Complex material is distilled and organized in a logical, succinct and accessible way, with integration of clinical, laboratory/imaging and therapeutic information. Extensively re--written with the assistance of two new authors, each chapter has been carefully reviewed. Up--to--date and portable, this little book caters to day--to--day clinical decision making, while also targeting postgraduate examination preparation.

    Review quote
    "Money extremely well spent, I would recommend it to anyone trying to pass finals at the moment." (Sphincter, Liverpool Medical Studentsa Society Magazine) "This is an excellent pocket--sized edition, which will prove to be invaluable in revision for the membership examinations... A useful reference book, both for learning and revision. It achieves what many MCQ books fail to deliver -- the complete answer, not just the reason why a stem is correct..." (Barts and the London Chronicle, Autumn 2000) "...It is tight--lipped. It neatly summarises each field/subject. It uses tables and bulleted sentences. It fits neatly into a pocket. It tells you nothing that isna t essential. Ita s about internal medicine. It does exactly what is says on the cover." (Black Bag -- Bristol Medical School Gazette, 2000)
    Back cover copy
    The second edition of this popular pocket book gives an overview of internal medicine, and is a highly relevant study aid for senior medical students and post-graduates preparing for examinations. Clinicians as well as students will find it a very useful aide memoire, as it packs between its covers the essentials of this large subject and gives a rapid update in current diagnosis and therapeutics. Complex material is distilled and organised in a logical and accessible way, with integration of clinical, laboratory, imaging and therapeutic information. Extensively re-written with the assistance of two new authors, the subject matter has been carefully reviewed to ensure it is accurate, up-to-date and comprehensive. An overall standard format is used, covering clinical clues, pathophysiology, diagnosis and therapeutics. Key facts are presented as skeleton lists and tables, carefully derived from medical literature and other authoritative sources. Additional material on pharmacology and best evidence is included. This little book emphasises essential areas that may well be overlooked when one is reading the major textbooks which it complements.Readable, compact and portable, it is a straight-forward study aid for medical students, and a dependable reference for junior doctors or for established practitioners, either in the office or on the wards.
