“This concise, no-nonsense reference is presented in an A-Z format for easy access to information, and includes a thematic index with conditions sorted by speciality making it an ideal companion in any clinical situation.” (Kingbook73's Medical Ebook and Video Collection, 15 September 2014)""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)
