The first edition of the Textbook of Medical Physiology was written by Arthur C.Guyton almost 50 years ago. Unlike many major medical textbooks, which often have 20 or more authors, the first
eight editions of the Textbook of Medical Physiology were written entirely by Dr. Guyton with
each new edition arriving on schedule for nearly 40 years. Over the years, Dr. Guyton’s textbook
became widely used throughout the world and was translated into 13 languages.
A major reason for the book’s unprecedented success was his uncanny ability to explain complex physiologic principles in language easily understood by students. His main goal with each edition was to instruct students in physiology, not to impress his professional colleagues. His writing style always maintained
the tone of a teacher talking to his students.
