I have known this textbook longer than I have known most of my family and friends! I used this as a primary source of information as a medical student (more years ago than I care to recall) in my clinical years. Even then one of the current editors taught me as a student. At that time the book was superb, and having reviewed the latest edition I retain the same opinion. It remains accessible, authoritative and pretty comprehensive in its coverage.
