You are much better off buying a book written by an actual MD which will most likely be to the point and not full of contradictions.

The issue for me are the subtexts in the middle of the pages. While I read on a particular subject, I turn the page to finish it off and then have to go back to read the offside subtexts. Really annoying esp because I have mild OCD. Why not just add that subtext on after finishing up on a topic? Anyways, it’s not a deal breaker but this is a DENSE book with a lot of material and it only gets worse as you keep reading. 500+ pages of this and it becomes a pain.
