Book Description
Articulation disorder, the most common speech communication problem, is identified in approximately 1 million preschool children each year. Research suggests that problems with articulation, if left unchecked, can lead to reading and spelling difficulties, social challenges, and self-esteem problems. The strongest resource a child with an articulation problem can have is a well-informed parent who knows which articulation behaviors are normal, which are not, and how best to guide his or her child through the process of speech therapy. This book helps parents decide whether the sound errors their child is experiencing are developmental and within normal limits for their age. The book offers a range of strategies to employ when a child does need some extra help to work through a particular speech difficulty. The book...

Review
I would strongly recommended this review to medical students both at all stages of their undergraduate training, but particularly in the run-up to finals, and to trainee pathologists intending to sit the new style part 1 exam. This book is exceptionally good value, and will surely earn a valued place alongside its parent Robbins on every pathology student's bookshelf.

Review
It is hard to imagine a pathologist, whether a trainee or consultant, who would not benefit from reading or at least referring to this book. Most older pathologists will possess earlier editions as Robbins has been a standard text for many years. This seventh edition represents the evolution of the best single volume textbook on general pathology and the editors are to be congratulated in having resisted the temptation to overturn the book's familiar order in the name of innovation. Instead, they have sympathetically expanded the text, which now includes a phenomenal amount of information. A particularly welcome development is the chapter on ocular pathology for the generalist and the reorganisation of the chapter on infectious diseases taxonomically. The book has a very broard appeal: it could be read with profit by...

From The New England Journal of Medicine, May 18, 2000
"Medicines," wrote Leonardo da Vinci, "will be well used when the doctor understands their nature, what man is, what life is, and what constitution and health are. Know these well and you will know their opposites; you will then know well how to devise a remedy." As the coauthor of a textbook on clinical pharmacology and drug therapy for medical students, in which this principle is espoused, I applaud any attempt by others to do likewise. That is indeed the basis for this textbook on drug therapy for clinical pharmacists. An introductory section on some of the basic principles of clinical pharmacology is followed by 16 sections on the management of diseases, organized according to systems of the body. In each of the chapters dealing with individual diseases, the authors first...

Pathologies of Power
Paul Farmer
0520243269
Nov 2004
Paperback
·
 
From the New England Journal of Medicine, February 12, 2004
There are many kinds of gifted physicians: clinicians, researchers, and those who build institutions. Paul Farmer is the rarest of all: a prophet. Pathologies of Power is a jeremiad on how the "structural violence" of denied opportunities, economic deprivation, violent despots (and the powers supporting them), and international financial organizations harm the health of billions of people who are so distant that they are glibly and uncomprehendingly referred to as living in a "third world." This summary does not do justice to the richness of the book. Farmer deftly weaves personal stories from his work with the dispossessed, careful academic notes, and well-chosen quotations from intellectuals, poets, and proponents of liberation theology. These citations introduce marvelous...

Book Description
Insight into an ailment that impairs more than sixty million in the world population.

From the Publisher
According to the definition of stuttering—speech that does not follow normal, conventional rhythm—we all stutter when we are angry, confused, or when we are speaking too fast. In his new book Understanding Stuttering (University Press of Mississippi) Dr. Nathan Lavid says, "The first step in understanding stuttering is to differentiate the occasional stuttering we all experience from the medical condition of stuttering." Stuttering is an affliction that affects every ethnicity and every culture equally, some sixty million people worldwide. Five percent of children stutter. Typically this debilitating disorder emerges when a child is between the ages of two and...
