About the Author:

Merriam-Webster has been creating America s best-known dictionaries and reference works to the highest standards of quality and reliability for more than 170 years.

From Library Journal:

Who could complain about this dictionary when it costs less than ten dollars? Running to 35,000 words, and two-and-a-half inches in width, this is similar but not identical to the Merriam Webster's Medical Dictionary available free on the web from Johns Hopkins Health Information (http://www.intelihealth.com). Definitions are brief; the longest, at about 70 words, are for such words as dura mata, radiation, and depression. Procedures like hysterosalpingography are defined, but proton beam therapy is not. Mitochondrion is defined, but apoptosis (programmed cell death) is not. Virtually all entries include a pronunciation guide, ranging from eponymous diseases, such as Saint Anthony's fire, to commonly found words, such as lung, and acronyms like CABG. The text also defines many veterinary terms, such as scrapie (but not bovine spongiform encephalitis, commonly called BSE or mad cow disease) as well as the most prescribed generic and brand names of drugs; for example, diazepam has a cross reference to Valium. There are no illustrations, and though the book is nicely bound, the quality of the paper is low. Clearly not meant to take the place of such standard works as Dorland's Illustrated Medical Dictionary (Saunders, 1994) or Stedman's Medical Dictionary (Williams & Wilkins, 1995), this dictionary is recommended as a quick reference for school libraries, for public libraries where dictionaries are in constant demand, and wherever web access is problematic.AMartha Stone, Massachusetts General Hosp.
