MRI in Practice
When I was training at the University of Pennsylvania this book was known as our "Bible". In short, it comprehensivly covers MRI from Atoms to Zipper artifacts. The book can be a little technical at times but unfortunatly, that's MRI for you. It does a great job at explaining the basic concepts of MRI and then building on those ideas to explain the more complex ones (K-Space headaches anyone?). A ...

The Merck Manual of Medical Information: Home Edition (Spanish Version)
Mark H. Beers
Ardrew J. Fletcher
Merck Publishing Group
This book is cheaper [on] AMAZON than the one I bought at my warehouse club. I'd buy it for twice list price if I did not already have a copy. The text is marvelously complete, yet devoid of fluff and fillers despite its 1500+ pages. The illustrations are very helpful, as is its exhaustive index. If I have a medical problem in the house, this is what I grab first, even before logging onto the ...

He suspected MS and referred me to another neurologist who tested me for GBS. I ...
Surviving the Cancer System: An Empowering Guide to Taking Control of Your Care
Mark Fesen M.D. F.A.C.P.
Excellent material on the subject, all in one place.
As a program development director for a hospice organization, I was especially grateful for Dr. Fesen's comprehensive overview of the cancer system. His work gives ready access to professionals who work with patients and need a wide-angle lens on the subject. Despite my 25 years as a pastor, my work as a hospice chaplain, and my work as a program development director, much of what Dr. Fesen ...
The Narcissistic Family: Diagnosis and Treatment
Robert M. Pressman
Best book on the topic
The Narcissistic Family is a family-based diagnostic and treatment approach based on both family and psychoanalytic perspectives on (pathological) narcissism. I loved the book, for both personal and professional use. The reader senses from the examples that these are expert therapists who treat some of the most difficult problems around. They give an amplified description of the Narcissus ...

Addressed the hard questions no one else could anwer for me...
When faced with a trauma in my life, I began to read prolifically on the topic of pain and suffering.

This has been the most satisfying and comforting book I've read on suffering and what it means to believe in a loving, sovereign and wise God through it all. I tell ...

Theodore C. Friedman
The BEST Thyroid book around
Having thyroid problems for over 16 years and having read every book ever published on thyroid disease, I wasn't sure what to expect from this book.

Not only was it an easy read (finished it in one sitting), it was full of useful information from both a clinical doctor and reseach doctor's point of view (Dr. Friedman is both). ...

I felt such a connection to the content in this book that I went on Barbara Probst's website to attend one of her workshops.

Lisa P. Gwyther M.S.W.
St. Martin's Press
Alzheimer Plan of Action
This is an excellent book for anyone who wants to understand Alzheimer's disease. Every caregiver should try to read it. Although the subject is difficult, the book was written to be easily read. I have a family member with dementia, from Post Pump Syndrome, after having open heart surgery, and this explained a lot of questions I had.

Should I Be Tested for Cancer?: Maybe Not and Here's Why
H. Gilbert Welch M.D. M.P.H.
University of California Press
A Real Eye Opener!
This book is truly an eye opener. Millions of people are being screened for cancer every year, but is it really necessary? Is it really making a difference? Are people harmed by these tests in anyway? Dr. Welch explains brilliantly, in my opinion, what these cancer screenings really mean. He argues that we are taking healthy symptom-free individuals and looking for cancer. What most people ...
Clinical Dermatology: A Color Guide to Diagnosis and Therapy
Thomas P. Habif
Cheaper than a consult, and faster to get to!
I'm a family practice doc in Alabama. It takes 6 months to get a dermatology appointment here. With this book and my general/plastic surgeon, I can treat 95% of skin lesions myself. The pictures make it easy to show to doubting patients that I know what their rash is, and the treatment plans, medications, and algorithims are state of the art. I consider myself a pretty fair amateur ...
12-Lead Ecg: The Art of Interpretation
Tomas B. Garcia
Jones & Bartlett Publishers
recommend this book
very good explanation of normal waveforms and the rationale behind abnormal waveforms. Like the format of more basic information presented separately from more complex information that may be reviewed concurrently or after learning the basics first.
