I thought it might be helpful to people if I excerpted the following from Prof. John Hall's preface to the 12th edition because it deals in part with what revisions he made for the book:

"I worked closely with Dr. Guyton for almost 30 years and had the privilege of writing parts of the 9th and 10th editions. After Dr. Guyton's tragic death in an automobile accident in 2003, I assumed responsibility for completing the 11th edition.

For the 12th edition of the Textbook of Medical Physiology, I have the same goal as for previous editions - to explain, in language easily understood by students, how the different cells, tissues, and organs of the human body work together to maintain life.[...]

A brief explanation is needed about several features of the 12th edition. Although many of the chapters have been revised to include new principles of physiology, the text length has been closely monitored to limit the book size so that it can be used effectively in physiology courses for medical students and health care professionals. Many of the figures have also been redrawn and are in full color. New references have been chosen primarily for their presentation of physiological principles, for the quality of their own references, and for their easy accessibility. The selected bibliography at the end of the chapters lists papers mainly from recently published scientific journals that can be freely accessed from the PubMed internet site at [...]. Use of these references, as well as cross-references from them, can give the student almost complete coverage of the entire field of physiology. The effort to be as concise as possible has, unfortunately, necessitated a more simplified and dogmatic presentation of many physiologic principles than I normally would have desired.

Format: Hardcover
Well, I read the last edition of Guyton and it was fair to midland in quality however the 12th edition is another story. For physiology and molecular biology the illustration need to grip the idea and leave a lasting mark. If the prose can do the same you have a marvelous textbook. Well both ideas and practices have been fulfilled with this edition. The chapters on cell structure are brilliant as well as renal and cardiac anatomy and physiology. This text left me reading 100 pages a night until I was complete with the text. The hasn't happened to me since the last edition of the The Cell. The fundamentals of each of the bodyies organs are so well explained and illustrated that alot of new information came my way. I have to say this text is the best medical text I have read in the last three years. You will find it an amazing and time well spent read. Enjoy.

Recently I had the opportunity to compare some (not all) of the cardiology chapters in Guyton versus Boron, head to head (I had both books open, side by side). There were a few things in Boron that were better illustrated and better explained. But overall I thought that Guyton was superior in its relevancy to clinical medicine.

I can't speak for any other topics in these books, only cardiology. For cardiology, in my opinion the clear winner was Guyton.

This is one of my favorite physiology texts, and provides the reader with comprehensive knowledge regarding nearly every conceivable physiology topic. The systems-based organization makes finding topics within this hefty text relatively easy; furthermore, the chapters are well-organized and concise, each covering very specific aspects of the topic at hand. As a consequence Guyton and Hall's text makes an excellent supplement to other, less-impressive physiology texts (and there are plenty). I highly recommend this book as an addition to any serious biology/pre-med/med. student's library.

I went through each and every chapter side by side and they're exactly the same content with better presentation.

Other than that, you may save your money for another book that you may need.

I have used several physiology texts, but Guyton is the one I keep coming back to. It is more in depth than any others, yet is straightforward and easy to read. Without this text I would never have learned physiology. Illustrations are great and enhance the text portion. Subjects are covered in detail individually, and also presented as integrated systems. Highly recommended whether this is the assigned text for your course or just for an extra reference. I return to my Guyton any time I need to brush up on something.

I bought the eBook for college, and honestly, it is a big disappointment. Previously I was required to use Vander's Human Physiology which was a fantastic book both in writing and the kindle format. Guyton's book is great content, but the organization on it is terrible in the ebook format. If you are getting this book, you should definitely get the hardcover edition. I am giving two stars because of the ebook formatting.

This book is great. It gives you all the information and explanation needed about the subjects and is very comprehensive. I'm a first year med. student and I love it. I must admit, it takes a while to read them, but by the time you're done reading a chapter, you will get a great understanding of the concepts.
