5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW

"The book is for anyone who has the remotest association with the practice of medicine, be they internists, surgeons, nurses, technical staff, or counselors. This is the authority, and in a time of readily available but not always accurate information, this is the one source that can be relied upon....This is one of the absolute pillars of any medical library. It is the final word in internal medicine and we all owe a debt of gratitude to the editors and contributors who have created this extraordinary authority in medicine."—Doody's Review Service

MORE THAN TRUSTED, BEYOND ESSENTIAL . . .

The #1 selling medical textbook worldwide, Harrison's has defined internal medicine for millions of clinicians and students. The new 17th Edition retains Harrison's acclaimed balance of pathobiology, cardinal signs and manifestations of disease, and best approaches to patient management, yet has been massively updated to give you an innovative array of bold new features and content. If ever there was one must-have resource for clinicians and students — this is it!

UNMATCHED EXPERTISE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

As an unprecedented amount of medical information bombards you and your patients, where do you go to sort it out and make sense of it all? When your patients request clarification on something they've “printed off,” where do you turn for expert explanations? The same trusted resource physicians and students have turned to for more than fifty years: Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine. Now more than ever, trust Harrison's to filter and clarify the exploding knowledge base, to highlight the breakthroughs, and to deliver a clear, balanced distillation of the best and most current information on which to base clinical decisions.

THE MOST EXCITING AND EXTENSIVELY REVISED EDITION EVER!

Here are just a few of the reasons why the new 17th Edition of Harrison's is the best edition yet:

  • Bonus companion DVD featuring:

    37 new “e-chapters”; over 500 brand-new radiological, laboratory, and clinical images, including complete atlases; state-of-the-art video clips; an Image Bank of nearly all the illustrations contained in the parent text, and much more

  • Expanded, modernized illustration program with more than 800 brand-new, additional illustrations—a 60% increase over the previous edition
  • Dozens of brand new chapters on vital topics in medical education and clinical practice: Global Issues in Medicine: Patient Safety and Health Quality; Health Disparities: Atlas of EKGs; Clinical Management of Obesity; Atlas of Hematology; Atlases of Chest, Neurological, and Cardiovascular Radiology; and much more! Also included is a complete new section on biological foundations and emerging clinical applications of regenerative medicine!
  • Brand new, reader-friendly text design optimizes the full-color format
  • An expanded, innovative focus on global health
  • NEW Global Advisory Board comprising 11 prominent medical experts from Asia, India, Europe, and South America
  • Revision of the popular On Line Learning Center, which offers more skill-sharpening self-assessment questions and answers, plus additional case studies for helping you apply Harrison's content to the daily care of patients
  • Harrison's related products are available in a full suite of formats to meet all your educational and clinical needs. Harrison's Practice of Medicine is a complete database of more than 700 clinical topics formatted for use at the point of care.

    The Harrison's Manual of Medicine is one of the most popular and heavily used handbook-sized resources in internal medicine. The Harrison's Self-Assessment and Board Review features more than 1000 board-type cases and questions and highlights the use of Harrison's as a great board prep resource.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is the seventeenth edition of the most recognized comprehensive authority in internal medicine. This edition continues the book's long history of excellence in documenting the current understanding of human normal and pathophysiology. First published in 1958, the most recent edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The editors attempt to keep step with the advances of the science of medicine while maintaining an appreciation of the art of medicine and the principles underlying the optimal care of the patient. Upon review, it is crystal clear they have been successful. The first chapter illustrates the point by outlining a philosophy and approach to the patient, gently warning of the biases that human physicians can fall prey to, and touch on the challenges for the future. Well done.
Audience: The book is for anyone who has the remotest association with the practice of medicine, be they internists, surgeons, nurses, technical staff, or counselors. This is the authority, and in a time of readily available but not always accurate information, this is the one source that can be relied upon.
Features: One of the highlights is a CD-ROM with supplemental graphs, photographs, videos and summaries. Yet, this CD does not detract from the full-color photographs in the book, the comprehensive tables and color figures, the definitions of terms, advice for further in-depth readings, and references. Numerous epidemiological issues, marked by small globes in the margins, give the bigger picture of how a medical concern may have global impact. Also of note are "social" issues such as bioterrorism concerns embedded in the infectious disease chapter, a separate radiological bioterrorism chapter, and employee health service-specific considerations. The index is comprehensive and intuitive.
Assessment: This is one of the absolute pillars of any medical library. It is the final word in internal medicine and we all owe a debt of gratitude to the editors and contributors who have created this extraordinary authority in medicine.

Library Journal

An update to the 2004 edition, this massive, single-volume work-a duplicate of the less unwieldy, albeit more costly two-volume set-is broken into 392 chapters comprising entries by more than 620 medical professionals. Entries average several pages in length and include diagrams, case photographs, and quick-reference charts. In addition to entries on pathogenesis, Fauci (Harrison's Rheumatology) and a cadre of other expert editors offer segments engaging issues of medical education, global concerns, and clinical practice. Highlights include 800 new full-color illustrations and an accompanying DVD-with 90 video clips, an expansive image bank, and 39 additional subject chapters. Highly recommended.

    Harrison's = Good Medicine

    Potential buyers should know right off the bat that this book is for people who have a medical background only- your average person is not going to be able to understand much of it. <BR/><BR/>So who is it for then? Well, I've been in medicine for 15 years and find this book all over the hospital so really just about any health professional who wants a general reference book for how to manage adult diseases of practically any system (such as GI, respiratory, neurological disorders to name a few) will find this book to be a good resource. <BR/><BR/>Having said that, the book is mainly written as a resource for internal medicine doctors, that is docs that focus on adult medicine and have had special study and training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. So if you're in the medical profession, deal with adults, and are looking for a good reference book on adult medical conditions and treatments, this huge and comprehensive volume is probably just what you're looking for. One caveat though, while there is a wealth of info in here on how to manage and treat adult problems, there is no mention of how to better get patients to do what they are prescribed to do (exercise, take their meds, eat less fat..) and so I also recommend health professional check out The Sixty-Second Motivator for tips on increasing patient compliance. After all, what good is the best medical advice if no one follows it?
