Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David L. Reid, PhD (Rush University)
Description: This book is a concise review of clinical biochemistry including a brief description of the pathophysiology and proper test utilization. The expanded use of case studies in this edition is a valuable tool for the reader.
Purpose: The authors' three objectives are to understand the value and limitations of chemical investigations, and ensure their reliable performance and interpretation; use the appropriate chemical test to aid in the diagnosis and management of patients and; develop a responsible and critical attitude when using clinical laboratory services. These are worthwhile objectives that are met.
Audience: This book is intended for medical students in the clinical phase, as well as junior physicians. In fact, the targeted audience is appropriate for the level of complexity presented. The authors are undoubtedly experts in the field of clinical biochemistry, as proven by the content of the book and the professional titles they hold.
Features: Most of the pertinent areas of clinical biochemistry, the relevant pathophysiology, and the accompanying analytical tests are covered in this book. The use of case studies as a tool to further illustrate a concept in each chapter is important for the education of students in medicine. Appendix C should be expanded.
Assessment: I have not seen previous editions of this book, therefore a comparison can not be performed. However, I found this book easy to read. The authors provide a succinct presentation of a complex topic. It should be well received by medical students and useful to the newly qualified physician. Unfortunately, the authors fail to cover the topic of clinical biochemistry in the necessary depth for a clinical biochemist. I highly recommend this book for the intended audience.
