Spanish-speaking patients are no rarity in United States hospitals and clinics, as many English-speaking health care providers have discovered. To help these providers better communicate with the patients they serve, Ana Malinow Rajkovic has prepared the Manual for (Relatively) Painless Medical Spanish, a lively and innovative self-teaching guide to the grammar, pronunciation, and medical vocabulary of Spanish. Presented in a systematic and highly entertaining fashion, twelve lessons cover some of the most commonly encountered situations. These include the family clinic, the emergency room, appendicitis, the social chat, pregnancy, family planning, pelvic inflammatory disease and urinary tract infection, depression, children with asthma, patients with angina, explaining a venipuncture and a spinal tap, and patients with shortness of breath. Each lesson closes with a bilingual interview that includes vocabulary and grammar introduced in that lesson. A guide to the medical history and physical examination appears in English and Spanish in the appendix. Excellent in the classroom or for independent learning, the Manual will enable health care providers better to understand and supply the needs of Spanish-speaking patients.

Clinical Neuroscience: Psychopathology and the Brain, Second Edition, uses a student-friendly, integrative, and empirically based approach to present the neuroscience underlying various psychological disorders.

Pedagogical features including chapter-opening vignettes (Connections), case studies (A Case in Point), running marginal glossaries, and feature boxes (Brain Matters) illuminate the course content for students as they learn about the value of translational research (i.e., transformingbasic research into applied therapies).
