“… a fantastic text for any doctor regardless of their grade. The book covers a huge array of pathology and knowledge in a succinct and accessible way with easy to use chapters with superb explanations throughout. This book is an essential text for all junior doctors.”
“I can with complete confidence recommend this book to any hospital physician or trainee. It is infused with useful tips dispensed throughout the text which uniquely (compared to other texts) places you in the mindset of a senior medical registrar or consultant on take.”
“This book provides a fantastic overview of a huge range of acute presentations; conveniently organised into a systems based approach. The information covered is comprehensive, yet still conveyed in a concise manner. The layout is also consistent across the different presentations, each giving: About, Aetiology, Clinical presentation, Investigations, and Management”.
