Reviewer Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT, from William Beaumont Hospitals writes that it's "still jam-packed with concise but well-written information." In addition, this "excellent book," he continues, "would be a valued asset in any program requiring a short course in physiology," and a "terrific resource for public and college/university libraries as well."
The text, a consolidated and modified version of the hugely successful An Introduction to Human Disease, Ninth Edition, is designed for students who have limited time to master basic disease concepts.

"Each chapter begins with learning objectives followed by a brief review of anatomy and physiology of the organ system. The book provides a systematic survey of the pathology, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and principles of treatment of specific diseases. Key terms are bolded and numerous images, tables, illustrations, and case studies illustrate the text. Each chapter ends with a chapter review, questions for review, supplemental reading (references), and interactive activities. This edition contains updates on ultrasound, HIV, the latest data and statistics, and includes new information on renal transplantation and BMI data from the USDA. The book also features an online companion.
This is an excellent book, with an appealing layout and easy-to-read format. [It] would be a valued asset in any program requiring a short course in physiology, and would be a terrific resource for public and college/university libraries as well. With the sad and recent passing of Dr. Crowley, it is hoped that new authors will continue with future editions of this excellent book."
