"As the title implies, this is a useful reference as a memory jogger. It lays out the basics that every person in medical training must keep in mind. I highly recommend this as a desk reference for primary care clinicians." (Doody's, 26 August 2011)

"This book is just fantastic. While doing specialist rotations in my fourth year, I've found it more useful, in some ways, than the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, a book that we use on a daily basis in the hospital." (Times Higher Education, 24 February 2011)
