Review quote

GPs I am sure will be impressed with the excellence of this book, as put simply; it is superb. The book coverages a huge chunk of general practice and does it covering the facts and the important elements with no added extras. It is full of wisdom, great advice and without doubt offer high standards of practice[.] * Dr Harry Brown, Glycosmedia * The book has been successful in condensing the entire breadth and depth of general practice in less than 30 chapters. A real success. [...] As someone who has completed both their phase 3a and phase 3b GP rotations, I would highly recommend this book. It not only saves you time scanning through websites it also provides up to date NICE guidelines all in one small book. * North Wing Magazine * Review from previous edition The book is thorough and comprehensive, yet easy to read and well written, illustrated by useful... figures and tables. It contains most of the medical information and knowledge you need for use in a general medical practice, both in day-to-day and emergency contexts. * Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association *
