ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED, STRAIGHT FROM THE EXPERTS

The Facts series offers clear, straightforward, and practical advice about a range of medical conditions and topics.

The mass of medical information now available can be bewildering, and it can be difficult to know which sources to trust. For patients and their carers wishing to go beyond the information available from busy doctors, or simply not sure of the right questions to ask, The Facts series offers a clear path through a maze of conflicting advice.

Every title is written by a specialist in the field, so the reader can be sure that the information offered is reliable, authoritative and balanced. The experts cover all the most frequently-asked questions, from background information to treatment options, terminology, how daily life will be affected, and where to go for more help.

Designed to be accessible to patients and their families, The Facts books are also ideal for healthcare professionals of all levels who are looking for brief, practical reviews to help them in advising their patients.

"...this book is highly useful and deserves the interest of (COPD) patients, their families and their carers...all the important and practical aspects of COPD are covered...this concise book...may help, in some way, to reduce the burden of COPD in the community at large, and the author should be congratulated for the quality of this contribution." - European Respiratory Review

"The authors have packed a huge amount of information into a small, neat book that's patient-friendly and accessible. I just wish I'd been able to read it all those years ago." - Maeve Binchy, Daily Mail, on Osteoarthritis: The Facts

"This isn't a 'soft' book...that holds the hand of the reader from diagnosis to treatment...it's dry, full of medical studies and hits you with facts. But don't let this put you off. Full of...the latest research into therapies, it's well worth persevering with." - Ros Holness, Daily Mail, on Stroke: The Facts

"THE definitive book on pill use for the consumer... and the professional." - Family Planning Today, on The Pill: The Facts

"The book provides an excellent guide for patients on the cause, classification and treatment of asthma, and useful guidance on the self-management of the condition." - Ian Pavord, Asthma UK, on Asthma: The Facts

"This excellent book covers the whole range of eating disorders from anorexia to obesity...all possible causes for the conditions are described and discussed...Anyone concerned with eating disorders would benefit from this book." - Youthinmind.co.uk, on Eating Disorders: The Facts

"You couldn't ask for a better book on this disease." - Journal of the Muscular Dystrophy Assocation, on Myotonic Dystrophy: The Facts

"This book is to be welcomed. It provides concise, helpful, and practical information for the lay person or their carer on the reasons why we tend to fall as we age and how the risk of falling can be reduced." - From the foreword by Pamela Holmes, Help the Aged, on Falls: The Facts
