Our practical guide for all healthcare professionals dealing with the growing obesity crisis, Managing Obesity by Saffron Whitehead and Gul Bano. Written specifically for non-specialists (GPs, junior doctors and medical students) who increasingly need to treat obese patients.
Our new concise guide to undergraduate medicine, Medicine in a Minute by Amar Vaswani and Hwan Juet Khaw. We published this book following student feedback saying they no longer have the time or inclination to read through the huge clinical medicine texts. Medicine in a Minute provides the core information medical students need to know without overwhelming the reader.

Anatomy and Physiology in Healthcare just reviewed in the Nursing Standard:
'This textbook presents anatomy and physiology in a fun and interactive way....It is divided into 14 chapters and the way the authors have introduced the information gives it a modern twist. For example, instead of titling a chapter 'The reproductive system', it is called 'From one generation to the next'. .....What works particularly well is the way the authors have used case studies that reflect the reality of the changing patterns of health and disease....This book provides a good foundation in clinical application and it seeks to link theory to practice.'
The Art of General Practice has just been reviewed in the British Journal of General Practice
'This little book is well written and has a pleasant, informal style… The first part of the book covers what [the author] calls the soft skills, but what could be called the social skills required to make the consultation work most successfully… This section might be ideal for a trainer with a trainee facing clinical skills assessment. … The second part of the book tries to encourage and enable the career GP to look after themselves. Again, well written, it is full of useful advice…. To sum up, a short book from which every GP might learn something.'
