More than two million medical students, doctors and other health professionals from around the globe have owned a copy of "Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine". Today's readers rely on "Davidson's" to provide up-to-date detail of contemporary medical practice, presented in a style that is concise, beautifully illustrated and easy to read. "Davidson's" not only provides all of the factual knowledge required to practice medicine, but also explains it in the context of underlying principles, basic science and research evidence, and shows the reader how to apply their knowledge to manage patients who present with problems rather than specific diseases.

Davidson's is a world famous text, and after using it I know why. I love this book because after reading a section, you haven't just learned it, but you've understood it. The illustrations and diagrams throughout are better than in any alternative text and, to be honest, I don't know why I didn't use this book before. I now know that this book is the core textbook for me and will continue to be for many years to come.

Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine has somehow managed to get better with age - and the 21st edition carries on this tradition. While staying true to its foundations, it has brilliantly incorporated the latest in medical advances and treatment. The first chapter itself reminds us of the kind of textbook it aims to be - one encompassing all aspects of medicine, including "Good Medical Practice" as it is titled. The issues covered in this first chapter are important in.
