This is the single best medical book I have ever read. If you are a doctor, no matter your specialty, you should read it.

Well, basically I added this one because I have been using it and will probably continue to use it as a nurse in the Cardiovascular ICU. Unless you're a nurse or you really want to know a lot of pointless info about what's going on in an ICU environment, I don't recommend this to the layperson. However, if you are a health care professional, this book provides a lot of information and is easy to understand if you understand nursing and the ICU setting.
Okay I know this is pretty geeky, but it is a must read for my profession. Actually I found this book very readable. The topics are huge, but the chapter sizes are manageable. I could come home from a busy day in the ICU and read a chapter to two to learn WHY I did what I did that day. This is a book I will return to frequently during the rest of my residency and fellowship.
Essential for any critical care enthusiast, not just surgeons but medical ICU folks, nurses, etc. Very easy-to-understand, good use of diagrams and good references at the end of each chapter.
I love this book. Best nursing book I've ever owned (and I own quite a few). I consult this book regularly. Highly recommend it for any ICU nurse who always likes to ask "why?".

This is an excellent book. People going to the hospital should carry one of these even if they cant read it. All nurses should have a copy.
So incredibly readable, Dan Marino has got real talent. This should be required reading for any IM resident or physician.
Fantastic book. Well written, easy to read, the best ICU reference for residents on critical care I have come across.

Marino is awesome and tells it like it is.
My favorite 'school' book right now
