5.0 out of 5 stars The Bible of Medicine 10 Oct 2011
This is absolutely the most outstanding medical work I know. It condenses an immense amount of knowledge in one (relatively) small book. It's written by hundreds of experts - each of them from among the best in their field. It's extensively reviewed in a very strict process of peer review, including specific consultants and the editorial board, to produce a work that is so accurate and so condensed that it is almost like a miracle.

Being a highly religious person myself, I wouldn't lightly call any book a "bible of ..." - but in this case, the Merck Manual is indeed on that level. The only other work that approaches it is Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, but I personally prefer the Merck Manual. One reason for that is the price. I greatly respect Merck for committing to make this work available on a not-for-profit basis. It is enlightening to see a pharmaceutical giant providing such a service to the medical community and thereby benefiting the entire world.

I purchased the last 3 editions (17th, 18th, 19th) immediately when they were released, and intend to do so in the future as well. It's amazing work that can be used for both reference and for regular study. Personally I occasionally take a chapter or section about a subject and write my own 'summary' - the 'summary' usually being much longer than the original, to fully understand the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Physicians and Educated Individuals 2 Nov 2011
Physicians in North America were the original target audience. It is a handy reference that many physicians use when checking on some issue (there is so much to remember). Many individuals who are able to understand medical terminology use this reference for their jobs or when looking at their own health because it is accurate and complete. I've used it as a reference when working as a rehabilitation specialist and now as a reviewer of research. While it is quite expensive the quality justifies the investment. There are now quite a few foreign language editions because it is so complete. If you are a hypochondriac this is the perfect book to have; the detailed descriptions of symptoms and disease outcomes will never leave you guessing. These days the Internet has a lot of good info through sites such as Pubmed so you could do without the book. However, the beauty of this book is that you don't need to spend hours searching the net for just one more source - with this one book you can likely survive.

I have always used it for over 25 years.

And it never fails to impress.
It is all in all under one roof, a bit like shopping in supermarket.

It also covers peds, gynae, ENT,dermatology and the rest.

Highly highly recommended.
How people do without it,Icannot understand.
