Publisher Comments:

'The American Heritage® Stedman's Medical Dictionary is the essential reference work for everyone concerned with medicine and health today. It combines the professional and scientific expertise of Stedman's well-known medical publications with the clarity and accessibility of the renowned American Heritage® dictionaries.

• More than 45,000 entries from all areas of medicine and health care

• Clear, precise definitions written in language nonspecialists can understand

• Biographical entries for important scientists and physicians

• Diagrams, charts, and drawings that enhance definitions'

Book News Annotation:

Approximately 45,000 entries provide pronunciation, parts of speech, and definition(s). Line drawings and tables are present, but not in great number. Appendixes of nutritional, chemical, and anatomical concern are nice additions. Thumb indexing and speckled fore-edging provide handsome flourishes.
