For more than 100 years doctors have been coming to us for advice. Now you can, too.

The Merck Manual has traditionally provided exclusive, up-to-the-minute information to doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. Now, with the special Home Edition, the general public can access virtually the same critical data contained in the physician's version--but in everyday language and a reader-friendly format.

With contributions from nearly 200 internationally respected medical experts, this fully revised edition offers vital, easy-to-understand information about almost every known medical issue, including:

* cancer
* eating, digestive, and nutrition disorders
* heart disease
* mental illness
* pediatric care -- including a new chapter on early-childhood development
* sexual dysfunction
* terminal illness
* viruses and infections

...and much more. Featuring original illustrations and diagrams, an A-Z listing of brand-name and generic drugs, and an appendix of medical resources, The Merck Manual Home Edition is published as a not-for-profit service by Merck, a world leader in breakthrough medical discoveries with a long commitment to making the world a healthier place.
