Literature Review

Each time I receive this journal, I first open to the section on “What's in the Literature” and read it thoroughly. I have found Dr Phillips' analysis of the selected published literature in the preceding months highly informative, enjoyable to read, and practical. Going through the literature, selecting the most relevant articles, bundling them together, and reading and analyzing each one is not an easy task and must take a great deal of time and effort. So, when I saw Dr Phillips about a year ago, after thanking him for doing such a fantastic job, I asked whether he would like to take a short break and allow me to help him with writing this section, at least for one time. He kindly agreed. Hence, here is my take on the selected articles published in the past several months.
