Format: Hardcover
The Merck manual is a bookshelf must for all medical or biomedical science students, and for all members of the healthcare team.

A text which at first glance appears limited purely by its lack of size, do not be fooled. The pages are extremely thin and there are nearly 3000 of them, packed with information in a well presented, accessible form.

Well worth its small cost, this world-famous text will act as a dictionary, textbook and study reference guide all in one, covering the simplest to the most uncommon of symptoms and illnesses.

An excellent investment which I have used in EVERY assignment including my dissertation so far in my Biomedical Science degree, of which I am in my final year. I can attribute a great number of my marks to this essential text.

I have purchased every edition of The Merck Manual starting with the 10th edition. They all have been the best medical information resource available at the time.
The new, 17th edition, has surpassed all past editions. The typeface has been improver (made larger), the layout of topics has been changed for the better and the writing style has been made more lay person reader friendly. In sum, the best has got even better.

In my quality as layman I have been a faithful subscriber to the Merck Manual for the last twenty years . I find in it all the new discoveries in the field of medical science, thanks to which I often forgo to consult a medical practitioner. And I am still enjoying a pretty excellent health in my 79th year.

By Paul J. Fitzgerald on 1 Dec. 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a one-of-a-kind, general reference medical book that is both extremely thorough and very well written. It's actually quite a pleasure to read for anyone curious about medicine and the workings of human body and mind. The section on psychiatric disorders and their treatment, my area of interest, covers about 100 pages, and seems accurate and authoritative. Some aspects of that section may be a touch antiquated, but that doesn't necessarily detract from the book. Overall, an authoritative reference that is readily accessible to the lay person.

Format: Hardcover
This is the most comprehensive guide to medicine and the size of it makes it hugely portable. Most medical textbooks don't contain information for psychiatry, obs and gynae or paeds but this has it all plus alot of physiology. I recommend this book to anyone, the only problem is that it is an American book and not International and so measurements are not what I'm used to but it is easily worked around! Buy this book if you want a good a comprehensive reference guide!

Just a great medical reference book that has been around forever- however its probably more for medical professionals though than the lay person as the language can get a bit complicated- check out the home version if you're non-medical. Also recommended for healthcare workers, The Sixty-Second Motivator to learn how to better motivate patients to exercise, take their meds, eat better, etc.

Format: Hardcover
As a medical student, whose first exposure to the clinical subjects can be confusing and intimidating, you have a friend in the Merck Manual. The differential diagnoses and signs/symptoms of most disorders are laid out with the detail of textbooks, while cross-referencing many associated disorders. This is a good, concise alternative to other volumes of internal medicine texts.
