I would be delighted if every medical student I taught had realized the level of the clarity and detail in this book. Dr Thomas Jacques, Clinician/Scientist, Institute of Child Health, in the Bulletin of the Royal College of Physicians ...ideal for all medical students...for PBL section and as a companion to lecture notes...also useful as a refresher later on...cross referencing with the Oxford Handbook Clinical Medicine makes it ideal when looking for specific pathologies and their management... QMM The book enables you to see basic science through the viewpoint of clinical medicine. You feel acutely aware of the relevance of the information you are well as the familiar and efficient bullet point method to convey essential information, it contains clear and wonderfully concise diagrams - the kind youcrave when you want to quickly check something; you don't want detail - just to jog your memory. GKT Gazette Fantastic! Truly a great resources for students. I feel that this book could have a great market here in the US. The US market has many similar books but they all fall short on content. I find this text far superior in content & organization. My thoughts are that 3rd & 4th year medical students could carry & use this small handbook when rotating on the various hospital wards & clinical rotations. This book would also be very helpful for 1st year interns/residents as they often need to refer back to basic science principles...I was amazed at how complete this small handbook is with basic medical science topics and the ease with which one can read and refer back to these topics. Art work was particularly impressive despite being small. I found no weaknesses in this book whatsoever! Dr. Edward Kernick, USA's got pretty much everything you're supposed to know in years one and two...compact, comprehensive, brilliant value and another winner in the handbook series. Dr Jeremy Sager, GP, Leeds, UK. ... a first rate attempt at covering the medical sciences MedicWorld
