"From the outset this dictionary was appealing. The illustrations enhanced the explanations greatly and lead to a deeper understanding of meanings. Photographs also increase the reader’s knowledge and give real visualisations of what to expect from particular pathophysiologies. The appendices found in the dictionary are both comprehensive and extremely useful."

In the family, and the closest connections to the family, we are having, or have had, cases concerning Cancer, Nerves (physical), Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, and Thyroid, so it's especially concerning these that I've made my own lexica now having 100 A4 sides.
But parallel to the buying of this book I also bought the book "Alternative Medicine. The Definitive Guide", as we during history again and again has seen that the right solution concerning medicine and health not was accepted during many of the first years. For example the case between the C vitamin and the English navy back 200 years ago.
The Moby's Dictionary is having good description by each headword, and besides excellent photos, some showing cases which for at civilian can be a bit hard to look at. And the start of the book is excellent, as we from side A2 to A3 on each side are getting many colored drawings, without doubt, showing all of what we are put together, and with extremely many names put on.
One more reason for making my own small lexica, is that I in this lexica also, opposite to in the Moby's, are putting in the details about all the actual pills and drugs, and besides drawing showing the chemical reactions.
But again, the Moby's Dictionary is an excellent book with the correct combinations of writing, drawings and pictures.
