This is the fourth edition of this complete medicine text. The previous edition was published four years ago. This purpose is to serve as a primary reference for internal medicine residents and practitioners. This book is of more use than others in its field. The book is very complete and accurate; it addresses both residents and practitioners at an appropriate level. The contributors are all utmost authorities on their respective topics. The illustrations and tables are well executed and their purpose is clear. The table of contents is especially useful, listing topics both by specific disease entity and by clinical syndromes. Although at first glance this would seem to be repetitious, it does make the book more useful. This is a first-rate medicine textbook. The contributors write about their topics with clarity and authority. The text is adequately supplemented with tables, lists, and illustrations. It is a very user-friendly book. Changes in medical knowledge and treatment during the past four years warrant purchase of this new edition.

This fifth edition textbook replaces the 1994 edition, and it covers all major subspecialty areas of internal medicine, including neurology and dermatology. In addition, there are chapters on topics that transcend subspecialties, including principles of diagnostic testing, bioethics, cost effectiveness, and clinical practice guidelines. The stated purpose is to provide a comprehensive textbook that is readable and rapidly accessible in daily practice, and these objectives are nicely met. It is targeted toward students, housestaff, and practicing physicians. As in previous editions, the contributors make generous use of tables and algorithms which add immensely to the text. Many chapters include a highlighted box on "When to Refer." A section on special topics covers areas often neglected in internal medicine texts, including preoperative evaluations, medical disorders during pregnancy, ENT disorders, and geriatrics. The division of chapters into subspecialty areas and further subdivisions within each section sometimes create artificial barriers and make information harder to locate within the table of contents. For example, a search through the section on pulmonary and critical care reveals nothing on reactive airways disease, which is included in the clinical immunology, rheumatology, and dermatology section. Similarly, evaluation of joint complaints is found under clinical immunology rather than joint diseases. This text is easy to use for quick reference on clinical problems and the main subject areas are well written. However, some areas are not well covered. For example, there is a chapter on women's health, which includes a brief discussion of menopause and contraception,but menstrual disorders such as dysmenorrhea, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, and PMS are not covered. HIV/AIDS-related topics and nutrition-related topics are covered rather briefly compared to other leading medicine textbooks. However, for the great majority of topics, this is a useful addition in the clinical setting and it is a worthwhile update for any reference library.

**** An encyclopedic reference text for students, residents, and practicing physicians, previously published in 1983, 1987, and 1990 by Little, Brown (the 1987 edition is cited in Brandon-Hill). While the basic format remains the same, the text has changed dramatically, with new chapters on molecular biology of the cardiovascular system, cardiac transplantation, gastrointestinal manifestations of HIV infection and AIDS, faintness and syncope, principles of neurorehabilitation, spinal cord injury, multiple organ dysfunction syndrome in the context of ARDS, pulmonary transplantation, sleep- related respiratory disorders, fever in the hospitalized patient, infections caused by the Candida, Actinomyces, and Nocardia species, periarticular rheumatic complaints, and Raynaud's phenomenon.
