    Excellent medicine textbook! The best one!

    I have been reading The Merck Manual since 1976 and the editors just improve this wonderful textbook in each new edition. The topics are clears, concise and up to date. As a general surgeon and medicine teacher since 25 years ago I prefer this book in order to do quick reviews of a vast number of medical conditions.
    By the way, I received this publication promptly in very good condition from Barnes & Noble with an special promotion. Thanks a lot B & N!
