Oxford Dictionary of Medical Quotations Reviews

... absolutely fascinating ... It is impossible to open this book at any page without finding something that will interest or entertain you ... The rich and famous are certainly well represented in compilation and quite rightly so. Then there are real gems, including those from the most unlikely sources ... This book is a little treasure. The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, 128 If you wish to pepper a presentation or if you enjoy writing ... then you will find much in this volume to quote. I haven't counted them in detail, but I estimate there are in excess of 1500 quotations arranged in two ways: by author and by subject. This makes it very easy to locate a particular quotation, and as the title indicates they are all concerned in one way or another with various aspects of medicine ... This is an excellent book to have beside you when writing an article or preparing a lecture. The selection is scholarly and the presentation excellent. Dr Alan Emery ... clearly set out, sensibly sized and entertaining selection. The Lancet ... a spicy collection ... Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, Vol 96
