This edition integrates self-test questions, illustrations, and detailed explanations, as well as provides new material on sleep disordered breathing, the newer methods of staging of lung cancer, interstitial lung diseases, and infections.
Challenging cases with good clinical data is always an excellent exercise for clinicians practicing in pulmonary and critical care. This book also is an excellent resource for trainees. The image quality is superb, the case presentations are precise, and discussion of the topics is to the point. (4 stars)

…the questions in this book cover many diverse areas of respiratory medicine… the strength of this book is the format, which makes it interesting to clinicians and highlights the clinical approach to a patient… helps aid education… relevant and interesting… will appeal to a wide readership, ranging from senior medical students, to trainees in internal medicine, and to pulmonologists in training and practice.
