Excerpt from Customer Reviews
As usual, one of the best..., August 13, 2004
Of course there are other textbooks out there that can be of use too, but Harrison's has always been the gold standard. Beware of people telling you to use more "interesting" material; Harrison's can only be boring to those who are either not really interested in learning internal medicine, or those who have just given up on trying to become the best practitioner they can be.
If you are interested in learning, then this is one of the books you must have.
