This well-known, widely used desk reference is gradually coming to resemble, in size and weight, a standard textbook of internal medicine. For its scope, however, it is concise. The references are almost entirely to journal articles published since 1970. Editors of future editions could hold dimensions down by cutting out mechanism summaries and clinical descriptions that can be found in standard textbooks. The text could then deal almost solely with diagnostic methods and with treatment.
