The Book of the Year is selected from the winners in 20 award categories.

“It is incredibly exciting to receive the Medical Book of the Year award from the British Medical Association for the second consecutive year, and receive recognition of seven other Lippincott books,” said Jayne Marks, Vice President, Global Publishing, Wolters Kluwer, Health Learning, Research and Practice. “Our authors, as well as our publishing and editorial teams work hard to develop high quality, evidence-based texts to support decisions on effective patient care.
