MEDIA REVIEWS
[Review of previous edition: ] Why another book on IBD you might ask? Well this book has raised the bar in the field of medical information for the general public. The approach taken by Dr. Hillary Steinhart in this book Crohn's and Colitis, results in a clear discussion of an illness that at times seems confusing and that may even be overwhelming for patients and their families. He has set the standard to which other authors should strive; not only in the area of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but also in all books that intend to educate the public about medical conditions.... This is an excellent overview of IBD that is written in a style that is easy to understand, yet contains enough detail that it could function as an introduction to the subject for medical students and many other health care professionals.... Would I recommend this [book] to my patients? I would do so absolutely and without reservation.--Ford Bursey, MD, FRCPC, FACP, Associate Professor "Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada "
[Review of previous edition: ] An informative and comprehensive read... The book is written with an uncomplicated, easy to understand style, and with a factual and positive tone.... Many of the questions and answers raised are important to the personal lives of the reader, such as intimacy and social aspects.... The book is written for the lay reader and explains all technical and medical terms carefully.... This informative and optimistic book is a must have for anyone suffering or caring for a person with Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis.-- (03/01/2012)
