Acknowledgements for the ninth edition
Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties (9 ed.)

Few authors are lucky enough to receive the vast number of insightful and useful comments that we are enjoying from readers all over the world. Our sincere thanks are owed to you all.

We would love to list each of you by name in print, but the sheer number means that we must find space to thank you here, on the world-wide web. This is, perhaps, an appropriate arena for such a tribute, for it is through the suggestions of our world-wide network of readers, and your unique experiences and traditions as practitioners of medicine interlocking like the roots of trees, that we have been able to ever-refine and improve our book, beyond what a small group of authors could achieve.

To all of you, our heartfelt thanks for letting us so freely tap into your expertise, your ideals, and your enthusiasm for getting to the bottom of knotty problems. The average reader leafing through our pages has no idea what goes on below their surface. But you have delved deep, you have nourished our roots, and you have inspired us to be better authors. We hope this tribute will inspire you to carry on reading ever more carefully, taking nothing for granted.

Murray Longmore, Judith Collier, Ian Wilkinson, and the other authors of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine and the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties.
