About this title


Book by Columbia University

From Library Journal:

The most impressive effort yet in educating the public about health and disease, the Complete Home Medical Guide is not only comprehensive but is very interesting reading. A team of more than 50 physician specialists contributed to this self-help guide. It contains an overview of today's medicine and answers many questions about the American health care system. Each of the book's eight parts is devoted to a facet of medicine and health. Each organ system and its function is described in depth, with excellent illustrations. Technological advances of recent decades are summarized and reviewed in terms of ethics, cost, and side effects. Diagnostic procedures are explained in layman's terms and a personal family medical record system is introduced. Compares favorably with the American Medical Association Family Medical Guide ( LJ 11/15/82) and with Kurt Butler and Lynn Rayner's The Best Medicine ( LJ 9/1/85). Well worth the price for home and library reference collections. Shirley Branden, Univ. of Florida Health Ctr. Lib., Gainesville
