Textbooks

It seems to be the time of year for the publishers Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins to send out new versions of their textbooks to us lecturers. For those of you interested, Moore’s Essential Clinical Anatomy is now on edition 3, Langman’s Medical Embryology is on edition 10 (some nice additions in there), and there’s a new Snell anatomy text (I think): Clinical Anatomy by Systems. My shelves are beginning to bow under the strain of so many books. I’m also reviewing some new genetics and child health texts, which makes a pleasant change from my usual reading of the last couple of years.
