A lot of information layed out well. Has questions at the end of each section which reinforce the reading. Unfortunately, the text is full of errors. I found this throughout the book. I used the text for studying for the boards, and am afraid of the errors I didn't find. I would rate this an excellent text if these were to be fixed. Again the layout and material covered is excellent, just needs a little help.
