The growth and direction of any medical specialty is often shaped by the caliber of literature produced by its faithful. Research developments, patient care innovations, and emerging trends in health care policy must be optimally updated in new editions of existing textbooks, if the medical masses are to remain informed and the field is to prosper. The recently launched second edition of Rehabilitation Medicine: Principles and Practice, by Joel A. DeLisa, MD, and Bruce M. Gans, MD, splendidly lives up to this standard.

Following a tradition established by competing rehabilitation volumes, this tome is mostly organized by topic and diagnosis. Composed of 56 chapters in its entirety, Rehabilitation Medicine is deftly divided into four components: general principles of diagnosis and evaluation, management methods, major rehabilitation problems, and rehabilitation of specific disorders. A formidable panel of 124 contributors has been assembled from university faculty representing academic institutions throughout the United States.
