"This is serious stuff. The most
widely used medical text in the world . . . Merck has
the lowdown on the vast expanse of human diseases, disorders
and injuries, as well as their symptoms and recommended
therapy. It's intended for physicians and medical students,
but though the type is tiny and the language technical,
the Merck Manual is a valuable volume for anyone with
more than a passing interest in bodily ills."
Amazon.com Product Reviews
As a pharmacy student in a hospital
setting, I often run across conditions I am not familiar
with. This book helps me to keep my head above water
as it details conditions (including etiology, prognosis,
therapy and any other relevant fact you'll need), appropriate
medications to treat and an easy and very complete index
to help you find all that information quickly. It's
unending number of pages is daunting but happily it
is easy to read and incredibly helpful!
