I knew I should have consulted Merck.
What? An authoritative medical textbook on the cheap?
Yes, this dandy little ready reference book, revered by healthcare professionals, condenses the knowledge of over 350 foremost medical specialists and gives you a handle on all but the most obscure medical conditions. Now well over a century old, this concise compendium of medical wisdom is The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy, 20th edition. Although Merck is written for physicians and medical professionals, it is equally cherished by hypochondriacs and can be useful as well to medical malpractice attorneys.
This expanded 20th edition of Merck was just published in 2018 with excellent reviews. You can read some of these at Amazon.com.
As it is a not-for-profit endeavor of the Merck company, The Merck
Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy is, without a doubt, the most
economical medical reference book on the planet. Although the list
price for Merck is $79.95, you can purchase it for less at Amazon. Merck is also available online, but this Web
version isn't nearly as engaging.
