Editorial Reviews

Daniel O. Hryhorczuk
This new book greatly expands the authors' earlier book on clinical occupational medicine, which has been one of the most popular textbooks in the field. The book is intended to serve as a comprehensive textbook for students and trainees and as a reference text for clinicians who wish to integrate occupational and environmental medicine into their clinical practice. The book includes sections on principles and practice; core disciplines; evaluation and treatment; and hazards in the workplace and the environment. The target audience is intentionally broad and spans vertically from students to practitioners and horizontally across multiple specialties. The authors are two of the leading national authorities in the field, and the contributors are equally impressive. This textbook includes numerous useful tables and illustrations. The content is current and well referenced. This textbook is an outstanding resource for both students and practitioners and will have broad appeal across specialties. It is destined to become one of the premier clinical references in the field and is a definite must-have for reference centers.
