    From the Publisher:

    The aim of the author of this work has been to produce, in a volume of convenient size, an up-to-date Medical Dictionary, sufficiently full for the various requirements of all.... The book does not claim to be an encyclopedia; it is a dictionary, a concise and convenient word-book, aiming to furnish full definitions of the terms of medicine and kindred branches.... The author has sought a middle course between the large, unwieldy lexicon and the abridged students' dictionary, avoiding the disadvantages of each.

    Review:

    Encompassing the whole of medicine today, this dictionary provides comprehensiveness, accuracy, clarity and ease to use.
    'Anticancer Research'
