    KINDLE Version is USELESS I basically agree with all the reviews of this book. However, I would strongly NOT recommend the KINDLE version of this text. The ability to search the text is very poor. Most text searches require very precise wording to locate an item of interest and will generally find the first occurrence not the primary entry that the paperback index references.The only option is therefore to start at the beginning of a relevant chapter and troll through trying to find the reference you’re looking for. Hardly helpful in a book that averaged around 2000 pages.Get the paperback version. Kindle reference texts aren’t usable. Perhaps iPad will do it better…..

    Just what I needed! This is my favorite book to study from. It gives you the essentials to pretty much any health related problem. Ok, so it’s not Harrison’s book of internal medicine. But it is small enough that I can carry it without getting a hernia.

    Excellent annual review. The Lange CMDT series is worth the money. Nothing in depth, but authoritative and concise. I use this text often in my teaching medical students in China.
