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.
