Even the reader who obtained the first edition of this remarkable textbook must feel like a seeker after buried treasure who stumbles upon yet a richer trove 3 years later. The book is larger (the editors say by 80 pages) and offers more science on which to base this specialty. Revisions, updating, and rewriting characterize the greater portion: 78 authors and five section editors have been replaced (and not because their contributions weren't also excellent). In short, this is a book that all internists, regardless of subspecialty, should consult, and that physicians and other health professionals should also have available if they deal with disability or diseases of the locomotor system, skin, eye, vasculature—well, any part of the body or the body as a whole, to diagnose, to treat, to operate upon, to rehabilitate, to understand.
