    Most Comprehensive Medical Atlas for Medical and Nursing Students

    This clinical reference atlas: Physical Signs in Medicine and Surgery by Dr. F. A. White is unrivaled as the most extensive scholarship on the subject. At 800 plus pages it essentially covers every rare expression of physical signs known. If you do not have a clinical atlas, you must have this for your book shelf. It even contains the most obscure zoonotic type diseases, making it your most invaluable infectious diseases reference. This is definitely the only book on the required reading list that was fun to read and when finished you still carry around. To put it in simple terms: Required Reading - Period. That says it all.

    Best Clinical Atlas for Surgery and Medicine

    Physical Signs in Medicine and Surgery is the most comprehensive resource available for practitioners and students in the clinical fields. Whether you are studying medicine, dentistry, nursing, or veterinary science the answers to even the most difficult diagnosis are in this Atlas. When it arrived I was blown away by how thick and heavy it was, but then after beginning to use it, it has now replaced a half dozen books that were in my satchel. This awesome clinical text and a scut monkey house manual are all you will need for even the toughest residency.

    It is the - Must Have Book - for learning differentials. Use it, Love it, and Save a Life

    Remarkable: Physical Signs in Medicine and Surgery Highly Recommended

    Dr. White takes us on a journey into medicine's earliest diagnostic findings. This path brings to light descriptions of physical signs long lost to history. This is not the information you'll find in other textbooks. This is a unique and vibrant narrative that you would recommend highly to anyone considering the field of medicine or to the practitioner that has been at this for years and needs that spark back in their eyes. Very Engaging.

    New England Quarterly - Best Choice Reviews

    Dr. White's Atlas covers the ancient and latest medical scholarship. This book has been a long time in the coming. There are approximately 4000 entries on strange and obscure diseases. This is the one essential study tool that will allow a medical student to out diagnose HOUSE.

    Phenomenally Interesting.

    Health Sciences Library Editor's Recommendation

    This book is excellent. Its detail, readability, and 300 references make it a necessary addition to the library of every student in the health sciences. If you want a clinical atlas you will actually use again and again, this is the one, and believe me you will be thumbing through it twenty years from now trying to find the answers to your most difficult cases.
