'Easy to use, and useful when kept close at hand in the room where you work. The book is a pleasure to read: the style elegant and authoritative.' Lancet
'...this book is a wonderful reference to enable primary physicians to be informed about their patients.' Annals of Internal Medicine

Universally used across the world by genetic counsellors, medical geneticists and clinicians alike, Practical Genetic Counselling has established itself as the essential guide to counselling those at risk from inherited disorders.

Increasingly, common disorders are known to have a genetic component and this book provides invaluable and up to date guidance through the profusion of new information in this area and the associated psychosocial and ethical considerations and concerns.

Within its established, tried and trusted framework, the book contains updated information on: developments in common disease genetics, new molecular techniques and genetic counselling, non invasive prenatal diagnosis, the molecular basis of congenital malformations, the history of genetic counselling and the social and ethical aspects of advances in genetics.

Key features:
- Fully updated to provide the very latest information when in a busy consulting room or clinic
- Clear and authoritative advice applicable to everyday clinical practice
- Reflects the rapid development of knowledge in this area, including the implications of the human genome project and related technology

The seventh edition of this popular, best selling text will continue to be an essential source of reference for trainee and practitioner genetic counsellors, medical geneticists and clinicians. It will provide also valuable background for specialist nurses, counsellors, social scientists, ethicists as well as genetics laboratory staff.

Institute of Medical Genetics, Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK

Review:

Written for general clinicians, be they general practitioners, phsyicians, surgeons or obstetricians. It does not use arcane genetic terms, and previous editions have been of great value to many of my non-specialist colleagues over the years. I highly recommend this book to every practitioner who is now facing clinical problems related to genetic disease. The reader will find many ready answers here, as well as an excellent approach to managing individual families' needs in genetic counselling.
Irish Journal of Medical Science

As I opened the package containing this book my colleague's eyes opened wide with envy. This was my introduction to Professor Peter Harper's gem on genetic counselling, and I soon came to appreciate my good fortune... Peter Harper's book provides the non-specialist with the basics of that knowledge and is a pleasure to read. I strongly recommend it to all involved in reproductive medicine and paediatrics. It contains useful information for many specialties and possibly most of all for general practice, where the widest range of conditions is encountered.
Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine
