This large work, which represents a rather standard textbook of medicine, covering the usual fields from infectious diseases to neurology, has justifiably occupied an increasingly important place in the teaching of undergraduate medical students. It has been well revised and brought up-to-date, particularly in the sections on cardiovascular and infectious diseases. The style is concise and brief, and yet the book offers enough information on all subjects presented for students. The book is well illustrated and easy to read. The contributing authors are all well qualified in their fields. It can be recommended, particularly as a textbook of medicine.
