    The dramatic and chilling story of an Ebola virus outbreak in a surburban Washington, D.C. laboratory, with descriptions of frightening historical epidemics of rare and lethal viruses. More hair-raising than anything Hollywood could think of, because it's all Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A true life horror story
    A really compelling read! I could not put this book down. Before I read 'The Hot Zone' I had never really taken much interest in virology. Richard Preston writes his account very effectively in the style of a novel, but the fact that the horrors of Marburg and Ebola that he describes are actually true, gave me many sleepless nights. A frightening aspect of these filoviruses is that their source has still not been found. If only all non-fictional books were as readable as this!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Truly terrifying from the start to the end
    I am someone who loves classics... so I never read this kind. But I happened to read it on my trip to east coast. I finished within 2 days. At first, I was scared, then i accept the truth... it became better. And it's so good from the start to end... So realistic, u can touch the grip of it... feel like it's happening around the corner.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Sub-par
    I've been wanting to read this novel for several years now.Taking Virology during my undergraduate career only peaked my interest in reading about Ebola in a novel-style context.There's not much known about the Ebola virus, even to this day, and I was intrigued to see how Preston would incorporate this knowledge (or lackthereof) into his book.While the subject matter is extremely interesting and engaging, I will have to agree that his writing style is sub-par.I found myself skimming through whole paragraphs because of his mundane and repetitive diction and syntax.If it had been written by someone else, I think I could have immensely enjoyed this book (I'm a major science nerd, and I love reading science books).The only thing that kept me going to the finish was the fact that the entire novel was riding on the subject matter Ebola itself.The virus was what kept the novel going (I actually enjoyed all the factual paragraphs about Ebola...reminded me of the course I took in college! Haha, that, and I like seeing how factually correct Preston was).Overall, it seems like most of his facts are correct (there are a few things that I would contest, but that's besides the point), but honestly, the book was a bore...which is a shame, because it's written on such a fascinating subject.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best ECG resource for med students
    This book is an absolute gem. It's corny in places and has a few minor errors (autonomic physiology section for example), but it breaks down the nuts and bolts of ECG like no other resource. Some consider the book to be too basic; however, for a medical student's purpose, I disagree. I was called on on several occasions in internal medicine morning report and conferences to read ECGs of patients being discussed. I used the systematic method proposed by Dubin, and was commended by Staff on each occasion. The book breaks interpretation down and gives an algorithm: rate, rhythm, axis, intervals and hypertrophy and ischemia/damage. It's easy to learn because the book is very repititious. In fact, the repititious nature of the text may be irritating if you already have a good handle of ECG. Unlike other textbooks, once you've meticulously worked through this one, the knowledge gained is very easy to retain. I attribute this to the redundant nature of the book, i.e. while working through, you're contantly reminded of pertinent concepts previously presented in the text. This is definitely a five star resource for med students.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best
    I purchased almost every book on the market pertaining to ECG's and this is perhaps the best you will find? It has great illustrations and explains heart function/anatomy very well. Covers every technical aspect to the subject of cardiology. However, many of the ECG strips could have been illustrated a lot bigger and more clearer. Some of the ECG strips are fuzzy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Unless your a cardiologist, stick with this book.
    This is truly an excellent book on an important subject.I read this book once as a medical student and once again as an intern.I cannot imagine another book being better at teaching EKG interpretation.Maybe there are some other good onces out there, but you cannot go wrong here.This was quite helpful from a residents perspective when taking care of medicine patients. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars a must read........
    this book is chock full of information on the realities of dealing with alzheimer's disease and other memory impairment disorders.it is clearly written and uses examples of real-time situations to highlight situations that can arise and suggestions on how to deal with them.highly recommend it for care providers and others in the lives of those with memory impairment disorders.required reading for adult children to gain an appreciation for the pressures on the care provider(s) for a parent.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The 36 Hour Day
    This is a really good book. I kept borrowing it from the library and kept getting fined for having it too long, so I thought I'd save myself time and trouble (and money, too) and buy it. I've come across alot of the same things that are mentioned in the book. This book is helpful to give the caregiver a different perspective on AD and it's nice to know that you're not alone in your struggles. It also reminds you that others have it worse than you do. I recommend this book for anyone who has elderly relatives, with the increased incidence of AD the chances are pretty good/bad that a relative will suffer from it. I think it's best to be prepared for the worst before it gets here. That way you'd have a start on what care would be required and how much you'll have to change your life to accomadate your aging relatives.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Every Caregiver Should Read This Book
    As the caregiver (daughter-in-law) of a 90 year old patient with dementia (vascular/multi-infact type), I found this book to be profoundly helpful in dealing with the day-to-day activities of caregiving.In short, I felt as if the authors had spent several weeks in our home and then written the book just for us!This is a MUST READ for any caregiver of a patient with Alzheimer's or other dementias. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The book you need
    As an infectious disease fellow, I recommend that anyone who want be an ID man should have such a book. Most infectious problems and diseases have been detailed in this book, although there are far going of emerging diseases and new antibiotics.5-0 out of 5 stars A good clinical microbiology text
    The two volume set is indeed a comprehensive reference work, but individual chapter can be read by themselves. I use this book on almost a daily basis, the only negative against it is that such a large book by its size can only be updated at intervals of a number of years so a folder in which to put your acculated journal articles next to it, until the next edition is advised as, infectious diseases is not a static field. Since there is a CD rom available now that may well be worth checking out. In closing for anybody involved in anything from clinical microbiology to a infectious disease specialist this book is a must.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Outsmart Your Cancer Reader Review
    Overall, I thought that the book presents a credible case for using alternative treatments for cancer although there are substantial areas where clarification is needed. The author, Tanya Harter Pierce, is not a doctor and states that the book is the result of extensive personal research carried out by herself after a family member was diagnosed with cancer.

