The Metabolic and Molecular Bases of Inherited Disease, 4 volume set

Hardcover
·
 
From the New England Journal of Medicine, November 15, 2001
The first impression this book makes is one of hugeness: it is huge in size, huge in scope, and huge in vision. This set of volumes, which weighs in at 16 kg (35 lb) and is too large to carry to one's car without advance planning, is no vade mecum. In the preface to this edition, there is mention of an informal survey of owners of the seventh edition, of whom 70 percent used the book at least weekly. This book has become indispensable to those in the field, as well as to a much broader audience. Does this edition build on the achievements of the previous seven? The first edition, then titled The Metabolic Basis of Inherited Disease, was designed to give clinicians and scientists a foundation in a field that seemed at last to be occupying an important place in medicine....

Genetic Skin Disorders
Virginia P. Sybert
0195062183
Jan 1997
Hardcover
·
 
From The New England Journal of Medicine, February 12, 1998
Dermatologists love to argue about disease taxonomy, and their efforts to define diseases over the past two centuries have relied primarily on phenotypes observable with the naked eye. That organ of detection can recognize distinctions that are more subtle than those recognized by means of the stethoscope, the x-ray, or the Petri dish -- hence, the number of recognized skin diseases is enormous. Since so many of these abnormalities "run in families," it is not surprising that diseases of the skin have been a rich lode that has not escaped the recent attention of the molecular-genetics miners. It is thus a bit surprising that until recently, the clinical focus of these interests has been summarized primarily by Butterworth and Strean's slender 1962 textbook, Clinical...

In the midst of a worldwide epidemic of autism, ADD, and ADHD, this book is a message of hope to parents embarking on the challenging journey of finding proper medical care for their Autism Spectrum Disorder children.

This is the first book written by an experienced clinician that gives a step-by-step treatment guide for parents and doctors based on the understanding that ASD is a complex biomedical illness resulting in significant brain malnutrition. Dr. McCandless, whose grandchild with autism has inspired her "broad spectrum approach," describes important diagnostic tools needed to select appropriate...

Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and The Artistic Temperament
Kay Redfield Jamison
068483183X
January 1996
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The march of science in explaining human nature continues. In Touched With Fire, Jamison marshals a tremendous amount of evidence for the proposition that most artistic geniuses were (and are) manic depressives. This is a book of interest to scientists, psychologists, and artists struggling with the age-old question of whether psychological suffering is an essential component of artistic creativity. Anyone reading this book closely will be forced to conclude that it is. Very Highly Recommended. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly
Drawing from the lives of artists such as Van Gogh, Byron and Virginia Woolf, Jamison examines the links between manic-depression and creativity. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Book Review
If you think you've got it tough, meet Christopher Snow, the hero of Dean Koontz's novel Fear Nothing. Not only did his parents die under mysterious circumstances, but he's also being stalked by shadowy characters who want Snow to stop trying to find out how they died--or else they'll bump off his remaining loved ones (his supersmart, beer-lapping dog Orson; his best surfing buddy Bobby; and his late-night deejay girlfriend Sasha). And as if being on the lam in his own hometown, Moonlight Bay, California, isn't bad enough, Snow has to outrun his pursuers without leaving town. He has XP--xeroderma pigmentosum--a rare genetic affliction that forces him to avoid light. Cumulative exposure to sun, fluorescent lights, and the like will give him cancer eventually, and he doesn't dare leave the place where he's skillfully...

Management of Genetic Syndromes

November 25, 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From the New England Journal of Medicine, August 9, 2001
This book is a trove of valuable clinical information on 30 of the most common genetic syndromes. The editors state that the book is intended as a resource for primary care physicians, medical specialists, and other physicians, most of whom are not geneticists. Although few nongeneticists are likely to have enough patients with these conditions to justify purchasing the book, it should certainly be on the shelf of every clinical geneticist and in the library of every pediatric tertiary care facility. Copies of individual chapters will probably find their way into many consultation letters. The book has been edited by two widely respected clinical geneticists and written by clinicians who have extensive experience with each of the conditions. It is a treat to read what Robert...
