Review quote

This new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties may appear small in size but don't underestimate it. ... [This] is an essential component of any medical student's bookshelf and will be very useful in guiding you through the main clinical specialties. Lucy Faulkner, Northwing Applying humanism as the basis of delivering medical care, the reward for the physician and proven healing effect for the patient becomes evident. I found this focus delightful and worthy of every physician's consideration... They consistently encourage sympathy and compassion in the many types of patient interactions primary care providers will face and the reward this brings in a career that encompasses patient care from conception to end of life. The authors mine their experience for rich, authoritative insights into these many aspects of medicine. Doody's Notes, April 2013 Although there are several good pocket-sized medical references, I have not seen one that has the detail and easy format for quick reference as this one does. It includes thoughtful tools and an invitation for feedback from the authors. What I find most appealing is the unique emphasis on the human aspects of practicing medicine that is evident throughout, which is blended well with the more frequently taught technical, knowledge-based information. The authors succeed in their goal of emphasizing connection and compassion as a means to delivering more effective patient care as well as supporting and enhancing the physician's reason for choosing this career. If you are looking for a quick reference medical book, you will not be disappointed. The focus on the perspective of compassionate humans caring for people in need is a particularly useful bonus. Doody's Notes, April 2013
