REVIEWS OF THE LAST EDITION: "Without a doubt, this text is a must for serious students of pulmonary medicine, whether in training, academic tenure, or mature clinical practice." - JAMA REVIEW OF 4th EDITION: "It goes without saying that this is a thorough, in-depth review of chest medicine and as far as I could see, leaves nothing out. I was pleased to see this is a book for active physicians rather than researchers or scientists. It is aimed squarely at the specialists, but generalists such as GPs or specialists in other but related disciplines would also find this book a good reference source. I also liked the principal that associated non-respiratory problems are covered in detail. Take for example Sarcoidosis, which has always been classified as a chest disease, but is also a multi-system disease. The chapter on Sarcoidosis is an excellent review of the whole topic and not just the pulmonary aspects. In addition, there are excellent chapters on issues that you don't always find such as air pollution, high altitude and diving medicine. Importantly the book is readable and relevant to physicians and adopts a well-rounded approach to informing the doctor what he or she needs to know. The depth of detail achieved is just right, and this book has an encyclopaedic feel to it. There are plenty of illustrations in the book but in the main, this is primarily a text-based reference source."