    This little guide may seem confusing at first glance, but it is quite helpful once you figure out how to use it!You'll still need a prescribing reference for dosages, etc. but this gives you a place to start.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must on the wards
    Always a great help for any medical student or resident, especially in primary care. If you're going to be culturing something, you need to know what to treat empirically with until the C&S comes back, and that's where Sanford's is a great help. It's not quite an ID consult, but it works until they show up.

    Great quick pocket reference, use it daily for both out-pt and in-pt infectious disease treatment.Details first line therapy (and includes pediatric doses), and gives concise clinical criteria for back-up choices (eg. treatment failures, associated comorbidities, drug allergic patients).

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Supplement for Internal Med
    Case Files is well made and good at what it covers.The format is very readable, giving you a scenario and making you think of a diagnosis and plan.It's much better than skimming a heavy albeit more complete text.That said, while 60 case scenarios are a lot, it can't hit everything, and it's important to have a wide base of knowledge for the Internal Med Clerkship.I read this after reading First Aid for Internal Med a few times, and while I picked up a couple of things that I had little clue about, it mainly reinforced what was in that book.I would recommend Case Files for people who 1) like the scenario format and can't stand outlines/bullets/texts2) are close to taking the shelf exam and want an indication as to how questions might be constructed.MKSAP, however, is probably the closest to the exam you can get.Once again, this is a great supplement, but I would not use this as a primary / singular source.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic study aid
    I used this book and did quite well on the shelf exam.I recommend it to anyone who wants to do well on an internal medicine test.It's very complete and the cases allow you to integrate a lot of knowledge in one scenario.

    5-0 out of 5 stars echocardiography at its finest
    As a student echocardiographer learning the pathology of cardiovascular diseases, I have both this edition and one earlier. This is well worth the upgrade in price. It has 1 second loops of most of the many possible pathologies found in echocardiographic studies. Though I have looked at the clips several times, installation was initially a short-lived problem. This new edition is a complete overhaul as described by Feigenbaum. He admits that he is not the sole author but Armstrong and Ryan are the primarys on this edition. This book's attention to clinical detail makes it a must in my book when considering Echo books. Having a resource to give you a moving example of cardio pathology can only enhance one's understanding.

    5-0 out of 5 stars superb
    excellent clinically oriented, very well written and organized text book, supplemented with great clips on DVD. I found it very useful for exam preparation and in clinical practice

