Our thinking about illness and the terminology we use have changed a lot since 1968. If you are reading older medical records or writing a novel or script set in the past, this book will be a big help. 312 pages, a few illustrations.

this is an older book, but it is full of new info to me. Once you understand the method, it is well organized and referenced.

I occasionally like a fool play doctor to myself and use this book in order to see that it is not as bad as I fear it might be. In other words I use it for self- diagnosis . But too much self- diagnosis is of course a dangerous thing. This work lists the symptoms into categories which are parts of the body, head and neck, chest, skin , urinary system etc.It has a very helpful table of contents that makes it easy to get to what one wants to check.It also in its entry provides first ' Identification' of the symptom and then Treatment.

This again may be helpful. But of course for anything that hints at being truly problematic a visit to the doctor is in order.
