About a dozen years ago, we heard the call to practice medicine on the basis of credible evidence. McMaster University clinicians Gordon Guyatt, David Sackett, and colleagues began to etch evidence-based medicine's (EBM's) triple tenets of finding, evaluating, and applying explicit evidence in clinical practice. They drummed their message gently and periodically in a series of publications in JAMA with timely assistance from editor Drummond Rennie. As a result, "EBM" as a term has come of age, having gained MeSH (National Library of Medicine Medical Subject Headings) entry and general acceptance in clinical vocabulary. There are several excellent books on this topic; THE JOURNAL has reviewed some of them recently.1,2 Now, Guyatt, Rennie, and more than 60 contributors have brought forth two more books on EBM, one an Essentials, the other a Manual. Is there a need for more volumes in the growing field of EBM?
