Guyton versus Boron,
This review is from: Guyton and Hall Textbook of Medical Physiology (Hardcover)
Recently I had the opportunity to compare some (not all) of the cardiology chapters in Guyton versus Boron, head to head (I had both books open, side by side). There were a few things in Boron that were better illustrated and better explained. But overall I thought that Guyton was superior in its relevancy to clinical medicine.
I can't speak for any other topics in these books, only cardiology. For cardiology, in my opinion the clear winner was Guyton.

Boron has some good clinical correlates, but it also has too much detail for a med student. If Guyton took Boron's illustrations, they might really have the ultimate physiology text.
