Reviews

"As a physician who teaches a lot of residents and medical students, I find this type of book very useful and easy to recommend. It serves well as an adjunct to other books and lectures and really tells readers just the important stuff. It has been five years since the prior edition and the authors have updated the book nicely, and include a reference to an online blog/website that is published privately by one of the authors." - Michael D. Zwank, MD, RDMS, FACEP(University of Minnesota Medical School), Doody Enterprises
