Meet my new baby, his name is Harrison, Harry for short, and weighs an amazing 9.5lbs. He will be the death of me, let me just say 2700 pages, 8 weeks.

The most comprehensive beautiful Medicine book ever!
Also in my Indian med school,it was like a status symbol!Lol
Like if you didn't read from Harrison,you were just a lazy lower class student who didn't care about her education!
Then there were Harrison fanatics too,who would insist on reading everything from Harrison,kinda annoying cheer girls/fangirls haha
But this book is a Bible of Medicine,also WWF World heavyweight champion in the world of books :-)
2 volumes of this book are now about 10 lbs

Recommends it for: nobody!
کتابی که پزشکها همیشه میخوانند و یا نمیخوانند! رفرنس استاندارد و قرآن پزشکها!
مایه رنج دائمی آنها!

This is a great clinical reference.
Another gold-standard, this monster weighs in at about 4.5 kg or so (9 or 10 pounds, if you want to be a normal person instead of a med student). I know for a fact I'll be looking stuff up in this guy long after I've graduated. Unlike most textbooks (but exactly like all the thickest medical ones), Harrison's is really a series of smaller articles, arranged in chapter form. A really, REALLY long series. Any medical problem you can think of is here, in more detail than your own health-care practi ...more

Recommends it for: all medical students
This has to be the silliest review of all but i love this book! I know its a textbook but every time i read it i learn something new...every medical student should read it! the writing is so precise and clear...the charts, diagrams and figures add to the understanding of the its a gospel in medicine...u cannot be held wrong if u quote from harrison!
Ini adalah salah satu dari buku kelas "berat" yang saya punya(literally) karena beratnya hampir 4 atau 4.5 kg, dan sulit sekali untuk dibawa-bawa.
Buku yang terkenal karena "mbah"nya buku penyakit dalam.
Selalu menjadi andalan dari dulu jamannya masih sekolah hingga sekarang untuk mencari referensi dan mungkin untuk dijadikan senjata kalau lagi berantem sama suami :P

A must-have for medical students. No I haven't read the whole thing (though I know one guy, a surgical resident no less, who claims to have read it through 3 times) but I still use it, even with my uptodate subscription =)

Lumayan membantu kalo ingin tahu tentang suatu penyakit. Meski kadang blank juga,(kadang? sering barangkali?.. hehehe) habis bahasanya dokter banget..
Buku penyakit dalem yg bagus. Gampang dibaca n detail. Tp sayang berhubung tinggal di indonesia jd krg pas gt m epidny. Salah satu modal saya bt koas interna
It's wonderful
It's amazing
It's fascinating
It's a the USA brand!

God help us to read, understand and remember it of course !
