  • “This is an extraordinarily practical book. While there have been a number of these types of books published by various residency programs, they have tended, like medicine itself, to add information and grow proportionally. This first edition takes a fresh look and refines the bank of knowledge to the central core, keeping the book small enough to be easily carried. I highly recommend this to house staff…for a broader perspective of medicine.”
