    The history of Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine dates back to 1950 when the first edition was published. It was the brainchild of reputed American physician Dr. Tinsley Randolph Harrison from Talladega, Alabama. He remained the editor-in-chief for the first five editions. The guiding principle of the book is the rock-solid foundation of clinical medicine mingled with the clear perception of pathophysiology.

    Dr. Harrison’s famous quote pertaining to the obligations and aspirations of a physician appeared in the first edition.

    Though the book has been envisaged for the junior doctors and interns, it is useful to the whole medical fraternity.

    The current eighteenth edition incorporates all the latest development in the field of internal medicine. The unparalleled definiteness and encyclopedic ambit is intact. The present edition boasts of several new vital concepts like Systems Biology in Health and Disease, The Human Microbiome, The Biology of Aging etc.

    One distinctive feature of the book is that it focuses on the geographical variations of diseases thus making it a truly global medical compendium.

    The embedded DVD is a true icing on the cake. The exclusive videos on the DVD serve as the visual knowledge powerhouse for the relevant concepts.

    Some of the chapters featured in the revamped eighteenth edition are Gait and Balance Disorders, Chest Discomfort, Tingling, and Sensory Loss, Global issues in Medicine, Confusion and Delirium, Screening and Prevention of Disease, Women's Health, The Safety and Quality of Health Care, Headache, Numbness, Medical Disorders during Pregnancy, Syncope, Principles of Clinical Pharmacology, Memory Loss, Pain: Pathophysiology and Management, Palliative and End-of-Life Care, Primary Progressive Aphasia, Memory Loss, Medical Evaluation of the Surgical Patient, Weakness and Paralysis, Decision-Making in Clinical Medicine, Video Library of Gait Disorders etc.

    a must read book

    the 18th e is finally here
    the book is a must-read whether you are pursuing masters in medicine or preparing for post grad entrance exams

    personally i feel this edition is overpriced; the 17th was available for sm 3500 bucks, but this time they have just doubled the price :(
    the dvd will be a bonus as it contains e chapters and image and videos of some topics

    great effort by the flipkart team for making it available online well before its release in bookstores.. thanks a lot

    The book is cheaper over amazon, of late you seems to be lagging behind amazon in race

    The book is cheaper over amazon, of late you seems to be lagging behind amazon in race, esp in the books area. The price deference is quite significant. and you have too many conditions of 100 words and star rating which you have made compulsory. and you dont provide options like amazon, that is this book or item is available cheaper somewhere. mate you are loosing out. pull up your socks

    unbeaten textbook on internal medicine

    i have been using this textbook since its 14th edition and edition after edition it gets better.With this edition, colourful pages and new classifications make it just incredible.This 18th edition has better font and puts less strain on eyes so one can read for longer period.

    The Ultimate. The final word in Medicine.

    This is one of those books, whose review, makes the reviewer (thats me) look good, since I am reviewing a book of such stature.
    The 18th Edition is much better than the previous blue version.
    One great factor is the DVD which contains chapters and photographs which are not in the book. Great for powerpoint presentations etc.
