This is the fully up to date second edition of "The Respiratory System" by Davies and Moores. Personally, my favourite aspect of the book is the complete integration of the preclinical and clinical sciences. Within the chapter on, for example "Ventilation of the Respiratory System", the pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of a pneumothorax patient is followed in a series of easy to track boxes in parallel with core text regarding physiology of respiratory ventilation. This way students can contextualise what might otherwise seem like simple physiology, into a pathophysiological clinical scenario. This has the benefit of providing an intuitively easy, effective and time-efficient way to understand and remember respiratory system physiology. I would highly recommend it to any pre-clinical or respiratory medicine student.

I got this not because I'm a medical student but because I'm an engineer now working on the development of medical ventilators and I need to be aware of the rudiments of respiratory anatomy, physiology and pathology. For that purpose this book is pretty good. It's well written and well illustrated and doesn't cost the arm-and-a-leg that is common for medical textbooks. How good it is if you are studying medicine, I'm not qualified to say but it's OK for me.
