an excellent 2-volume series ... I would highly recommend this book for rheumatology residents ... and practicing rheumatologists ... given its thorough yet succinct delivery of many topics
As a highly specialised text it ticks every box, and the editors should be commendedIt is a tour de force in terms of knowledge and effort. This edition will retain a wide appeal among all those studying rheumatology. In addition, its high standing reputation for unambiguous advice will continue to make this textbook the reference of choice for practicing rheumatologists.
