Twenty authoritative reviews that cover a wide range of important clinical problems. Several merit particular attention by clinicians: the relations of prostaglandins and aspirin effects (Moncada and Vane); adverse effects of several kinds of therapy (oral contraceptives, Durand and Bressler; cancer treatment, Harrington; digitalis, Doherty; drug abuse, Becker); treatment of some major problems (venereal disease, Sparling; respiratory insufficiency, Mariencheck). The main fault of this collection is that reviews likely to be obsolete 5 years from now are published in a too long-lived and too costly format.
