Created initially from a medical students final revision notes.
Concise, balanced, practical and plastic-covered to repel
unmentionable liquids and yet containing enough humility and
humanity for its voice to be that of a supportive experienced
friend rather than a critical professor. * Professor Max Watson,
Review from previous edition The bees' knees of medicine. . . A brilliant all-round book. * The Student Room *
Incredibly helpful in almost all situations, information well laid out and easy to find, engaging to read ... useful asides to aid memorisation, essential algorithms/reference intervals helpfully situated on front and back inside covers; a generally excellent and clearly very well-thought-out book. * Tom Dalton, University of Birmingham, UK *
I very much appreciated the very human and caring aspect it brings to clinical medicine, it's lovely to have the dry, biomedical material broken up with humorous, motivational and touching stories. * Sam Siljee, University of Otago, New Zealand *
THE best book that a medical student could ever use. Everything is so easy to find, and is just enough depth for me! * Alexander Wibberley, 3rd year medical student, University of Leeds *
Like many other students I use the book as a quick reference/recall and revision tool, and for that it is (for lack of a better word) perfect. Every medical student in their clinical years should own one of these, and I think most of them already do! If you dont you are missing out. * Paddy Green, almostadoctor.co.uk *
