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

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

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

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 topic...plus its a gospel in medicine...u cannot be held wrong if u quote from harrison!

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 =)

My parent's bought this book for me when I was a child and it just made me fall in love with Internal Medicine. You can't go to bed without skimming through a section.
