    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.

      Verified Purchase

      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.
