Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Donald R. Frey, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: The new edition of this comprehensive, increasingly popular textbook of medicine continues its tradition of offering user-friendly features as an enhancement to accessing the work's large volume of information.
Purpose: The text seeks to provide all of the detail and information of a full fledged text in a format that allows for more ready access to clinically relevant information than is available in most standard texts. With each new edition, this effort continues to bear greater fruit.
Audience: The text is written for physicians at all levels of training who provide care to adult patients. The authors include a large selection of distinguished academicians representing a broad cross section of American medical schools.
Features: The book contains over 3,000 pages of well-organized, detailed information regarding the science of internal medicine. Each chapter is straightforward in its discussion of disease pathogenesis, clinical findings, diagnosis, and management. The illustrations and tables are especially well done and add significantly to the text's usefulness. In addition, the book opens with a 100-page summary (titled "Rapid Access Guide to Internal Medicine") that effectively summarizes the text's fuller version. An index of the book's numerous "clinical decision guides" is also included and is especially helpful.
Assessment: This book continues to excel as the best example of a work that combines the completeness of a comprehensive textbook with features that allow for more ready access to clinical information. It is clearly becoming one of the most important standard textbooks of internal medicine available today.

Interviews & Essays

Barnes & Noble.com Interview with H. David Humes, M.D., Editor of Kelley's Textbook of Internal Medicine, Fourth Edition

Barnes & Noble.com: In your opinion, what is the biggest challenge you face when starting an editorial project of this size?

H. David Humes: Selecting editors and developing a controlled process of oversight, especially timelines.

B&N.com: Would you briefly describe what you think are some of the major differences between this new fourth edition of Kelley's Textbook of Internal Medicine and its predecessor?

HDH: This edition has seven new section editors, and many sections have been reorganized to improve accessibility and content. There are also many, many new authors in the fourth edition, ensuring that the content remains fresh and up to date. The latest edition features a large number of clinical decision guides, merging evidence-based medicine with the immediate needs of the clinician at the point of care. Many of these clinical decision guides have been compiled into a new title, Clinical Decision Manual, edited by Kim A. Eagle, M.D. Finally, we are excited that the publisher plans to launch a web version of Kelley's Fourth Edition, which will feature quarterly updates.

B&N.com: In what area of the practice of internal medicine do you anticipate the most change over the next five to ten years?

HDH: Advances in the field of genetics will lead to improvements in gene therapy, disease diagnosis, cell therapy, and new drug discovery. Another important area is computational bioinformatics, especially the use of computers to look at multiple genes to correlate polygenic predispositions to various diseases. A person's genetic sequence could give the probabilities of that person developing various diseases and could provide preventive intervention strategies.

B&N.com: Since completing your work on Kelley's, do you have any new projects underway that you'd like to talk about?

HDH: The Academic Network for Clinical Research is a new academic site management organization for clinical trials. As chief executive officer, I will help to oversee its operations. I will also focus on my work in biotechnology -- specifically, the development of a bioartificial kidney.

B&N.com: Is there anything else you would like to talk about that is not covered in the above?

HDH: As a medical professional, I am very interested in the transformation of medical publishing in an Internet society. I am also concerned about the fiscal constraints imposed on academic medical centers by the competitive marketplace at a time of immense opportunity to translate basic scientific knowledge into new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for devastating diseases.

B&N.com: Do you have any books (besides the two mentioned above) that you would like to recommend, find particularly valuable, or that have impressed you recently? Please include any nonmedical titles you've enjoyed.

HDH: I'd like to recommend Principles of Tissue Engineering, Second Edition, Age of Access by Jeremy Rifkin, and Snow Falling on Cedars.
