Product Description


"Grogan has provided a thorough and comprehensive revision that belongs on the bookshelf of any clinician, researcher, or student interested in the fascinating field of body image. Interest in the topic of body image has expanded dramatically in the last decade, and each of the new and emerging areas are included in this book, including men's body image, cross-cultural perspectives, and avenues for enhancing body satisfaction. This book provides a roadmap for future research."J. Kevin Thompson, Department of Psychology, University of South Florida, USA

"In her revised volume, Professor Grogan leaves no stone unturned in telling the scientific and cultural stories of human embodiment. She is scrupulous in her psychological scholarship and articulate in her prose. Readers will be both fascinated and edified by this book’s thoughtful coverage of a subject that so deeply affects our lives." - Thomas F. Cash, Department of Psychology, Old Dominion University and Editor-in-Chief of Body Image: An International Journal of Research

"Sarah Grogan has offered a fine overview of contemporary knowledge in the field of body image. She summarizes, makes sense of, and organizes a vast array of research into one thoughtful, but very readable and easily digested volume, while at the same time capturing the vitality and excitement of research in body image." - Professor Marika Tiggemann, School of Psychology, Flinders University, Australia

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was required reading for a college class I am currently taking..It is easy to understand and goes thru a variety of problems and illnesses for all groups of people..There are very few clinical books on Men and how they perceive themselves so I found that information very useful..Would recommend if you have a friend or loved one with a body image disorder but know that it focuses on more than just eating disorders..

This is a book based on a number of studies related to body image and different populations. I was doing a talk on men and body image and this book helped tremendously.

It's pretty much a textbook. Lots of information, but not really an enjoyable read.
