Online Reviews of the First Edition:

***** [five stars] "All my attendings and residents during my medicine clerkship commented that my fund of knowledge was excellent. Everyone gave me honors, and it was literally all because of this book ... GET THIS BOOK!"

**** [four stars] "... Highly distilled, has quick easy-to-read facts/pearls, and leaves out the crud. I lost mine but I am constantly wanting to go back and review it. I may just buy it again, even though I am done with my Medicine rotation and I am pursuing Surgery."

***** [five stars] "Gives you the key facts about many diseases ... information that will help you answer questions during rounds and on exams ... It's easy to get through, which is important since there's so much to learn during the Internal Medicine rotation (and not enough time!)"

***** [five stars] "Perfect for MSIIIs starting their IM Clerkship; it is also great for Step 2 review and the Medicine Shelf."

I got this book for as a christmas gift but since it came unwrapped, I checked it out right away- it is awesome! This second edition has a smooother look to it, with more radiographs and tables. I have always been a fan of the margin tips and this edition does a great job with them. I have my medicine clerkship coming up next and already feel I am ahead of the game.
