5.0 out of 5 stars The Essential Book To Analyze Complex Medical Research With Ease 22 May 2009
By Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man - Published on Amazon.com
On the heels of sharing her personal story of beginning a medical writing career in The Accidental Medical Writer, author Cyndy Kryder wanted to provide a resource for writers analyzing research studies, medical information, and technical terms that can sometimes be hard to follow or understand. The title of this book-NUDE MICE-is one such example meaning specially bred rodents that are missing their thymus glands which causes them to have no hair or fur on their bodies.

As an amateur layperson reading scientific studies about low-carbohydrate diets often, I found Kryder's book to be an invaluable resource. While some of the terminology used in research and medicine is easy to figure out (i.e. neo means new), others are not so simple (i.e. dacty which refers to bodily digits like fingers or toes). I'll be keeping this book handy whenever I'm pouring over a new study to blog about in the future and I'm thankful for the time that Kryder paid to make this book as thorough and entertaining to read and use as possible (a minor miracle considering the subject matter!).

You'll get all the prefixes, suffixes, root words, combination of terms, acronyms, abbreviations, and writing tips galore to make your medical writing as perfect as it can possibly be. Whether you are a medical writer or just interested in comprehending the latest research studies that come out, NUDE MICE is a book you don't want to live without!
