Edited By Rick Kellerman and David Rakel
Published by Elsevier
Yes, you read this correctly, it is in it’s 74th edition and it is published every year and is clearly updated. For example, there is a significant chapter on Covid-19 (page 561) which gives a great general review on the topic and brings together all the information, we have been bombarded with. Because of it’s annual update and publication, it clearly stays on top of the game, in terms of keeping uptodate with events. Reading the preface brings home to the reader, what an undertaking this must be. There are 21 pages of contributors, packed into 1538 pages of high-quality text, sandwiched between a hard back cover.
