Oh my gosh...for anyone out there in nursing school, if you have been told this is your text, please accept my deepest sympathy. Aside from the microscopic print, I have never read anything so verbose in my life. This is the only book that can consistently use 500 words to describe blowing your nose. Hang in there.

I like how the intro has pictures of the authors traveling, playing tennis, and gardening...stuff you totally are not doing if you are reading this book. Oh, goodreads wants to know the date I finished this book...don't make me laugh.

This was probably the only book I ever actually looked at in nursing school, and it continues to be used as a reference today. It's very wordy, but there's a lot of good information in this book on various disease processes and nursing care. It will forever be in my reference library.

My big green tome of how to manage my patients. I still read it and study from it and it's been almost a year since I left school!

I add this cause I think this book will be taking control of my life for at least another semester...just in case you are all curious about what I've been up to. ;)

Currently I'm trying to read it... Or at least I should be. This print is so tiny and I find myself lost in the amount of knowledge,

So far, quite informative, but a kind of convoluted. Not as bad as Understanding Pathophysiology. Understanding, my ass.

This is the book that will haunt my every waking moment from now until I graduate. Get used to the look of it; it'll be on my "currently reading" list until about Dec. 11, 2008.

I feel I should get "credit" because I'm not ignoring Studs' lovely and inspiring book in favor of tv; I'm torn from it by this heap of learning.
