From the Publisher

British Journal of Hospital Medicine, February 2013

‘This is the eighth edition of Kumar and Clark in 15 years, which is a remarkable achievement and testament to the authors' dedication - the title of Kumar and Clark is now legendary. It is regarded by many as the "must-have" textbook for budding and qualified doctors and the "gold standard" when compared against competitor textbooks. Previous editions have been applauded for being both comprehensive and student-friendly. Does the latest edition live up to the high expectation? The short answer is yes….’
