Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is the third edition of a summary of basic topics for medical students. The previous edition was published in 2006.
Purpose: This well-illustrated U.K. book covers the basic aspects of medicine that would be encountered in the everyday primary care setting. As it is a summary rather than a comprehensive reference, it is focused on obtaining the history, performing a physical examination, and working through to a diagnosis.
Audience: Medical students are the intended audience. The intuitive illustrations are tremendously helpful for explaining a diagnosis to a patient.
Features: The book is divided into organ systems and then into symptoms. This format makes it easy to quickly find relevant information. The first chapter assumes little, starting with how to be a medical student, patient confidentiality, consent, and the relationship with a patient. A companion book, Medicine at a Glance: Core Cases, by the same author, is available in print and online.
Assessment: This is a well-formatted, easy-to-use presentation of basic topics in medicine.
From the Publisher
“This is a well-formatted, easy-to-use presentation of basic topics in medicine.”  (Doody’s, 17 August 2012)

"All in all these two titles [Medicine at a Glance and Medicine at a Glance: Core Cases] are excellent revision guides for under- and post-graduate students and can be highly recommended". (Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, 19 December 2010)

"Whilst the descriptive style of writing helps to engage the reader, it is the many diagrams which help to drive home key points." (Oxford Gazette, July 2010)
