"This book [Fast Facts: Rheumatoid Arthritis] was so easy to read, I read it in an hour, yet I was amazed that it could update me so efficiently on the new evidence on rheumatoid arthritis, pathogenesis (especially genetics), and immunologic testing. This is a good overview of new ACR criteria, biologics, and mechanism of action with a brief discussion of the new advances in treatment."
