The concept of an annual review in respiratory medicine has proved very successful... the format makes the book a real pleasure to read, and the end result is most engaging and didactic. It is easily digestible, and at the same time improves your professional insight" Comment by Professor Ronald Dahl, Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark. The new issue of The Year in Respiratory Medicine provides a comprehensive literature-based update on recent developments in fourteen hot topics within this extremely diverse field. The authors, all practicing clinicians, have scanned the literature to identify the fastest-moving areas of publication that are relevant to the majority of their daily practice. From their selection and analysis of the most important papers published in each area are derived the latest literature based recommendations for management of the patient with respiratory disease. Reviewer’s comment on the previous issue: "This is a beautiful book. The structure in each chapter is very helpful and clear and provides detail and summary with clinical and basic research content. The research studies evaluated have been chosen carefully with clinical relevance in mind. This book is not only useful now but will remain useful as a review and reference document throughout the year…The book contains thought-provoking information which, with the help of the up-to-date background the reference provides, will lead the reader to explore further. I look forward to seeing the next issue" Douglas Morrison, Scottish Medical Journal, 2005
