    Medical knowledge easy to research & understand. Every house should have one.

    As a retired nurse I found this book an easy way to update my own medical knowledge. The format was comprehensive & well laid out making research fast & easy. The simple language was helpful in dealing with many questions from family & friends. In fact I have given a copy to all my grown children so that they do not have to go online, print etc. However, this Manual should not replace professional advice & treatment but an be used to know when to call your doctor or to prepare for an informed conversation on your next medical appointment.

    more from this reviewer

    My mom asked me to get her this...

    and she is delighted. She does not get on the internet, so this is a great reference for her.

    You own mini-medical library!!

    Based on the medical classic 'Merck Manual' this version is written for specifically for the layperson. I like to think of it as a mini-medical library with a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips. A great resource for all, I give it 5 stars easy!

    Small Size, go for the bigger $13.00 Book

    We've enjoyed this book in the $13.00, larger Paperback Version. I didn't realize this was a much smaller book size, with the lettering smaller and not as nice to read and keep open to pages. It's the small popular paperback book size. There are no dimensions given to show the difference between the 2 books that look exactly the same in the listings.

    All of the medical information you could need.

    The Merck Manual has been one of the most useful reference books in our family. With children and aging parents, and various health concerns of our own, my spouse and I both find that this book gives detailed information but in a manner that we can understand. A definate must for anyone interested in understanding their family and their own health issues.
