The Merck Manual of Medical InformationBook - 2003 | 2nd home ed.
Packed full of essential information in an easy-to-read style The Merck Manual Of Medical Information is the home reference guide for all health conscious readers. For the past twenty years the publishers of The Merck Manual, one of the most widely used sources of medical information in the world, realised that more and more copies of the guide were being purchased by people who were no healthcare professionals, despite the fact that it had never been advertised and was not written for public use. Recognising the public's increasing need for access to the same medical information doctors have, Merck responded with the Home Edition. This contained virtually all the information in the physician's version, but in easy-to-understand everyday language, with a reader-friendly format. Since its publication three years ago the Home Edition has gone on to sell more than 2 million copies worldwide. Now Merck have updated the edition to cater for the changing medical environment. The new edition contains 35 new chapters on subjects ranging from Gene Therapy and the warning signs of cancer to biological warfare and terrorism and with 64 new illustrations and colour plates along with new tables
