"This is the 24th Edition of these well recognized text book. Excellent tabular material, thorough diagrams, and bibliographies are available. All chapters have been brought up to date, which are completely re-written include geriatric medicine, genetics, immunology and clinical pharmacology. All chapters are written by well recognized experts in the appropriate fields. In addition to the two main editors, there are nine associate editors all outstanding representatives of their fields. 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.
