Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is a collection of internal medicine pearls residents would focus on during their training, organized in a question-and-answer format with key points. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose as stated in the preface is to help students understand the questions they are asked, and to provide some perspective for the questions clinicians are asking themselves. It is a daunting task to decide what questions to include, and the editor and contributors make these choices quite well.
Audience: The book is very useful for various levels of students, medical students, and residents. All the contributors are experienced clinicians.
Features: Supplementing the questions and answers are numerous tables and key points that summarize the material very well. By intent, the book does not go into background material and readers must either have some basic knowledge of the topic, or they must commit to researching what is unfamiliar to get an understanding of the physiology involved.
Assessment: As one of many book of this nature, this is a useful memory jogger for all levels of students in medicine. It covers the most frequently encountered areas very well.
