okayReviewed in Canada on 29 October 2013
It was okay. The only Thing that was a bit annoying was that the book I received had pen marks and highlighted portions throughout. Apart from that the book was resourceful
like it says, for the health professionReviewed in the United States on 22 May 2015
I bought this textbook for a required course at a university. it features plenty of pictures, graphs and diagrams to explain diseases and illness one would encounter in a health profession. furthermore, the author assumes the reader already understands basic anatomy and physiology to understand the textbook. therefore, it is likely you can get "stuck" and puzzled by a description of a illness.
good info but a little frustratingReviewed in the United States on 23 October 2014
Required reading for my PA education. The book's level of detail is excellent and precise. My only issue with it is that the way it separates information can be frustrating-- it definitely has the feel of a later edition which was not streamlined into the prior one. As if the authors said "OK, new information, copy and paste it here but don't backtrack to relate it over there". For example, you'll read about the types of cytokines released by one protein, but then three pages later it will add one or two out of the blue. Your best bet when studying with this unique book is to read the entire chapter or section you're concerned with first, then go back and start outlining.
