Great Medical Textbook April 2, 2011
A very good clear textbook, it is made for the student that has just started a course, and would like to have a clear overall view of the material. When I start a course, I would like to have a textbook that will give me the introduction, and only after I have seen with what I am dealing, I feel prepare enough to read some other much more detailed material. The details are saved for last.
This textbook is perfect for the introduction, and much more. If you would like to read about the smallest! Details I suggest you read the bible of Harrison.
