The updated third edition of this encyclopedic textbook appears seven years after the last edition. Extensive revisions have been made to include 50 new conditions or subjects.
Despite the inflationary skyrocketing of the price of books, it seems worthwhile to mention that the first edition 14 years ago cost $25, and had 300 fewer pages.
The illustrations are of good quality. The book continues to be clear and readable with the kind of broad coverage useful for medical practitioners, those in postgraduate training, and medical students.
