Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0789444127, Hardcover)The American College of Physicians Complete Home Medical Guide may be the biggest health book you've ever lifted--page count: 1100; page size: 10 by 7.5 inches. The emphasis here is on disease. More than 600 pages are devoted to more than 700 different diseases and disorders. Each article discusses the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment options, and prognosis of the condition. Two thousand full-color illustrations let you see disease symptoms up close, understand the anatomy, and view treatments. Online resources are also given for additional and updated information--though the light-blue type of the URLs can make them difficult to read and type.
Besides disease information, you'll appreciate the 70 symptom charts--find your symptom (lump, wheezing, impaired vision, abdominal pain, for example) and follow the flow chart, which pins down specifics and makes suggestions. You can also learn first aid and read about drugs, surgery, and rehabilitation.
