    JAMA-Journal of the American Medical Association -acclaims "MEDICAL EXPERT TESTIMONY." Calls his new book “Crowning achievement” and “Definitive text.

    Washington, D.C., February 2, 2010 --"'MEDICAL EXPERT TESTIMONY' is The Definitive Text for physicians seeking to augment their income as medical expert witnesses or for clinicians forced to participate in the civil litigation arena," according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. The book review is published in JAMA. 2010; 303 (4): 369 by reviewer Alan G. Williams, JD, in the Book and Media Reviews of the Journal of the American Association. Perry Hookman MD, board certified in both Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine, is the author of the new Book II Medical Expert Testimony: Advanced Syllabus for Health Care Professionals (Hardcover) 33 chapters; 936 pages. Publisher: Potomac Press-CRC; ISBN: 978-0-9817570-0-1; ISBN: 10:0-9817570-0-6 - Price $289.95; including CD-ROM.

    This recent JAMA review points out that:

    "Although Perry Hookman has previously written a valuable reference manual regarding medical expert testimony in malpractice cases (Book I Medical Malpractice Expert Witnessing: Introductory Guide for Physicians and Medical Professionals),[his new Book II] -Medical Expert Testimony: Advanced Syllabus for Healthcare Professionals - represents his crowning achievement."

    "The novice medical expert can greatly benefit from the keen observations and astute recommendations in the chapters regarding "Strategies and Tactics Designed to Trick the Expert"; "Questions to Make the Medical Expert Look Biased, Incompetent, Embarrassed"; and "How Attorneys Use Cross-Examination Mishaps, Errors, and Testimony Control for Impeachment of the Medical Expert Witness."

    "Hookman begins by explaining what the particular strategic move by the attorney is and then follows with the recommended counter-move. The advice contained in these chapters alone makes the book well worth reading."

    "The format of Medical Expert Testimony contributes to its appeal; each topic is clearly delineated and interspersed with text boxes of facts and examples. As opposed to page after page of text (the book totals nearly 1000 pages), Medical Expert Testimony succeeds as a reference manual owing in part to its staccato bursts presenting the identified problem, the recommended remedy, and the likely result. Each section is followed by a list of sources to aid the reader in exploring additional references or materials."

    "'Medical Expert Testimony,' written by a veteran expert witness who obviously knows his subject, serves as a thorough explication of serving as an expert witness in a medical malpractice case. Other than omitting few superfluous sections, it is difficult to imagine a better way to meaningfully improve on this textbook. Medical expert witnesses would do well to heed the recommendations and advice presented in this unique and insightful reference."
