For the past twenty years the publishers of THE MERCK MANUAL, one of the most widely used sources of medical information in the world, realised that more and more copies of the guide were being purchased by people who were not healthcare professionals, despite the fact that it had never been advertised and was not written for public use. Recognising the public's increasing need for access to the same medical information doctors have, Merck responded with the HOME EDITION. This contained virtually all the information in the physician's version, but in easy-to-understand, everyday language, with a reader-friendly format. Since its publication three years ago the HOME EDITION has gone on to sell more than 2 million copies worldwide. Now Merck have updated the edition to cater for the changing medical environment. The new edition contains new chapters on subjects ranging from Gene Therapy Heart disease Cancer Nutrition problems Hormonal problems Men's, women's and children's health issues

Sexual Content: There is quite a bit of sexual content in the OB-GYN section and the genitourinary section as well as some explicit diagrams/illustrations in these sections that some may find inappropriate or disturbing. I would not recommend this book for anyone under 18 years of age.
