Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Mark D. Goodman, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This book updates and clarifies the current state-of-the-art therapy for HIV. As noted by the authors in the preface, new chapters cover global epidemiology, clinical considerations in developing countries, antiretroviral treatment, and barriers to implementing care in resource-limited settings. The second edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: The book provides "essential information for the care of HIV-infected patients." It goes without saying that the objectives are worthy, and the book succeeds admirably in achieving them.
Audience: Although written for researchers, teachers, and clinicians, the book is inclusive and comprehensive enough that it will be a valuable tool for students as well. I suspect that infectious disease specialists will find it less useful, however. The authors are pre-eminent in their field, and almost all of the heavy hitters are represented.
Features: The book covers history, pathogenesis and transmission, prevention and primary care of HIV infected patients, with chapters exploring HAART, treatment complications, opportunistic cancer management, HIV infection in special populations, and global viewpoints. My favorite is chapter 8, which deals with a diagnostic approach to common clinical syndromes such as fever and pulmonary, GI, and neurologic symptoms. This book is heaven-sent for interns, residents, and primary care physicians at 4:00 a.m. in the emergency room. The boxed summary/key points throughout the chapters are very helpful.
Assessment: It's a pleasure to review this third edition, as I've been anticipating its publication since I reviewed the second edition some years ago. In terms of quality and usefulness, this is the standout book in the field.
