The AAP’s Red Book is one of the most trusted infectious disease references ever available on the PDA. It is provided from the AAP directly in a mobipocket format and from Skyscape and also from Unbound Medicine.
They all deliver it in a similar price range $100-110. Read this post for a comparison of the three.
What was interesting is that Medical Wizards used to offer this title for less than half the price at $50! However, only for the Palm platform and even cannot be installed onto Windows Mobile via Style Tap because it’s .exe and not .prc file.
That Medical Wizards page looked really strange as the description was a mere copy and paste of that pdaMD offer where they delivered the Red Book and Epocrates Rx in one device bundle. So they did not even bother to write their own short description of the Red Book.
However, after I contacted both the AAP and Medical Wizards, that page was removed and the Red Book is no longer offered! It seems that was a big mistake from Medical Wizards.
I just wonder for those who purchased the Medical Wizards version of the Red Book, do they still have it? Is it legal!
UPDATE: We received a support reply from Medical Wizards saying that the file can still be downloaded from this link, however, that’s a free trial download we don’t know how to purchase the product. They also said that the product page is to be upgraded and to be published soon! Probably, they’ll revise the price!
