The rapid increase in medical knowledge has led to the growth of specialization. In the midst of an intimidating array of specialty textbooks and journals, it is refreshing to read a well-written book on rheumatology, oriented to the generalist's point of view. The British authors are rheumatologists with experience in general internal medicine.
The reviews of the major diseases are concise and are well illustrated. The frequent use of bold print to list presenting symptoms, appropriate diagnostic studies, differential diagnoses, and treatment options facilitates rapid review. The best two sections are those on rheumatology in general medicine and general diagnosis.
