Overall, this book is very helpful as a pocket guide to sorting through any obscure eponym reference an attending may make! The book is concise and the format makes finding items extremely easy. I have already told some of the people at our medical school about it. Nice job!

I have found this book to be very easy to use, which is great when I'm pressed for time. My husband, who is not in the medical field, has found this book to be fascinating and informative.

I've found this dictionary very complete and easy to use. A godsend!

I picked this book up because I was tired of hearing names and not knowing what the disease really was. I must say I am impressed by the number of eponyms and the quality of the definitions. The index is great and there is a cross-reference section by subject. I think this is a great reference book for medical students and health professionals.
