Pressestimmen\nThe Oxford Dictionary of Medical Quotations presents a wonderfully entertaining and eclectic range of quotations covering all aspects of medicine through the ages. It couples profound statements from famous scientists with witty one-liners from the likes of Woody Allen and Spike Milligan. Packed with hundreds of quotations, it is a book that anyone in the medical profession, or with an interest in health, will find invaluable as a source of reference and considerable entertainment. Anticancer Research No.25 The reader will find a wealth of material to browse in this Oxford Dictionary; it should charm and amuse, and also provide material for use in speeches or articles for publication. British Journal of Anaesthesia This incisive, rather punchy little book is packed with such quotes, making a highly engaging read... This book has its rightful place - within easy reach - on the bookshelves of all health professionals and social commentators. It will add colour, depth and a sense of place in history to your thought processes, presentations and eventual quotes of your own. Palliative Medicine This is a wonderfully stimulating and entertaining collection of quotations covering all aspects of medicine, from antiquity to the present. You can browse, reflect, smile, and even laugh out loud... Wonderful holiday reading! IAHPC Website 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 It's no laughing matter going to the doctor but at least this collection of cracking quotes can make the visit more bearable. Northern Echo 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 \n\nKurzbeschreibung\nThe Oxford Dictionary of Medical Quotations presents a wonderfully entertaining and eclectic range of quotations, covering all aspects of medicine through the ages.

A few examples: I'm not afraid to die. I just don't want to be there when it happens. - Woody Allen. The only cure for sea-sickness is to sit on the shady side of an old brick church in the country. - English sailors' proverb. The nurse should never neglect to attend to the patient's bodily hygiene on the pretext that such measures do little good and are not urgent. - Florence Nightingale. , ISBN-13: 9780198565987

einige Lagerspuren Editorial Reviews\n\nFrom Publishers Weekly\nBollywood, gangsta, big hair and D'oh ( la Homer Simpson) are among the 3,000 new words in this latest edition of the renowned dictionary. The two-volume set offers over 33% of the complete Oxford English Dictionary, with over a half million definitions, the same emphasis on etymology and the evolving usage of a word through history. Examples of usage, presented in specially tinted boxes, are taken from great works of literature, period newspapers and political oratory, with sources ranging from Gibbon to S.J. Perelman; there are 83,500 illustrative quotes from 7,000 authors. The new volumes also boast contributions from the United States, India, South Africa and the rest of the English-speaking world. And no need for a magnifying glass-the page design is clean and remarkably easy to read, with the featured words in large, bold print. With the major ad/promo Oxford plans for this title, expect vigorous sales, and for years to come.\nCopyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.\n\nFrom Booklist\nConsidering it was 20 years between the third and fourth editions of this work, this abridgement of Oxford's flagship OED after fewer than 10 years is most welcome. Given some of the advance publicity and advertisements, Oxford is clearly aware that to win in the dictionary wars (at least in the eyes of the general public), it is necessary to emphasize newer words added to the dictionary. The general coverage of the volumes remains largely unchanged from the fourth edition, however, even retaining the previous edition's preface and adding a briefer preface for the current edition. Still, some welcome changes have been made.\n\nLike the previous edition, this work sets out the main meanings and semantic developments of words current at any time between 1700 and the present day. Words such as achtande, knottle, or pompal (all present in OED Online) that are obsolete, obsolete variations, or rare are therefore not included. Words obsolete by 1700 are still included, however, if used by authors such as Shakespeare or other influential literary sources. Headwords are traced back to their earliest usage. The dust jacket from the work claims it has more than one third of the coverage of the OED and more than half a million definitions, with 83,500 illustrative quotations from 7,000 authors. Although the preface does not cite the number of new entries, publicity from Oxford states that 3,500 new words have been added to this edition. An actual headword count is not given, though the publisher's Web site puts the number at 97,600.\n\nThe most welcome change to this edition is that the text is much easier on the eyes than in the fourth edition. Most notably, the illustrative quotations are placed within a tinted text box, making them very easy to spot. In the main entries, each definition sense is now started on a new line in clear, bold numbers (the older edition had all the senses grouped together in one paragraph), and etymologies are spelled out, with Old English or Middle Low German replacing the fourth edition's OE or MLG, respectively. Addressing a criticism RBB had of the fourth edition, abbreviations are now within regular alphabetical order rather than placed at the beginning of the alphabet.\n\nUnfortunately, one thing the Shorter OED has not changed is its tradition of abbreviating dates of first use--and, when needed, of last use--for a headword (L19 for late-nineteenth century, M20 for mid-twentieth century). Because even collegiate dictionaries now routinely spell out a date range for first use, it is time Oxford adopted a similar approach. It would also be useful to attach a date to the illustrative quotations used rather than just citing the author.\n\nWith both OED Online and the print Oxford English Dictionary too expensive for man , ISBN-13: 9780198605751
