This whole series of books is garbage. The information in the books is copied verbatim from health sites anyone can get for FREE on the internet. If you think it is bad when college students cut and paste information into their term papers, what do you think of cutting and pasting an entire book from the internet and then charging people a lot of money for it? I think it is a scam and the M.D. and Ph.D. who put their names on the cover should have their degrees revoked.
Don't waste your money on these books. You would be much better off going to a reliable health portal on the internet.
Found the book to be perfect for my parents who are a bit shy of the internet. One was recently affected and wanted to start researching osteoarthritis, and this book put them in the right direction and made it easy. I would not recommend the book to someone who wants a basic understanding of the affliction (this is easy enough on search engines), but someone who want to know everything and know where to find it (trials, new inventions, etc.). It makes most sense to someone new to the disease and researching a medical topic.
