From “Booklist”: Achord examines the four main varieties–A, B, C, and D–of a disease that affects millions throughout the world. After describing the anatomy and physiology of the liver, he delves into hepatitis' causes, the signs and symptoms of its acute and chronic forms, and its possible complications. His section on prevention contains practical suggestions, such as making sure to tell one's doctor about any drugs one is taking or using (alcohol is one of the most dangerous), because several types of hepatitis can be caused by individual drugs or drug combinations. Achord's discussion concludes with an informative and upbeat account of research in the pipeline, followed by a short list of sources of further information and a glossary of the confusing terminology in the field of hepatic disease. Another excellent entry in a first-rate series.
