FWIW this is the book that was used in every school I've had a preclinical in. I've taught out of it for an honors class, and have found it to be a great book. The only problem I may have with it is the format of pages, it's all in black and red. To me that is pretty boring, I like colorful textbooks. However, content wise it's a great book.
