Uesful, Possibly Esential, Books for Cruisers
I was looking through my bookshelf today, a bit bored whilst waiting for a new prop shaft ( another story). I seldom notice these books
except when I really need them.
If you are cruising these two books
can stand you great stead, The Merck Manual and Mansons Tropical Disease
The Merck Manual is available on line at THE MERCK MANUAL MEDICAL LIBRARY: The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy
but a hard copy is well worth having. Manson's Tropical Diseases is only available in hard copy Amazon.com: Manson's Tropical Diseases (9780702026409): Gordon C. Cook MD DSc FRCP(Lond) FRCP(Edin) FRACP FLS, Alimuddin I. Zumla BSc MBChB MSc PhD(Lond) FRCP(Lond) FRCP(Edin): Books
Even if you have little or no medical
training you will find them very useful. The tropical diseases book has great sections on prevention as well as cure.
The message is the journey, we are sure the answer lies in the destination. But in reality, there is no station, no place to arrive at once and for all. The joy of life is the trip, and the station is a dream that constantly out distances us”. Robert Hastings, The Station
