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 standardwhen 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."
