Editorial Reviews

Seymour G. Williams
The fifth edition of Professional Guide to Diseases (PGD) is a contemporary and concise encyclopedic reference of illnesses, disorders, injuries, and their treatments. PGD sets out to describe over 600 diseases in a standard format: causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and special considerations. This is an ambitious objective and is largely accomplished in this compact volume of 1,330 pages. This book is aimed at students and practitioners in the health professions. This book will be very useful to anyone, especially in nursing, pharmacy, medicine, etc., seeking a quick summary on a particular disease state. The various contributors and consultants are physicians and nurses with additional qualifications. Sufficient numbers of pictures, charts, and tables are included in the book to illustrate, classify, and clarify the various diseases. References at the end of each chapter allow the reader opportunity to pursue further information. The tables in this book are excellent summaries of large quantities of information. This is a useful book for health professionals, both students and practitioners, and for anyone seeking a concise and rapid access reference of medical diseases. The book summarizes large quantities of information in a standard format that points to the important elements of the disease. This book will best serve as a semiportable, rapid access reference about medical diseases.
