Book News Annotation:

This text began its life in 1899 as Merck's Manual of the Materia Medica and is now one of the world's most widely used medical textbooks. For the new edition, the editors (all of Merck & Co., Inc, the American pharmaceutical company) have revised the organization such that information has been separated more clearly into sections describing pathology, physiology, etiology, symptoms and signs, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention. A summary of key points introduces every major discussion. Material is organized by disorder, and the manual includes chapters on clinical pharmacology, injuries, and poisoning.
