Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: Revised annually since 1949, this book details the practical treatment of commonly encountered diagnoses.
Purpose: Each year, the editors invite leading experts to review and update each chapter in light of recently published literature. Thereby, they strive to present a book for practicing clinicians who can use it to quickly find new advances in chapters that present the new material atop the well known.
Audience: Intended primarily for practicing primary care clinicians, the book also is useful for specialists who have questions outside their areas of expertise. The contributors are clearly the leading experts in their fields.
Features: The chapters are organized into organ systems with specific disease entities under each. Each chapter focuses on current diagnostics and current therapeutics highlighted in boxes, with text explaining key concepts of the etiologies and physiology. There are current references on which changes to the chapter are based. The full-text online version is very easy to access and navigate. Of special note are the appendixes with nomograms, a section on biological weapons agents, herbal products, and a section on new drugs pending FDA approval.
Assessment: This is a valuable book, on a par with the other available major comprehensive medicine books. The photomicrographs would be better in color.
