I happen to love the subject and I am willing to spend extra time reading this book over more "high-yield" books that provide information that is more clinically relevant or aimed at boards and such.
I think the best time to read this is during undergrad (or anytime before med school) when you have the time. In med school it probably is too much text. If you are indeed in undergrad or have time off before med school, I read this book concurrently with Rosenthal's Medical Biochemistry: Human Metabolism in Health and Disease and found a lot of good harmony between the two.
The Guyton and Hall book is excellent, and, given that the newest edition has been said to focus on the length (assumingly shortening it), it's possible this edition is better than the 12th. It's thorough, has enough repetition of primary concepts to allow you to continually review the fundamental principles (for example, it will mention that Aldosterone increases Na+ absorption and increases K+ secretion in Renal Physiology each time it comes up so that you will not forget it when you are finished with the chapter), which is thoroughly pleasing because it is very easy to forget the value of repetition for students.
I would recommend this absolutely!
This is definitely one of the positives for getting this book.
One thing that would be helpful would be a summary at the end of the chapter, or review questions.... and not in a separate review book.....
