The first portion is devoted to a detailed discussion of aspects of obesity. Various authors discuss metabolism, genetics, psychiatric implications, dietary and drug treatment, childhood obesity, management of cardiopulmonary diseases in obesity, and the treatment of the obese diabetic patient. Most contributors are Canadian; discussions are comprehensive and generally well done. The treatment of burns comprises the second section. Current discussions bracketing all aspects of burn management include comments on silver sulfadiazine, which may prove the successor to sulfamylon and silver nitrate. This book compares favorably with the most recent books on burn management.
