Editorial Reviews


`The new edition of the Oxford Textbook of Medicine has done well to present a distinguished array of contributors More importantly, the editors have managed to present a vast amount of information in an easy to read style and format. A selected student's opinion found many chapters in this new edition to be a definite improvement on the standard North American textbook in style, language, and presentation, particularly those dealing with medical problems in developing countries. The pictures included in the textbooks make many sections easy to read and comprehend.' The Lancet

`The initial chapters on the science and art of medicine and on ethics are impressive and important reading for all physicians. Advances in critical review and evidence-based medicine are given due recognition in the second section of the book, which deals with the foundations of modern medicine. Indeed, this edition skilfully integrates evidence with expert clinical experience to provide an informed approach I must congratulate the editors for recognising the presence of alternative medicine and including a separate section on this topic.' The Lancet

`It is an invaluable source of information, well written by experts in their respective fields. It will be the first reference source I choose when questions arise as I continue to practice medicine.' Doody's Journal

`Can we have a broader view of ourselves again as gatekeepers of the health of populations? This is an issue that is intelligently addressed The coverage of the global burden of disease, preventive medical strategies, health policy, and costing are new and welcome additions. I found these sections to be especially thought-provoking and believe that they are valuable reading for all budding medical graduates, teachers, and researchers.' The Lancet

`I would certainly vote for having the new edition in my department library.' The Lancet

`This is the intellectual equivalent of a Jaguar coupe and inspires similar levels of envy.' Family Practice

`The Oxford Textbook of Medicine has been regarded a sound reference book for the past twenty years, and this new, even more comprehensive, three volume edition just has to be one of the most authoritative textbooks available.' Association of Lawyers for Children

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By K. Schultz on January 6, 2010
I bought the Oxford Textbook of Medicine in order to get a comprehensive and useful source of information for my practice as clinician and for my research - these three volumes do not supply me with that. For those interested in good sources for clinical help and advice, and a good source for references in scientific work and writing I instead recommend the following books with online access from Elsevier:

Cecil Medicine (978-1416028055)
Conn's Current Therapy (978-1416066422)
Ferri's Color Atlas and Text of Clinical Medicine (978-1416049197)
Ferri's Clinical Advisor 2010 (978-0323056090)
Current Clinical Medicine (978-1416066439)
