New to this Edition:
"This title is organized in a traditional organ system format, with numerous systematic approaches to the information. Each section focuses on the relevant basic facts of clinical features, pertinent tests, and management -- essentially the items clinicians would want at their fingertips.
This is an extremely well-produced, title that provides all levels of clinicians a handy reference on rounds and in the office."
-- -- Vincent Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)Doody's Review
Explaining they were motivated by the longstanding tradition of sharing medical knowledge with colleagues, the editors relate this book was written for physicians in training: students in medical school and physicians in their residency. They end their preface most appropriately with the exhortation, "Relish the journey, it will last a lifetime."
As noted, this book is for young physicians and students. However, it is much more inclusive than that implies, as it provides a comprehensive, yet compact reference for clinicians at every level.
