An innovative, visual textbook to help medical students learn and understand core medical conditions.
The book features over 100 easy to follow, full colour mind maps of clinically relevant medical conditions using a systems-based structure:

All mind maps are presented consistently and cover:
- Causes and Risk factors
- Clinical features: signs and symptoms
- Investigations: blood tests and imaging
- Management: lifestyle, pharmacological and surgical
Other key features:
- Images are provided throughout the book to help illustrate key signs.

The Visual Learners' Dream
'Concise yet comprehensive, I cannot recommend this enough to my fellow efficiency and mind map loving medics.
This book covers most conditions we are likely to encounter though medical school, with Definition, Pathophysiology, Causes, Clinical features, Investigations, Management, and Complications; all portrayed in - as the name suggests - Mind Maps! Organised into systems and full with great mnemonics.
Mind Maps always feature in my revision and this book creates the perfect mark scheme to my revision maps. As mind maps are such personal things this book also encourages personalisation with lots of 'Notes' spaces as well as being printed on paper I can actually write on! ' Amazon reviewer
Great book for med students in their clinical years!
'A very useful book to cover the main topics in each specialty! Surprisingly, for a mind map book, it has a lot of detail on the conditions, management and clinical features.' Amazon reviewer
Ideal for revision
'Helpful book for all levels. Helpful for medical school exams and as a quick reference guide. Would recommend!' Amazon reviewer
Fantastic book for medical finals
'Amazing colourful mind maps in just the right amount of detail. I could use this to revise from directly or simply as a reference. Also generous amount of mnemonics which I’m a huge fan of. I wish there were other texts just like this which cover other medical specialties!' Amazon reviewer
'Fantastic and innovative book for those doing medical finals. This book covers most of the general medical topics in very well presented mind maps (in very good detail). Highly recommend to those who are visual learners like myself!' Amazon reviewer
Great mind maps
'This book is excellent. The mind maps have a really good level of detail for each condition, so that you get a very comprehensive overview without being an overwhelming amount of information. They cover everything from pathophysiology throughout to management, and sometimes contain extra detail on the different pharmacological approaches when relevant. I can tell this will be extremely useful when it comes to revising these conditions, as it gives you all the key information you need, and allows you to quickly recall the essentials about a condition. It looks great too, and is very clearly laid out and colour coded to make it easy to understand. Overall, this is an extremely good revision tool for medical students, I'd recommend to anyone!' Amazon reviewer
Very easy to grasp and easy on the eyes
'I have found this guide extremely useful and informative. It has helped me to understand basic concepts but also help me link key concepts and trends. I have always drawn my own mind maps but this has saved me a lot of time and effort which I can dedicate back to pure studying. Would very highly recommend this.' Amazon reviewer
Unique, innovative and an essential for every student and medic
‘Absolutely fantastic book! Perfect for the visual learners but also learners like myself who did not think they were visual learners but were taken aback by the clarity of presentations. Some visual mind maps can lack detail but this book covers the perfect amount of detail for medical students and also junior doctors alike.
I am a GP trainee and found this a very useful summary but also the medical students I teach loved it and found it perfect for clinical medicine. Genuinely a steal at this price and could not recommend more!' Amazon reviewer
