Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is a general internal medicine textbook based upon the illustrations of Frank H. Netter, MD, updated with those of Carlos A.G. Machado, MD, and John A. Craig, MD, with text provided by numerous excellent contributors. As one would expect, the artwork is incredibly well done. The previous edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: The editors' goal was to bring the ever-increasing amount of medical information to clinicians in a concise and highly visual format. They have presented a superb book that accomplishes their goal. A number of new chapters, such as those presenting an overview of preventive medicine and discussing improving outcomes and patient safety, add significant dimensions to the book.
Audience: The stated audience includes the clinician population, everyone who cares for patients. But that understates the strength of the book, which is the added benefit for those who learn more easily through visual effects and graphics. This is an extremely valuable resource for those students. The contributors are from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, all recognized clinical authorities.
Features: The chapters are organized into introduction, etiologies, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, management and therapy, and additional resources sections. Usually there is an evidence section that outlines the accepted literature upon which the major guidelines are based.
Assessment: This is an extremely useful book, with the major strengths being the illustrations and evidence sections. Because of these, the book is a very worthwhile addition to a medical library, particularly in teaching institutions.
