Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Charles E. Irwin, Jr., MD (University of California San Francisco)
Description: The third edition of this book is completely revised with five distinct parts covering the principles of adolescent health care; general medical disorders; adolescent sexuality and reproductive health; special issues in adolescent health; and behavioral and mental health issues.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide extensive and highly practical information about the comprehensive care of young people from late childhood/early adolescence through young adulthood. All of the material is presented within a developmental context.
Audience: The book is targeted for residents, fellows in training in adolescent medicine, and primary care clinicians. The book will be most useful for primary care clinicians and residents who are in primary care residency training programs. The authors and consultants are highly credible. They have a wealth of clinical and educational experience in treating adolescent patients as well as in teaching residents and primary care clinicians adolescent medicine.
Features: The presentation of information is primarily through text and not in the form of charts, figures, or tables. The references are organized by categories at the end of each chapter, with excellent state-of-the-art reviews and up-to-date research data. The appendixes are helpful and include one that provides Internet sites as well as national health-related and youth-related organizations and telephone numbers.
Assessment: This book fills a major void in the field of adolescent medicine textbooks. It represents a major improvement over the previous two editions. This third edition emphasizes the critical issues of adolescent medicine rather than duplicating what one can find in comprehensive standard pediatric and internal medicine textbooks.
