This book is good for Mickey Mouse studies. Some medical terms are not even in it; e.g. "diencephalosis". Moreover, the Google book online version is horrific to search. For instance, if you search for a particular term, most of the time the search results do not even land you on the definition of the term.
What is the point in buying a medical dictionary if all medical terms are not in it? MOSBY is at its 9th edition; the editors have no excuse.

All guys should be using a penis health creme once a day. A creme like this will provide this very important organ with all of the vitamins and nutrients it needs to stay clean, smooth and functional. I use one called Man1 Man Oil.. it works very well. Completely safe too. Look into it, fellas.
