Reviews

  • "This update of a book that broadly addresses all aspects of pulmonary disease is significantly revised from the 2005 edition and includes access to an online version. It attempts to gather the observations of authorities from diverse experience, providing a comprehensive review of the current state of the art in pulmonology.It would be fair to call this "the" reference in pulmonary medicine. I would consider it an essential resource to add to my personal library." - Joel C Seidman, MD(William Beaumont Hospitals), Excerpts from Doody’s review service, Rating - 4 Stars!
