`Review from previous edition This is a wonderful book! It uses case histories to guide through all major medical and surgical scenarios, giving an initial presenting complaint and then working enough each case giving differentials, explaining why each is more likely, before going on to thoroughly describe what investigations are needed and why. It is a very fun and realistic book. I thoroughly, thoroughly recommend it to all medical students - and the sooner in you training the better." ' Caroline Rance, 5th Year Medical Student, Southampton Medical School `This book is welcome break to many of the other medical/surgical text books, a light, entertaining read but still packed with lots of useful tips and information. Unlike other books it gets you to start thinking, it has an excellent layout with a large number of cases accompanying each chapter to help put your knowledge into practice. The viva questions highlight extra important and interesting facts, helping to expand knowledge without merely repeating what can be found in other text books. A saving grace when revision starts to drag - I could pick up this book, work through a chapter or just dip into a couple of cases and would always learn something new or be lead to think about something in a different way. This book is actually fun to read - can't say that about many others!!' Amazon A refreshing approach not seen elsewhere in other texts. Comprehensive yet focused with the key learning points and questions the junior clinician needs to answer. Use to develop independent diagnostic skills and clinical reasoning. An unparalleled approach to diagnostics, for students and junior doctors alike! In my few years as a medical student, I have never come across any book that teaches a medical student to be an amazing diagnostician the way that this one does! It makes you think about differentials for presenting complaints right from the beginning - making your history thorough and intelligent.... It's exactly what examiners are looking for in long and short cases and I will definitely refer back to it next year in F1. A must buy!
