    • Very informational!

      I love this book, as most do. You can get lost in it for hours. The only thing that I didnt realize is that this book was cheaper because it is a much smaller book with smaller print, which is completly fine!

    • Merck Manual Home Edition- A must have

      This book is a must have for all households. It is an amazing reference book to have at your fingertips. It covers all diseases, conditions, injuries, minor and major. The language is written for the layperson. It tells you the condition, symptoms, treatment. It doesn't replace your doctor, of course, but it is a great way to arm yourself with information. Do you have an elderly relative who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's? Did your lab work come back showing a low potassium level? UTI? Do you have hypertension? Does your kid have the chicken pox? My first copy got so much use I had to get another. I highly recommend it.
