Book ReviewsIn this monthly feature, we collect a few excerpts from reviews of our books.  Here is a sampling of our April book reviews:

A Man's Guide to a Nursing Career by Chad O'Lynn, RN, PhD

“Though O'Lynn emphasizes a male perspective on becoming a nurse, this book should be required reading for anyone thinking about entering the nursing profession....The section on nursing education from the perspective of both students and instructors is worth the price of the book....Highly recommended."--Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries

Multicultural Perspectives in Social Work Practice with Families, edited by Elaine Congress, DSW; Manny Gonzalez

Multicultural Perspectives in Social Work Practice with Families is in its third edition and continues to expand the depth and breadth with which culture may be understood and the impact of culture in working with families. Congress, Gonzalez, and their contributors have updated this text to include a focus on evidence-based practice, 10 additional chapters, revision of a valuable assessment tool, and a culturagram. This book clearly is an essential resource for social workers committed to culturally sensitive practice."--Journal of Teaching in Social Work

Florence Nightingale's Notes on Nursing and Notes on Nursing for the Labouring Classes: Commemorative Edition with Historical Commentary, edited by Victor Skretkowicz, PhD

"This book was a delight. An account of cutting-edge nursing and medical care from London, circa 1850, by somebody who needs no introduction. Florence Nightingale is nothing if not forthright and her description of both the nursing and social situation of the times is illuminating."--IAHPC (International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care) Newsletter

Compact Clinical Guide to Critical Care, Trauma, and Emergency Pain Management: An Evidence-Based Approach for Nurses, by Liza Marmo, MSN, RN-BC, CCRN; Yvonne D'Arcy, MS, CRNP, CNS

Counseling Boys and Young Men, edited by Suzanne Degges-White, PhD, LMHC, LPC, NCC; Bonnie Colon, LMHC, NCC, NCSC

"Counseling Boys and Young Men provides a plethora of information and counseling techniques essential to the continued development of young men....The text serves as a noteworthy manual addressing the myriad of issues affecting young males in today's society."--The Professional Counselor Journal
