The problem-oriented medical record is an elegantly simple concept. Texts by Weed and by Cross and Bjorn said it all in 1969 and 1970, and anyone who missed these has had numerous opportunities to grasp the idea in journal articles. Some clinicians use it and some don't, but the ultimate fate of the POMR will not be decided by publishing more books about it. The two texts reviewed here will do the cause of the POMR no good and possibly some harm. One belabors the obvious, and the other obscures it.
