It still remains the primary ‘must-have’ text book of any budding doctor, or qualified one at that. This book is stunning in its breadth and in its ease of use. It still remains as the ‘gold-standard’ thorough guide to clinical medicine its forefathers were.’ BMA Judges 2010 ‘This is one of a select few books that deserves to be in most doctors’ personal possession and it’s as simple as that…’ Dr Harry Brown.
