The concept is appealing. Do you want to know how to treat conjunctivitis or cholecystitis? How about pericarditis or parvovirus? Open this reference book and quickly scan its pages for the nitty-gritty on any of more than 200 topics pertaining to infectious diseases. Find the information presented in a telegraphic, bullet-punctuated style with focused text, clean graphics, and eye-pleasing font, mostly devoid of tables and illustrations. Such is the formula for the patented "5-minute consult" that the publisher, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, has now extended to nearly a dozen titles.
