You have a FABULOUS book! I recommend it to ALL the students I teach in step 1 physiology for Kaplan and it is the book for my own course in Physiology as the Co-Director of the Physiology Course for Touro COM in the Great New York City!
The clarity, brevity and consistent excellence on every page is truly admirable. As I sit here this evening re-writing the Kaplan Step 3 Q-Bank I just had to write to expess my admiration for a truly outstanding job.
Honestly, I grew up on Guyton but they have so deviated and so has Boron.You can understand physiology and actually have those books suck knowledge OUT of your brain.The length is fantastic and I love the extra color in the new version. You need me to film a course on your book. Woo Hoo! Seriously, you can prep for step one, get what you need for the hospital floors and get background for research.
I hope to meet in person someday but in the meantime, The Fisch sends you a big hug!!!
Warm and Fuzzies!

I see myself using it as a reference during second year as well. It's soooo easy to read. She gets to the point. I need to understand what's going on and then apply it clinically. I am not interested in learning about every single detail to go out a develop a chemical marker for a disease process... otherwise I'd be a doctoral student and not a medical student.
And that's Harry Potter. Seriously, reading this book is a pleasure. And what's even better after reading it you remember most of what you've read. For your med school Dr Costanzo's book is probably all you need. Guyton is great for sinking into details, but for plain understanding of physiological concepts Costanzo is better (and it takes 10 times less time, which is good as there're other subjects you need to learn:)
Why look anywhere else if there's Costanzo?
I am a big fan of physio books. I have 4 of them, and this by far is the best. The only thing that I would say is a short coming of the book is that there are certain topics that you might not expect to find under a particular section. All the information is there but maybe a few times you may have to look in a different section of the book than you would have expected to find the information.
