A great consumer-friendly reference book
This is from U.S. News & World Report, so of course there are lots of rankings and data about the best adult and children's hospitals in the U.S., as well as diets and over-the-counter medicines. But there are also lots of in-depth but very readable articles about the latest developments in autism, Alzheimer's, heart surgery, pain management, cancer drugs, genome mapping, healthcare reform and other topics. Wonderful photography too.
