Feedback from Amazon reviewers:
"Very useful when on call. Compact and does actually fit on my pocket. Looking forwards to further versions. Contains basic facts and more useful than the oxford handbook of clinical medicine. Well priced compared to other books."
"I really find this book very useful and always carry it to work. The think I like is that it hasn't been hit by bloated writing and has all the key facts and tips for the job without overcomplicating matters. It is simple but comprehensive."
"I can with complete confidence recommend this book to any hospital physician or trainee. Not only does it provide up to date evidence based guidelines on virtually any hospital emergency you will come across. It is infused with useful tips dispensed throughout the text which uniquely (compared to other texts) places you in the mindset of a senior medical registrar or consultant on take."
