FIVE STARS FROM DOODY'S REVIEW SERVICE! Entering its fifth decade, this book has been used in conjunction with Dr. West's lectures for medical and allied health students. It pays careful attention to keeping the material understandable, concise, yet detailed -- which is why previous editions have been held in such high esteem by thousands of readers who have used it as a primer, an additional study aid, and a board prep resource...The author is an unquestioned expert on respiratory physiology. Respiratory physiology is a very challenging subject and this book helps students quickly develop a fundamental understanding of the respiratory system...[It] is a must-have book not only for medical and respiratory care students, but also for university, college, and hospital libraries. --Doody's Review Service

I would highly recommend it to any med student for respiratory physiology module.
I do not recommend this for respiratory physicians, as I found it if little clinical use.
I find this book very useful to brush up what you've learned during physiology and patophysiology classes.
On the pro side: compact and lightweight, still tremendous amount of information inside, plus online content (key sticker inside).
I would give it 4,5 STARS - if I could - since some areas are not really deep and you may need to do some research, although very few!
If you are interested in reviewing these areas without the need of huge textbooks order instantly!
Be warned, size may be deceiving: small but not an easy thing to read! :D
I learned a lot from this & haven't found another resp book as good.
It's very small & thin, so not a massive over-detailed book. I really recommend this for understand physiology of the lungs. Also, it helped me a lot to understand pathology once I knew physiology of healthy lungs.
Information that might be expanded upon (after all, such a small volume could never pretend to be comprehensive) is readily identifiable and so might be readily complemented by further reading.
Maintains within LWW's wonderful tradition of small succinct books intended for easy learning.
