This excellent home health book presents authoritative, current medical information for each family member from newborn to elderly. The editors have arranged the material in five broad divisions: lifecycles, the world around us, keeping fit, human disease and disorders, and modern medical care. Within these divisions, topics are well organized and indexed. The Mayo Clinic contributors describe the body's structure and functions, advise how to remain healthy, and answer questions about diagnosis and therapy. "The book is not intended to teach you to perform independent self-diagnosis," they warn. "However, you can use it to help you better understand your body and mind and to help you become a more active partner in your health care." More up to date than the American Medical Association Family Medical Guide ( LJ 11/15/82), it should share the shelf--as a second opinion--with the equally prestigious Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons Complete Home Medical Guide (Crown, 1989. rev. ed.). Highly recommended. BOMC main selection.
