About the Author:

Ernest L. Abel teaches at Wayne State University, where he has received the honor of "Distinguished Professor." He is also the author of more than forty other books and his articles have been published in various popular and scholarly magazines and journals.

From Library Journal:

Geared to consumers, this superb guide clearly answers questions about genetic diseases common to the Jewish people. The outstanding writing and well-organized text combine to make difficult material accessible to a broad audience. Arranged in three sections, the book begins with an overview of the basics of genetics and genetic disease, followed by a chapter on how and why some diseases occur more often among the Ashkenazi, Sephardi, and Oriental Jewish populations. The largest section comprises a wealth of information about the specific genetic diseases, arranged by body system (e.g., gastrointestinal, central nervous system diseases), and the cancers. Additionally, a helpful glossary, a list of screening centers, and suggestions for further reading are provided. Abel (obstetrics/gynecology,Wayne State Univ.) shows great skill in weaving together sometimes heartbreaking facts with a gentle hand. Because of its well-written, current, and comprehensive coverage, this title would be exceptional even if there were tons of books on this topic (which there aren't). A first-choice selection for all consumer health and larger public library collections. Gail Hendler, NYU Medical Ctr. Lib., New York
