4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy going, but a great reference text June 22, 2000
When any medical student is studying, they usually end up with a copy of this book.
It's BIG - over 1200 pages of the tiniest possible readable writing, and covers vitually every disease in clincal medicine.
You'll find yourself referring to this one a lot, as it's the de facto medical bible, it's a wonderful reference text.
However, I'm not sure you'll want to learn from it directly, as the writing is disjointed from chapter to chapter (it was written by many authors), and it just doesn't "read" well. I certainly find an entire chapter at a time too much to bear in one sitting.
That said, you'll still want this book - the breadth of chapters is amazing, and it's hard to argue with its authority!

4.0 out of 5 stars A standard clinical reference that is a must have... August 24, 2000
I purchased this book to find out how clinical issues were taught in medical schools. To my surprise I found the topics quite interesting and comprehensible. The writing is turgid and the font is quite small. Yet, when some health issue comes up, Harrison's is my first stop. I just pick a topic at random and go through the article. Occasionally, if a term does not make sense to me I check with my copy of Steadman's. I truly believe that this book makes for a good family medical reference if one is willing to put in some effort. Well worth the shelf space in my library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harrison's keeps being an authority in medicine June 18, 2002
This book is a medical tradition, and it is as important to doctors as their stethoscope.
It is very complete, there is no doubt about it. Every subject of medicine is covered, and for a reference book is a must-have. It is also written in an easy-to-read way, but some chapters are more difficult to understand than others, and like a good meal, in excess it can get heavy and occasionally become a brick, so slow-reading is advised. Also worth to mention are the atlases, that give a lot of pictographic information.
I would recommend it only as a reference book, because for the USMLE, or as a course textbook, it is impossible to read it all, especially if time is scarce.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the Bible January 29, 2002
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Now the theory is behind you and you are into Physical exams and History taking and diagnostics. This book is a must for you. In 397 Chapters it tells you about almost all human illnesses. Each chapter starts with theory (physiology), History taking, continues with Diagnosis and Treatment, it even tell you how to approach the patient what to look and what to disregard. Almost 2600 pages, takes two to carry, requires own stand in your home like Webster's dictionary but have more information compared to other 2600 page books due to fine print and unfortunately very minimal pictures or diagrams. You might want to get complete with pocket book edition for handiness when you need it. This book will not help in your diagnosis but when you think you had diagnosed than you can refer to this to see to confirm or rethink.

3.0 out of 5 stars Outdated, but accurate
I bought this book used for a very low price. I didn't realize that it was a two-volume set, and this is only one of the two books, so make sure you know what you're ordering.

I use this in medical school as a quick reference, but the updated version would be preferable. The new version is probably worth the price.
