Author Notes

A Stockport (near Manchester, UK) native, Andrea took her life in her hands a few years ago and crossed the great North/South divide and now lives in Norfolk with her partner, their two border collies, and two and a half cats (one isn't sure if she wants to be theirs anymore as the lady down the street feeds her Whiskas rather than whatever is on offer at the supermarket, like they do). Andrea spends her time running their campsite and hostel to pay the bills, and scribbling down stories during the winter months.

Andrea is an avid reader and a keen musician, playing the saxophone and the guitar (just to annoy her other half—apparently). She is also a recreational diver and takes an opportunity to head to warmer climes and discover the mysteries of life beneath the waves.

Choice Review

Previous editions included "Concise" in the title, now dropped to avoid the misconception that Stedman's ... for the Health Professions and Nursing is merely a miniature version of Stedman's (now called The American Heritage Stedman's Medical Dictionary, CH, Mar'05, 42-3773). In fact, this rich resource contains terms, images, and appendixes that are unique. Several disciplines have been added to its coverage--e.g., emergency medical services, medical transcription, massage therapy, bioterrorism. The 51,000 entries, aimed at readers in the health professions and nursing, contain succinct definitions with pronunciation keys. Over 900 pictures--in color and black-and-white, including 500 new images--illustrate the text pages and color inserts on anatomy, imaging technologies, and diagnostic techniques. Of the 69 appendixes, 30 are new and the rest completely updated, providing a wealth of information about diet and nutrition, drugs, assessment and care, professional information, and much more. The accompanying CD-ROM reproduces the entire content of the dictionary with illustrations, and adds audio pronunciations (uneven but helpful) and animated pictures for some terms. The price is a bargain. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. Important for health profession collections, and a good choice for academic and public libraries. L. N. Pander Bowdoin College
