    Always Current: The New Improved Dorland's Illustrated Medical Dictinary

    DORLAND'S ILLUSTRATED MEDICAL DICTIONARY, 32nd Edition, is even better than the last issue. This company has been making this invaluable source for all medical personal and paramedical personal and now even for the home for over 110 years. They know what they are doing and are continuing to do it well. Handsomely bound, the format is like every other dictionary - all entries are alphabetically placed and each section of the alphabet is marked by a thumb tab along the lateral border. The printing is absolutely readable with the word or topic being sought printed in maroon typeface, a clever device for facilitating looking for the term on a full page of writing. That is to say, this is a visually user-friendly book - all 2150 pages of it!

    In addition to offering a visual guide to correct pronunciation of the terms, there is an associated CD that comes in the back of the book which when inserted into you CD player or computer offers audio pronunciation guides for almost every term. (The CD also offers excellent appendices for listing anatomy, nerves, etc in understandably related columns.)

    While not every word is accompanied by 'graphic illustration,' many are. For instance, looking up Cimex lenticuaris (bed bug) there are all species listed, traits of the insects listed, and two excellent photographs, one showing the top side and the other the underside. In other words, if the reader finds a bug that may cause disease, this is a fine guide to exploring that topic. In addition to multiple photographs, there are also Xray views, drawings, anatomy details of all the muscles in the body, the brain, the nervous system, images of disease states etc. if the reader wants to know what a particular surgical operation (term) means, there is a section of alphabetically listed operations that is cross referenced with the remainder of the book so that the reader can obtain a rather full understanding - even the ability to look up the instruments to be used.

    This book is a must for medical students, for physicians' offices, and for the informed reader who wishes to understand the dialogue with medical people to aid in making decisions and being fully informed.
