Editorial Reviews


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

As of yet I have only read 900 pages of this work. At roughly 5000 pages, most will not read it cover-to-cover, but I like a challenge. While much can be found on the Internet, there is no substitute for something at hand that can be leafed through from one discussion to another. It is harder linking Internet discussions and references, though not impossible. What is lost in the process is being up to date. The large work is reasonably up to date given the logistics of editorial function with a majority of subjects having references 2002 and beyond. What makes this work quite good, as in prior editions (having previously read the 2 volume 3rd edition) is the readability. For whatever the reason, American medical textbooks seem to be written in a much more dense format with a less fluid and conversational style, at least in my opinion. Not all chapters are uniform in this respect, but most do not drag for the reader used to at least some Scientific writing and with a reasonable knowledge of the jargon used.
Editorial mistakes are few with only 2 noted in my readings thus far. Even these are relatively minor [1-Contributors: Dr. Bernier -Harvard Medical School affiliates are not in Baltimore, Md. and 2- in discussion of Actinomycoses, a commensal is noted as Actinomyces actinomycetescomitans, though the defunct usage is Actinobacilus actinomycetescomitans and the proper genus is now called Aggregatobacilus actinomycetescomitans.] Errors in a reference work such as this are important, so that I have specified those I have noted clearly here.
The publishers have high quality illustrations and have colored features matching those in Harrison's, Kelly's or Cecil-Loeb.

I know I didn't get the latest version but as a medical student that hardly matters. To me, Oxford is by far the best medical text that you can get. The massive 3 volume text covers EVERYTHING from the cellular to systemic levels.
There's a habit for people to get books associated with olny their level of learning (the physiology books for first years, the clinical medicine books for second years etc...) but this covers all of it.

Format: Hardcover
The chapter on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis ("chronic fatigue syndrome") is very inaccurate. Instead of boring you, I will just point out one salient fact which is emblematic of Prof. Michael Sharpe's approach: the chapter is included in the psychiatric chapter when it has been proven over and over again to be an internal medicine disease, especially neurological and immunological.

The editors should know better than to allow Prof. Sharpe to write the chapter since his writings on ME are well-known in the field to have been discredited innumerable times.

It may seem harsh to give the whole book only two stars since in the main it is a solid work and certainly comprehensive. I certainly think that is a really good point. However, I have decided to give it two stars since the type of blatant misrepresentation that is included here has caused a tremendous amount of iatrogenic morbidity and even some mortality in ME patients.

I am very eager to give the book five-stars, because in most other respects, it really deserves it. I have learned a lot from it. Please substitute an accurate chapter on ME and I would be delighted to give it five-stars and evangelize for Oxford's. The essential documents on ME (with more than enough information to fill a chapter here) are:

- the 2003 Canadian ME/CFS Consensus Criteria

- the 2010 validated research version of the above CCC by Prof. Leonard Jason

- the 2011 International ME Criteria

- the 2012 International Association of CFS/ME Primer for Physicians on ME/CFS

Unfortunately Amazon does not allow me to insert hyperlinks for the above.

Please contact me if you wish further information or if you wish to find an author who will draft an accurate chapter for you free of charge. Thank you.
