Review from previous edition: "Over the past 3 weeks, it has had pride of place on my office table, usually with one or other volume open at a key page. 'Cor', is the typical response of colleagues entering the room, 'Got a new textbook I see'. At L275 and with metallic sheen on the cover as standard, this is the intellectual equivalent of a Jaguar coupe and inspires similar levels of envy." --Family Practice, August 2003
"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, October 2003
"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, June 2003
"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
"...the text does not lose sight of the clinical implications of the science being presented, in keeping with the underlying philosophy of the book that the material must be of practical value to the physician." --From the foreword by Professor Sir Aaron Klug
