The Merck Manual of Medical Information (Home Edition) by Robert Berkow, Merck & Co.

One of the most widely used sources of medical information in the world, The Merck Manual had previously been written for doctors and healthcare professionals -- not the general public. Now The Merck Manual -- Home Edition contains virtually all of the information in the physician's version, but in easy-to-understand, everyday language, with a reader-friendly format.

Written by 200 internationally respected medical experts, this bestselling reference presents in-depth information for almost all medical problems, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Digestive disorders
  • Cancer
  • Nutrition problems
  • AIDS
  • Hormonal problems
  • Infections
  • Men's, women's, and children's health issues
  • Mental health disorders
  • Accidents and injuries
  • Care for the dying

and much more, as well as a detailed discussion of prescription and over-the-counter medications, an appendix of resources for help and information, and a detailed index.

Generously illustrated, comprehensive, and current, The Merck Manual -- Home Edition is published as a not-for-profit service by Merck -- a world leader in breakthrough medical discoveries with a long commitment to making the world a healthier place.
