Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mohan Singh Dhariwal, DO, PhD (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This is the fifth edition of a book originally published in 1983. It now comes with expanded coverage of all the medical fields one may encounter in the office and hospital setting. It is divided into the major areas of internal medicine; each section has lists and tables of differential diagnoses.
Purpose: This is a quick reference to almost any key question that may arise on ward rounds and in conferences and morning report. It fill the need for a brief treatise that deals primarily with differential diagnoses. The authors' objectives of producing a book that is extensive but small enough to be carried in a pocket is well achieved.
Audience: This book would serve a wide range of audiences ranging from medical students to attending staff. It is not limited to internal medicine health care professionals alone but is also an excellent reference source for experts in other fields. Nurse practitioners and physician assistants will find it an invaluable resource.
Features: The work is well referenced with books and appropriate journal articles. The Dermatology section is limited and could easily be eliminated altogether or expanded to do justice to the subject. All other areas are well represented. The book is sized well to fit into the coat pocket and has an exquisite appearance. The cover, however, tends to curl with only minimum usage.
Assessment: Overall this is an excellent piece of work which should and will find its way into every medical student's pocket. The residents who examined this work were enthusiastic and expressed their desire to have access to it. Other healthcare workers from different areas of medicine will also find it helpful in their daily practice. It should be accessible in the office setting and made available in all medical libraries.
