Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This book explores commonly encountered general practice cases using a Socratic approach of presenting the situation and asking questions about how to arrive at the diagnosis and treatment.
Purpose: The purpose is to supplement practitioners' clinical experience and refresh their memory.
Audience: Although the book focuses on British general practitioners, the discussions are relevant for all who practice medicine. The authors have given us a very personal, back to basics book with lessons for all.
Features: The book provides a summary of the basic science, history, and physical followed by the case discussions. The authors present a nice exposition of 36 very common outpatient scenarios and challenge readers to answer questions on how to approach the patient, the social context in which the patient presents, and the long-term follow-up of the patient. These are followed by options and references for further reading. Not much physiology is explained nor is much rationale given for the answers, but the book does stimulate readers to think.
Assessment: This thoughtful book for general practitioners has many reminders of how to approach patients on an everyday basis.
