An outstanding book- essential for any clinician of any specialty. The author takes common issues and procedures in medicine and clearly, logically and concisely explains them. He successfully and uniquely ties in basic science to clinical medicine and makes us think about what we do and why. The new edition is even better with excellent illustrations and 'bottom line' sections at the end of each chapter. The fact that it is a single author makes it fluid and very easy to read. The new edition's associated web site allows for continuous updating. This book is a fundamental for anyone who wants to understand medicine at the physiologic level.
