Review quote

From the reviews: "This text focuses on the science of lipidology and the management of lipid disorders. Therapeutic Lipidology is intended for practicing clinicians who manage patients with dyslipidemias. ... The book is well written ... and geared toward advanced-level practitioners. ... Overall, the material is very up-to-date and timely. ... This is an excellent text for clinicians desiring a current reference on lipid metabolism and the pathophysiology of lipid disorders. ... Academic medical centers should also consider purchase of this text for this same reason." (James J Nawarskas, The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, Vol. 42, September, 2008)show more
