    A bargain for the money

    This annual text is the first that I examine for a review of questions regarding medical diagnosis and treatment. It is wide in scope, covering each subject with succinct thoroughness. At times there are references to current research; I could wish for more. It is a medical text with medical nomenclature throughout, and therefore does not have a glossary. Such nomenclature may well make this volume sufficiently abstruse that a general reader and young student may not find it appropriate for them, without a medical dictionary at hand. For me, it is a source I would not be without for a quick and easy look at a new problem. Nurses, as well as doctors, both specialists and generalists, could always find something newly revisited that could be of interest. A selling point is that it is updated annually.
