    Guyton is useful to build up foundation, like someone begin to learn swimming, but Ganong will be useful once u had read enuf from Guyton, good for final review,
    thats how i appreciate both

    Thank you for all of the hard work on this blog. My niece really likes going through investigation and it's really easy to see why. Almost all learn all concerning the compelling mode you present sensible steps via your blog and therefore strongly encourage participation from other individuals on that topic so our own girl is undoubtedly discovering a lot. Have fun with the remaining portion of the new year. You're doing a really great job. gbg mlm

    I'm sorry to disagree, but Guyton's is probably the worst physiology book I have ever read. As to Ganong's, this is a good book, but all too simplistic.

    If you don't have enough time to go through a big book, I'd suggest High-Yield physiology, Linda Constanzo's... Charles Tadlocks' review is also very good. But again, they are short books.

    If you do have the time, and the will, I'd suggest THE BEST physiology book around today: Boron's Physiology.

    Of course, there ARE other acceptable options. Fox, Rhoades-Tanner, very good options...

    And for you, spanish speakers or people traveling to Spain for some medical practice experience, I'd suggest THE BEST physiology book in spanish: Tresguerres's physiology.

    Of course, if you are visiting South America and happen to drop by Argentina, you cannot miss the chance to buy Cingolani-Houssay's Physiology... just a tad old, but an amazing book full of history.


    I do realice, my friends, I've gone a little bit far in my answering, acording to the question. But as you may already know, I'm answering to all who may ask them-selves about physiology-literature options.

    Hope I've been of some help.

    Hi

    i don't use Guyton, seems a little short... I prefer Boron (suburb images and schemes) and when i'm short of time i use ganong's...
