Editorial Reviews

Peter M. Daher
This is a comprehensive review of clinical medicine formulated around each subspecialty. Each disease entity is thoroughly described with respect to its etiology, diagnosis, and treatment. Important aspects are bulleted. The express purpose is to serve as an intensive review for board preparation. However, it is also a solid review of internal medicine. The text is primarily directed to residents and practitioners of internal medicine. However, anyone who provides healthcare to adults, including family practitioners, will find it useful as well. The editors and contributors are all respected members of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. This book is a concise review of all the subspecialties of internal medicine. A bulleted format is utilized to direct the reader's attention to important areas. The book contains numerous review exercises which are challenging and serve to keep the reader's attention. Although there is already a wealth of information contained in this text, additional illustrations would be helpful. Unlike some other review texts, this book has a more clinical approach and the editors utilize a well-structured set of exercises. By offering a ""challenge"" at the end of each chapter, the reader is motivated to more fully engage in the text.
From The Critics
New edition of a reference based on the board review course given annually by the Cleveland Clinic faculty to help students prepare for the ABIM examination. Each of the 74 chapters and accompanying references have been revised to reflect the current best practices of medicine. Other updated material includes 200-plus new questions in the mock exam, with detailed explanation and discussion of correct and incorrect answers, as well as a new collection of clinical vignettes stressing management and decision-making processes. Topics include multidisciplinary skills for the internist, infectious disease, hematology and medical oncology, rheumatology, pulmonary and critical care medicine, endocrinology, nephrology and hypertension, gastroenterology, and cardiology. Contains color and b&w illustrations. Edited by Stoller, Muzaffar Ahmad, and David L. Longworth, all of The Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

Longworth infectious diseases, all of the Cleveland Clinic, present 76 contributions that cover topics including multidisciplinary skills for the internist, infectious disease, hematology and medical oncology, rheumatology, pulmonary and critical care medicine, endocrinology, nephrology and hypertension, gastroenterology, cardiology, after the boards medical ethics, managed care, and computers and medicine, and a mock board simulation.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This review book, based upon the Cleveland Clinic's annual board review course, employs a combination of prose and bulleted text to cover the necessary information that those approaching the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) examination must remember. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: As a board preparation book, the contributors focus on the facts and scenarios most likely to be encountered in the examination. The Cleveland Clinic's board review course is one of the more renowned preparation courses and this is a supplement to that course.
Audience: Clearly, this is intended for residents preparing for the examination, but it has a much broader audience, including those in practice who wish to remain current in internal medicine. The contributors, all faculty members at Cleveland Clinic, are well known in the medical community as outstanding educators.
Features: The book is organized according to topics with organ-focused chapters. The combination of prose and bulleted lists makes focusing on the relevant facts quite easy. There is also an online component, which I had significant difficulty accessing as it was slow and the screen to enter the access code was hard to find. After entering the access code, I was continually asked if I wished to purchase the book and I never was able to view the online resources. In the book, the tables are quite clear and the review exercises appropriate.
Assessment: Overall, the print version is quite good, comprehensive, and easy to use. The online component is difficult to navigate, a function of the publisher and not the Cleveland Clinic. The specific advantages this book has over other board preparation texts are the helpful review exercises.
