I write this having owned Harrison's for two weeks.

Overall the depth of information is inbetween that of Davidson's at the lower end and the oxford textbook of medicine at the top end. At about 3800 pages its conceivable that one can study most of Harrisons and it won't sit on the shelf merely looking good, which it does handsomely.

For someone more used to Davidson's as a one stop medical resource the chapter organization needs a little getting used to. Cardinal presentations of disease have their own chapter instead of appearing at the start of subject specific chapters and topics such as lung cancer are also located in their own oncology chapter. Metabolic disease and endocrinology are lumped into one chapter. But lets not trouble ourselves too much with the layout. For me it works and its nice to read the cardinal presentations chapter which spreads over 300 pages in its entirety as a practical approach to internal medicine in general.

Many sections of the book are simply awesome such as the 700 page infectious diseases chapter which is a goldmine of in depth information.

However, I have some criticisms of Harrison's:

Whilst it does not purport to be a manual of medicine I wish it was more practical in terms of the management sections. I will use the stable angina chapter as an example. The tables of drugs have a dose column but this is generally the maximum dose. e.g. for bisoprolo it shows 10mg. Nowhere does it say anything about practically how to start the bblocker e.g. why not just have another column of 'initital dose'. This is the case for many chapters which might for example say treat with furosemide but give no information at all on a suggested dose. So its not a book you could use at the coal face of medicine.

Probably one of the best books I have in terms of content. Easy to refer to as everything is colour coded and categorised well. With two volumes I think to buy some sticky notes is a good idea as they will be useful to go back to review things you have read. Covered everything I learnt at university. Very Good Buy!

The book is what I expected and it was delivered to my address in a short time. Very good about it. The price was adequate.
I would recommend you something about the packaging: as the book is a heavy item, you need to add more disposable material - paper or something - around it within the outer cardboard, to pad it more efficiently. Mine was a little bumped in the corners and the edges. Nothing that justifies returning the order but something that would had been better to avoid when you care about books (the contents and the cover).
It's the only reason I've ratted it with 4 stars instead of 5 (otherwise it deserved 6 stars in 5...).
Thank you.

I have always had Harrison's textbook since I was a medical student in the late 60's and early 70's. Together with its companion exam books helped me get through many exams. Starting with my MB in1971, followed by ECFMG and many other postgrad degrees. Its becoming heavier and I am getting weaker to carry it. It is therefore pleasure to have it as an e-book,

This Edition is really nice. It is divided in 2 volumes, which facilitates handling. The hardcover is very durable and nice. The only thing that could improve would be the thikness of the print paper inside, which is very thin and gets "wavy" easily.

I purchased this book because it's the required bibliography for Med School finals in my country.
A good book, a little confusing and redundant sometimes, but on the overall it has almost everything you need to know about internal medicine. You'll get what you paid for.
