An overall great resource and in a manageable size (as opposed to the giant version). It has just enough information for the ER physician/physician assistant, but isn't necessarily the comprehensive story. Highly recommend as a first go-to book - it's really exceptionally useful. One of the favorite "carry around" medical reference books I own. Completely not useful if you are not in an urgent care setting as you would want more in depth information in other primary care arenas.
Pocket sized guide you should always keep in your back pocket for residency. Contains clinical features and differential diagnoses that can help in situations and to review information that is a little hazy. Recommend it for anyone and everyone who is planning to go under residency or is already in.
If you're interested in EM or doing a rotation this is a must have book that will fit in you pocket. I read all of the last edition and bought the new edition without hesitation when I started my EM rotation.
