Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Sally Ling, M.D.;FACP(University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine)
Description: This is the sixth edition of Cecil Essentials of Medicine the intent of which, as it was with its predecessors, is to be "a comprehensive textbook of internal medicine written with brevity...and clarity." The previous edition was published four years ago.
Purpose: The purpose is to be a user-friendly reference and companion to any or all of us who are continually learning in internal medicine.
Audience: The audience is internal medicine practitioners. The authors are an impressive group of academic physicians.
Features: This book covers every aspect of internal medicine, beginning with the molecular basis of human disease, to bioterrorism and the aging patient. "Tables and four-color illustrations enhance the layout in each chapter."
Assessment: This edition continues in the tradition that has made it a standard for the past 20 years. This single volume contains many updates including new molecular therapies, a section on men's health, and bioterrorism.
