Book Review: Dr. Melissa Palmer's Guide To Hepatitis Liver Disease

Penguin Putnam, NY, 2000, pb. 457 pages

Review by Phyllis Beck

A big thumbs up for Dr. Melissa Palmer's Guide to Hepatitis Liver Disease . The book's information is up-to-date, it is fully indexed, it includes a 25-page bibliography, and it covers a wide range of hepatitis and liver disease related topics.

Dr. Palmer's book is written in an easy to read style and its information is understandable by lay people and professionals alike. The book can help the reader to understand the state of their health from medical reports, and evaluate the treatment they are receiving or might need.

As director of the National Hepatitis C Prison Coalition I am constantly dealing with hepatitis related issues, and I am able to quickly find the answer to most questions in Dr. Palmer's book.

The book is a must read for anyone who wants to learn more about hepatitis and liver disease, and it is a valuable addition to the literature available about those diseases. I give an unqualified recommendation to Dr. Palmer's book and Penguin Putnam is to be commended for bringing it out in a low cost paperback edition.
