not having outgrown these adolescent problems. Treatments for adults must acknowledge and address the unique challenges faced by those middle-aged or older. Midlife Eating Disorders-a landmark book-guides adults in understanding “Why me?” and “Why now?” It shows a connection between the rise in midlife ED and certain industries that foster discontent with the natural aging process. It also gives readers renewed hope by explaining how to overcome symptoms and access resources and support. Renowned eating disorder specialist Cynthia M. Bulik, Ph.D., helps partners and family members develop compassion for those who suffer with ED-and helps health professionals appreciate the nuances associated with detecting and treating midlife eating disorders.
