Review by Vincent J Felitti, MD

Summer 2005 - Volume 9 Number 3

For the past half-century, the teaching of internal medicine in America has been dominated by two widely recognized textbooks: Cecil Textbook of Medicine,1 and Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine.2 Serious competition has just arrived upon the scene with the two-volume set, ACP Medicine.3 Not only is this outgrowth of the former Scientific American Medicine a heavyweight competitor in its own right, it has the special advantage of being an official publication of the American College of Physicians (ACP). Moreover, the ACP promises that it will reissue the bound set every 18 months to keep it current. Alternative formats exist and are to be updated more frequently.
