Poorly written This and other textbooks put out by Lewis and Mosby are combersome, wordy, unorganized, and unprofessionally written. I have been subjected to two other texts written by this author. I am a self learner and have read many texts. Some are good and some are bad. This one is in the bad category. ...more info
Very helpful resource I utilize this book more than any other textbook required for my program. It is a great resource for careplanning, understanding the ramifications of procedures, and supplemental reading for particularly challenging subjects. As a nursing student in a baccalaureate program, I am inundated with complex and intricate explanations for disease processes. When I need a straight forward, simple answer, this is where I go. A great starting point!...more info

Save your back... get the two-book version This same book is available in a two-book set. I highly recommend the split version so you don't have to carry one, huge, heavy book around all semester!...more info

Poorly prepared textbook... I have just started reading this book (7th edition) for class and came across an error that really surprised me on page 536: "Acute viral rhinitis (common cold or acute coryza) is caused by an adenovirus that invades the upper respiratory tract and often accompanies an upper respiratory infection (URI)." No mention is made of any other viruses that cause the common cold. Indeed, there are more than 200 known causes of acute viral rhinitis with the most prevalent being: rhinovirus, coronavirus, respiratory synctial virus, adenovirus, parainfluenza, influenza, enterovirus, metapneumovirus, and other unknown viruses (source: Lancet). I am thinking the authors wanted to highlight the fact that adenoviruses are more likely than some other viruses (e.g., rhinovirus) to lead to complications, but failed to do so before the book was printed and/or a writer that knew nothing about microbiogy just slapped down adenovirus related to the common cold (the most frequent manifestation of the adenovirus is the common cold --but it is not the most frequent virus causing the common cold).
I can't help but wonder what other errors I am going to discover as I continue to read this book --and what errors I won't recognize.
Additionally, as another critic mentioned, the pages are terribly thin.
Overall, I am giving this book a one as I think substantial errors should not be in a textbook, especially one that is in the 7th edition. ...more info
excellent Book was exactly as described and arrived on time in good pakaging and in suberb condition. I would defenately purchase from amazon in the future....more info
Great I am very happy with this book. I know students that got the two volumes and they are happy, too. The information in the 7th edition is presented clearly. There are tables for everything...medications, diagnosis, illnesses, etc. Farely easy to read. Can't go wrong with it. I, also, purchased the companion, it is good for looking up things quickly and doing patho. I am now getting the study guide, as are many of my classmates. I have made the investment to do well in nursing school and this book was worth it....more info

Great Medsurg Book I am giving this book four stars only because the pages are thin and the material is somewhat boring to read. I heard from most people that Iggy is better. Anyway, Lewis is a very good book but it is dry and blah. Also whenever I highlight the pages, the highlighter would bleed through. I paid almost a $100 for this but it looked cheaply made. ...more info
