Pre-publication quotes

"I do not think it is an understatement to say that it is a revolutionary book. It is obviously written with integrated courses very much in mind and manages to integrate the basic sciences with clinical information very well.... Maybe above all things, this is a very practically orientated book and really attempts to mould the medical student in to a very good house officer."

JeevesHater124 More than 1 year ago
After receving news that I was in need of a major coronary heart surgery from my quack doctor I knew that I didn't want him or any of his so called collegues (I call them crooks) going into my body. They charge far too much and I'd be afrid they perform surgery on my wrong heart or take all the precious jewels I've lodged in my digestive system. Nor did I want to have a thrid world surgery because my Uncle Murray once had a surgery in Guetemala and he woke up with no kidneys and three goul bladders. This came as even more of a shock because they were supposed to be performing brain surgery. I saw my only options as ignoring the aliment or doing the surgery myself. I opted for the latter. Now I'm not an idiot, I wouldn't just perform surgery on myself without knowing what I'm doing. I had found a copy of this clinical surgery book at the bus stop and thought that had given me all the needed information, but I was wrong. After a few throuogh skim throughs I beleived I was ready but when I opened up I didn't recognize anything. There were two baloon type things an each side and a lot of micelanous objects pumping and what not. Not to mention the book failed to mention the thick layer of bone over my chest cavity and how hard it was to sew that back up. I might of been in pain if I hadn't been under such heavy anestia. When the fire department came in there was some unpleasentness and let's just say I won't be perfoming many more surgies on myself. But most importantly I found that this book provided no real world applications and only provided it from a surgeons point of view and not the patient/surgent. Besides the whole life threating thing the book was well written with some enticing pictures. I give it three stars.
