Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David E. Good, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is an extraordinarily ambitious, well done book that covers topics relevant for anyone who treats patients with hypertension, from generalists to those who treat very resistant hypertension in referral clinics.
Purpose: The authors have succeeded brilliantly, mainly by avoiding the pedantic detail that is so often included in such book and just as often ignored by the reader. However, they have also included the relevant data to guide an informed decision.
Audience: The book is targeted at physicians who deal with more complicated hypertensive cases. That being said, with the volume of patients with hypertension seen in clinical practice, this book is clearly relevant for all physicians who treat adults.
Features: Very specific scenarios in the management of hypertensive patients are presented. The book includes wide ranging subjects, including metabolic topics such as cortisol and hyperadrenalism; population/ethnicity based studies; common clinical scenarios such as diabetes, chronic kidney disease, previous stroke; and more specialized topics like pheochromocytoma, thyroid disease, adrenal disease.
Assessment: This is one of the best books of its type. It is more ambitious in its scope than most and more practical in its execution that almost any available. It is not a general or introductory level textbook and does not make this pretense or waste readers' time with irrelevant background. This book is truly the best of both worlds — eminently useful while being very inclusive.
