Norman Kaplan's seventh edition of Clinical Hypertension continues a long-standing tradition of excellence established by six previous editions. The concise style, synthetic analysis, and erudition remain with an impressive addition of new and significant information.

It is common knowledge that the single-author text is a thing of the past. The continual proliferation of medical knowledge requires multiauthored books. Therefore, the successful accomplishment of this edition is a tribute to the original author's endurance and erudition. On the other hand, to avoid repetition and extended discussions, the author frequently sends the reader to other chapters, which some readers might find cumbersome.
