The important and thoroughly rationalized recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force have been widely disseminated in many vehicles, but every physician (and indirectly all of their patients) will benefit from having at hand this compilation of the analytic papers that are the basis for the recommendations. The chapters open with the specific recommendation and close with details on specific interventions; the intervening text presents and analyzes the evidence for the recommendations. The scope includes screening for major diseases and disorders, counseling for good health practices and prophylaxis, immunization, and chemoprophylaxis. Heavily referenced. Seven accompanying tables on plastic-covered cards
