A revised and updated edition of the World's most widely used medical reference, The Merck Manual of Medical Information, Second Home Edition.

For more than 100 years doctors have been coming to us for advice. Now you can, too.

The Merck Manual has traditionally provided exclusive, up-to-the-minute information to doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. Now, with the special Home Edition, the general public can access virtually the same critical data contained in the physician's version—but in everyday language and a reader-friendly format.

With contributions from nearly 200 internationally respected medical experts, this fully revised edition offers vital, easy-to-understand information about almost every known medical issue, including:

· AIDS
· cancer
· eating, digestive, and nutrition disorders
· heart disease
· mental illness
· pediatric care -- including a new chapter on early-childhood development
· sexual dysfunction
· terminal illness
· viruses and infections

...and much more. Featuring original illustrations and diagrams, an A-Z listing of brand-name and generic drugs, and an appendix of medical resources, The Merck Manual Home Edition is published as a not-for-profit service by Merck, a world leader in breakthrough medical discoveries with a long commitment to making the world a healthier place.

Review:

Sherwin Noland, M.D. Clinical Professor of Surgery, Yale School of Medicine; author of "How We Die, Doctors, and The Wisdom of the Body"Merck has accomplished what I had thought was impossible -- to produce a clear, readable explanation of the normal and diseased functions of the human body....This is a remarkable contribution....Doctors should encourage their patients to own it.

Jane E. Brody "The New York Times" The most useful [medical guide] of all...consumer friendly...clever cross-referencing...includes topics missing from many competitors.