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great echo book but...
    When I was a young man, I read the last edition of this book and I fell in love with Cardiology.Every word in the last edition was memorized, just like a love letter.Now I am an old man, and I was delighted to see a new edition of this book finally published.I spent one weekend digesting every word.While I found the book highly delightful to read,I am finding factual errors in the book, to my disappointment.For example, in chapter 6, page 172, figure 6.51, deceleration time of mitral inflow was drawn incorrectly (it should start from the peak of the E wave, not from the beginning of the E).Then in chapter 16, page 513, the book stated that in dobutamine echo, a hypokinetic area that exhibits "sustained improvement" rather than "bipashic response" should be read as non-viable.But in echo literature (Heart. 2001 Dec;86(6):672-8 and Am J Cardiol. 1999 Jul 15;84(2):130-4), "sustained improvement" is considered viable.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Uh OK - Now What???
    Hmmmm he goes deep into the history of issues involving the mind, to the point of boredom.Then he goes deep into what types of physical disorders come from the mind having the issues.But then nothing.There is one and a half pages on what you might do in order to assist in resolving these issues.Come on, if this is truly meant to help people then give them something to work with instead of just recommending psychotherapy.I agree with the concept that child abuse/neglect can create hell for the rest of that person's life - but give specific ways to help in getting rid of the garbage instead of what was laid out in this book.He makes way too many references to purchase his other books throughout this book.Just another book thats "all about the money" and not truly about helping others!

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Breakthrough
    At the risk of sounding overly dramatic, I will simply say that as a type I diabetic the advice in this book has improved my condition immeasurably. After 8 months of following its low carbohydrate guidelines my A1C has dropped from 8.7 to an all-time low of 6.4 and my daily insulin dosage has decreased by almost 40% (both long-acting and fast-acting). I finally feel a measure of control over the disease and am slowly getting some respite from the constant frustration that unpredictable fluctuations in blood glucose measurements inevitably induce. I must add that I have not even been following the program very rigorously and have chosen to pass on some of its more drastic aspects (to me). I do admit that losing most of my carb-heavy comfort foods was difficult at first (and occasionally still is) but the payoff is really so staggering that I believe every diabetic should be exposed to this information as part of their healthcare education and shouldn't have to buy a book in order to obtain it.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Yes and No; Better for Type 2s
    Caveat Emptor. Removing all carbs from your diet to control blood sugar is like never leaving the house if you suffer from allergies. Following Dr. Bernstein's advice religiously without being in constant consultation with your personal MD is potentially very dangerous. Restricting ALL carbs the way he advises may help type 2 people who are overweight. Not for Type 1s who need carbs as much as we need insulin shots. I tried this type of diet and looked like a skeleton within a month. In a way us Type 1s have it easier, just more track marks, but removing all carbs and substituting them for these mysterious G/G crackers he praises can and will make you lose weight, give you more lows and create more problems. It may work for some, is probably very helpful for overweight type 2s, and a lot of the advice he does give is outstanding but please don't take it as the final word.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Book on Diabetes That I have Ever Read
    If you have diabetes, if you live with a diabetic, read this book.It's wonderfully clear in its explanations and arguments.Supplement it perhaps with the general writings of Dr. Andrew Weil on various foods, vitamins,and food preparation,but take a look at what Dr. Bernstein is saying about protein and carbs.This is a field where there is much disagreement, but I find this book to be convincing and extremely helpful.The best book on diabetes I've ever read. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Stellar Work
    The wave of cardiac CT is increasingly gaining momentum in the field of cardiology. It has the potential to revolutionize the traditional practice of cardiology particularly for the management of subclinical and clinical coronary artery disease patients. Cardiovascular professionals who do not wish to fall behind the curve are rushing to equip themseleves with the knowledge and the technology. In this book, Dr Budoff and colleagues most of whom I know from their outstanding research, give hands to the early adopters. The book provides an excellent state-of-the-art review on the subject. It also reviews related applications of cardiovascular MRI and nuclear imaging. I have found the CD companion of the book quite handy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Relief from chronic pain / EBV a bonus
    I bought this book in desperation as my chronic inflammatatory pain and the crippling exhaustion from chronic Epstein Barr have had me so dependent upon Tylenol and aspirin I feared for my liver and stomach. The first thing I did ( with my docs ok ) was drop my statin drug and start taking 6 gms of flax seed oil and 1 gm of evening primrose oil daily, along with changing my diet. I have to tell you it was the best thing I've done. My muscle and joint pain - previously so bad I worked part time for a bit - is 85% gone!! My knees, my biggest problems, are so good I can walk in the evenings with my husband, where before I was in physical therapy to get through the grocery store. I couldnt even take care of my grandson for a whole evening alone, and now Gramma can get on the floor and play !

    Another book offering limited help to those with asthma. As a sufferer for long enough until I learned about the Buteyko method. If you wish to take control of your condition, this is the only therapy that works and does it very well.
