Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Deborah L Luttermoser, AAS, RRT, RCP (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: This book provides a foundation in the early education of students beginning any career in the field of medicine. This ninth edition offers well-done color photographs of real life examples of disease processes.
Purpose: This is a great base upon which students can start building their medical education. Due to the nature of change that comes with medicine, it is important to keep current with discoveries, concepts and new treatment methods.
Audience: This is a stepping stone for any student beginning their educational journey in medicine. It is directed at students in the allied health and nursing fields, but with its well-done illustrations, it also may serve as a reference for medical professionals who treat patients with these disease processes, such as residents and nurses.
Features: The book begins with the structural functions and changes that occur in a disease process, followed by specific organ groups and their common diseases. Concepts and treatment methods are presented in each chapter, which are beautifully illustrated with color photos of real-life examples of the disease. A supplemental reading list is helpful for those who want to further study a particular topic. Questions for review at the end of the chapter, an interactive website, and student workbook provide additional tools to acquire a deeper understanding of the material.
Assessment: Medicine is always advancing and new editions of medical books are necessary. Dr. Crowley accomplished this well with this update.
