I am a dual resident in Emergency medicine and internal medicine. I have studied from many medical texts in my training and its rare that you find a book that teaches you while you read it instead of just facts presented on a page. Harrisosn's is, in my oppinion the root for all medicine board questions, and I would trust no other text for my career in internal medicine.
