"Excellent dictionary!" according to Lynelle. In 2001 I bought the 19th edition while enrolled in an alternative medicine college course; when I saw that the latest edition was available I ordered it post haste. It is fully 200 pages longer, and has, of course, the latest references and terminology; also better quality photographssome not too pleasant to look at, but, well, after all The appendices are very informative, and I think this is a great dictionary for any family; not just for people in the medical field, or med students. And if you do buy it, don't pass over the introduction; it's worth a few minutes' read. Often . Okay but not what I was looking for. If you are looking for a compact medical dictionary to carry in your backpack and take to class this is not it. Hopefully the pictures I have posted will keep someone else from making the same mistake I did.This book is great for keeping at your desk at home to look up terms, phrases and even procedures. The type is crystal clear and easy to read. It is thumb indexed in 3 letter groupings. The key words are printed in bold san-serif type for easy scanning down the page. Many illustrations are in color and there are color photos as well. There are tables, charts and graphs to help. Great Reference I am taking courses pursuant to joining the Medical Coding profession. Unfortunately, the texts (from Pearson) are woefully inadequate with regard to a glossary and definitions. After using a few of the references available at a local library, I decided to purchase the Taber's and am very pleased with the thoroughness of the explanations, amount of detail, quality of the illustrations and photographs, and the additional opportunity to use their on-line references.A solid reference with a number of pluses.
