From our regular book review column.

The first edition of this work, published in 1990, was extremely helpful to me as a clinical reference and an aid for teaching residents. Because it was not a compilation of chapters by different authors, it had a coherence and efficiency that I especially appreciated. I also appreciated the attention paid to issues like treatment compliance (now termed adherence). I continued to use it well into this century, simply because there was nothing else like it. But, for years, I wished for a new edition.
