Doody's Review Service Reviewer: Vincent F. Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences) **Description** This is the eighth edition of a comprehensive book for family physicians, particularly those preparing for their certification examinations. The previous edition was published in 2007. **Purpose** It is designed to cover the topics frequently encountered in the clinical practice of family medicine. All of the contributors are family physicians. **Features** It covers all the concepts of family medicine very well, from the opening chapters that define what family physicians are and their role in the health of the entire family by describing the concept of the patient-centered medical home, preventative care, care of the elderly and dying patient, and understanding and applying evidence-based medicine. The book is then broken into common diagnoses with chapters on infectious diseases, pulmonary medicine, etc. There are extensive tables, key points, and full-color figures. There is an access key to a full-text web-based version that is very easy to navigate with excellent graphics. As noted in the book, the reference list is on the website, not in the print version. *Assessment** This is an extremely well-written, well-produced book and a necessary addition to one's personal professional library. Weighted Numerical Score: 100 - 5 Stars!
