Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"First of all it is British and so ideal for those of us in the UK...It is also bang up to date..It's laid out in typical textbook style and is organised into general principles and body systems... The text is broken up into digestible chunks and good use is made of colour whilst there is plenty of self assessment to pit your wit against. It is a great book, ideal for undergraduates, but it is also a super reference source for clinicans wanting to brush up their knowledge. It is an ideal adjunct to the BNF."
