Perfect "Go-To" Pocketbook
Since obtaining this book shortly after starting my intern year, I have yet to find a more concise pocket reference for everyday (and some not-so-everyday) problems seen in the primary care and other settings. The book includes chronic and acute issues covering every bodily system, while also devoting time to women's, pediatric, and preventive health. The text is impeccably written and thoroughly referenced throughout, making further reading on each topic an easy task. As one would expect with a pocketbook, the print is quite small but ultimately legible and well worth the sacrifice as the book won't crowd the pockets of your white coat (or your shirt's breast pocket, for that matter). The table of contents is well organized by bodily system and makes finding relevant information painless. I would recommend this pocketbook highly for medical students, interns and residents on primary care rotations, and practicing professionals dealing with primary care issues.

Great Resource for RNs as well!
I am an RN in the ICU. I have had this book for a few weeks and have found myself using it frequently. It is concise, which is a necessity, but also relevent and thorough. Great resource for critical care RNs. Definitely improves my ability to provide high quality care and has taken my nursing to the next level in many ways. Should be a requirement for all acute care nurses! Would love to see it available as a mobile app (for iphone and droid). Would definitely be willing to pay for that!Was this review helpful?
