Having used the Oxford Textbook of Medicine while a medical student, resident, and practitioner on three continents during the past two decades, I was delighted to review this latest edition.

The Oxford Textbook of Medicine has served as the definitive British reference source in internal medicine for the past 20 years. The new fourth edition continues the all-encompassing tradition, offering a comprehensive cell-to-bedside-to-worldwide perspective on internal medicine. The three-volume set is unique amid the plethora of well-known US medicine texts, providing a genuinely global picture of disease. The contributors, a stellar cast of nationally and internationally known authorities from around the world, make it regionally relevant.
