"To appreciate the scope and utility of the manual, it is imperative that the reader read the Preface, which is well written and sets the tone, orienting readers appropriately to the use of the book and its unusual organization...packed with useful information and serves to encourage its readers systematically to evaluate decline in the clinical conditions of patients with serious life threatening illnesses.
