There is every reason to applaud this new book, which fills a void in the literature of rheumatology. Many rheumatic conditions affect only synovial structures including bursae, tendon sheaths, and musculotendinous structures. This book is a compendium of nonarticular rheumatic disorders. Soft tissue rheumatism has been described as the "great outback of rheumatology, a vast frontier land, ill-defined and little explored. . . .", yet painful back problems, shoulder disorders, and fibrositis crowd the physician's office schedule. Furthermore these disorders are one of the leading causes of time lost from work, and a major reason for disability payments.
