Kumar & Clark's Clinical Medicine 8 builds on the prize-winning formula that won the first prize in the BMA Book Awards Medicine Category in 2010 (7th edition) and 2006 (6th edition).
'This book is comprehensive, student friendly (if still intimidating in size!) and covers such a vast breadth of knowledge. It still remains the primary 'must-have' text book of any budding doctor, or qualified one at that. This book is stunning in its breadth and in its ease of use. It still remains as the 'gold-standard' thorough guide to clinical medicine its forefathers were.' BMA Judges 2010
'This is one of a select few books that deserves to be in most doctors' personal possession and it's as simple as that. ...' Dr Harry Brown.

'This is the eighth edition of Kumar and Clark in 15 years, which is a remarkable achievement and testament to the authors' dedication - the title of Kumar and Clark is now legendary. It is regarded by many as the 'must have' textbook for budding and qualified doctors and the 'gold standard'when compared against competitor textbooks. Previous editions have been applauded for being both comprehensive and student 'friendly'. Does the latest edition live up to the high expectation?The short answer is yes: this edition includes much that is new including sections on protein synthesis, energy production and stem cells, 16 new contributing authors and a significant increase in online chapters to reflect the interests of the expanded international advisory board. This expansion demonstrates the burgeoning nature of medicine and the challenge to medical students and doctors in training to identify how much and when such knowledge is required." British Journal of Hospital Medicine, February 2013 "This is one of the best medicine books available for U.K. clinicians with many ideal features appropriate for clinicians worldwide as well."- Vincent Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences) 5 star Doody Rating!
