"This is a comprehensive volume of internal medicine and associated areas which can serve most excellently not only the medical student and the clinical resident but it should be on the bookshelf of all practicing physicians including those whose field is different from internal medicine." - Julian L. Ambrus, MD, PhD, FACP, Journal of Medicine

The editors have brought together the best of world-renowned experts in their areas to organize an overview of the accepted facts of physiology, diagnosis, and treatment. Each of the classic textbooks of medicine is written with a particular philosophy, and this one is known for its practical, quick, comprehensive nature. This edition continues to meet that extraordinary goal. The editors and authors have drawn on their extensive experience to produce a truly noteworthy book.

"Without doubt it has retained its authoritative role and remains a sweeping and detailed of general medicine and I mean detailed...this is a vast modern textbook of medicine which combines the rich tradition of the old with the energy of the new. The price may just be slightly over 100 pounds but for what you get, it is very good value." - Univadis, February 2012
