Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Donald R. Frey, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This 21st edition of Cecil's classic textbook continues to be this country's "gold standard" medical reference. Last updated in 1996, this work is an in-depth discussion of the pathophysiology and treatment of virtually every medical problem a physician might encounter.
Purpose: In this new edition, the editors build upon the previous edition's existing extensive knowledge base, and combine recent advances in molecular biology with the current approaches of evidence-based medicine. Few editors of reference texts would attempt to accomplish such a bold endeavor, but the editors of this text do so in splendid fashion.
Audience: The depth and detail of the book make it an outstanding reference for all practitioners, from entry-level medical students to subspecialists. The editors are renowned internists, and each chapter author is a recognized authority in his/her respective field.
Features: Both common and rare disorders are exhaustively described in equal detail. Underlying basic science concepts are stressed and correlated with each clinical condition. Treatment options are effectively discussed with underlying therapeutic principles outlined and explained. New chapters on ear, nose, and throat, as well as women's health, are major plusses.
Assessment: Perhaps the best all-around medical reference available, this work holds its own with any other medical text worldwide. If the practice of medicine could be condensed to one volume, it would likely look much like this book — it should be on the shelf of every practicing physician.
