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 EmeryThe Oxford Dictionary of Medical Quotations presents a wonderfully entertaining and eclectic range of quotations covering all aspects of medicine through the ages.
