If you are in your first two years of medical school and this listed as required reading then this review applies to you. This book is a bit out of scope for medical students. As an alternative, you should buy Robbins and Cotran "Pathologic Basis of Disease" - there is a great genetics chapter in it, and it covers the basics of genetics as well as the key diseases you need to understand for medical school and USMLE Step 1. It additionally has a section on diagnostics and it is all explained in the classic Robbins ease of clarity. Furthermore, every single organ system is brilliantly covered in the other chapters of the textbook, which makes the "Pathologic Basis of Disease" a one-stop shop for all of your needs, including genetics.
This book has a different approach then most genetics books out there. I really feel it helps medical students understand basic principles of genetics as it integrates them with cases, making genetics relevant for clinical practice for all specialties!
The book was arrived to my apartment after one week and a half, it was packaged well.
I am very satisfied.
