Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Home Page -- "Health sciences libraries have referred library users to this useful reference tool for years... Comparison of random entries in the third and fourth editions highlight the revisions present in the new work, including deleted and new entries, and upgraded bibliographies. Libraries and professionals working in the genetic and genetic counseling fields should consider how difficult it would be to answer questions without the availability of this reference gem." --Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Home Page
