Critique: "Appropriate to the intense proliferation of research and publications in the last few decades for this major health problem, the editors of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease have produced a comprehensive textbook that spans the basic and clinical science of COPD. This substantial tome includes 912 pages, 243 illustrations, and 70 chapters authored by an international cadre of contributors...

The succinct writing style, judicious use of complementary illustrations, and well?focused references achieve the desired breadth without compromising sufficient depth or readability...

Section 3 focuses on cellular physiology and inflammation. This section exemplifies the strength of this textbook, digesting a large body of developing science into comprehensible synopses of the disease processes that form the basis for therapeutic opportunities...

In summary, the editors and authors of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease have achieved their goal by creating a current textbook covering many facets of this complex disorder. In parallel with the field of COPD, the textbook has its strength in the scientific underpinnings of airway and lung physiology and advances in the understanding of cellular and physiological derangements." ? Richard A. Mularski (MD, MSHS, MRC), JAMA, September 2007

The strength of the book lies in the more than 100 authors recognized worldwide. Most of the chapters are excellent reviews and are carefully referenced.

Mularski for John L. Zeller, MD, PhD, Fishbein Fellow Books and Media Reviews Section Editor, JAMA

This book does an outstanding job of outlining the major aspects of COPD. Topics are organized logically and each chapter has ample references highlighting important concepts."
Doodys Reviews



"The authorship can fairly be called stellar ? the best minds of their generation in pulmonary medicine."  ( Lancet, September 2007)
