Winner of the Young Authors Award at the BMA book awards 2019! Highly Commended in the Medicine category!
Here's what the BMA reviewers said:
"I would unreservedly recommend this book to any medical student and indeed anyone else who wanted to learn more about internal medicine including junior doctors, nurses, physicians' assistants. I would have loved a book like this when I was a medical student."
Medicine in a Minute is a brand new full-colour text covering the
fundamentals of undergraduate medicine in one book. Medical students no longer have the time or inclination to read the huge texts that used to dominate this market - they need a concise book that covers the core information they have to know, and in a user-friendly format: Medicine in a Minute is this book!
The book is edited and
written by two of the authors behind the bestselling Cardiology in a Heartbeat and features several common design
elements and features.
The book is divided into body systems and then each section within the
particular body system follows a consistent pattern:
Epidemiology Risk factors Differential diagnosis Aetiology
Pathophysiology Clinical features
Medicine in a Minute is a
student-friendly, concise text that you will want close to hand throughout your
I love the final chapter with all
emergency scenarios with ABCDE approach! Highly recommend this book to students especially
clinical years and finals!
I really like the layout and simple
nature of this textbook. It covers all of the major topics in medicine and
doesn't give you any waffle.
Ive bought many medical textbooks
during my time in medical school but I can simply say this is the best of its
type. Pitched at exactly the right level for clinical medicine.

Great for finals! "I love this book. Covers lots of common, important conditions that are easy to read when you have a spare minute. The book is very well laid out using colour, tables and images. I've got finals coming up in a few months and feel with this book I will be well prepared! It's well worth the money." Amazon reviewer

Very good book. A delight to read "Concise, well written. easy to read and a good revision book. The layout is good with superb use of colours." Amazon reviewer
Comprehensive textbook "This is an excellent textbook perfect for senior medical students and junior doctors alike. It covers each body system comprehensively; outlining normal physiology and common pathologies and integrates this with clinical features and management stratgeies. It is complemented by useful medical images and examination tips and its layout makes it very easy to read. I particularly liked the emergencies section which covers common situations encountered by junior doctors in the hospital situation.
It would be perfect for students preparing for medical finals or even the MRCP.
I would thoroughly recommend this textbook and would put it on par with the well known oxford handbook.." Amazon reviewer
A great revision book for clinical year students and finals "I have used various revision books and found this book to be very good overall.
The layout is clear and easy to follow rather than packed with text. They have small boxes of key clinical pearls and I really like these!
The information provided is accurate and up to date.
Only essential to know information is provided so it is perfect for lunch time revision while being on placement.
I also love the final chapter with all emergency scenarios with ABCDE approach!
Highly recommend this book to students especially clinical years and finals!" Amazon reviewer
