Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Donald R. Frey, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This is the 52nd edition of this annually updated text. As in previous updates, the book seeks to provide the most recent advances in medical management relevant to the practicing clinician.
Purpose: The purpose is to present the most current principles of medical management in a single, readable text. For years, this work has set the standard for annually updated publications dealing with new treatment standards, and this edition continues this record of excellence.
Audience: Although clearly written for practicing physicians, the book will be useful to all those who are personally involved in managing patient care. Dr. Robert Rakel continues his strong tradition of excellence in selecting authoritative authors who describe their personal "methods" of treatment.
Features: The book collects individual diseases into organ system sections and describes the treatment of each condition as practiced by the chapter's author. The appropriate preventative measures, when appropriate, are also discussed. Charts and tables are useful, but not over done. A new section on travel medicine is particularly helpful.
Assessment: After 52 years, this continues to be the busy clinician's mainstay as a single source reference for the latest in medical treatment. Dr. Rakel's continued editorship ensures that this year's edition will again find its way onto thousands of office bookshelves.
