Another Masterpiece of Scientific Literature,
This review is from: Guyton and Hall Textbook of Medical Physiology, 12e (Hardcover)
Well, I read the last edition of Guyton and it was fair to midland in quality however the 12th edition is another story. For physiology and molecular biology the illustration need to grip the idea and leave a lasting mark. If the prose can do the same you have a marvelous textbook. Well both ideas and practices have been fulfilled with this edition. The chapters on cell structure are brilliant as well as renal and cardiac anatomy and physiology. This text left me reading 100 pages a night until I was complete with the text. The hasn't happened to me since the last edition of the The Cell. The fundamentals of each of the bodyies organs are so well explained and illustrated that alot of new information came my way. I have to say this text is the best medical text I have read in the last three years. You will find it an amazing and time well spent read. Enjoy.

Jeffrey E. Ehrlich MD says:
Serge, a doctor should write better. "Fair to midland" is the name of a band. The expression is "fair to middling." "bodyies" is properly written, "body's" as it is the possessive of "body." "[U]ntil I was complete with the text." would never have been accepted by any English professor I had. Try "...until I had completed the text."
