'This is one of a select few books that deserves to be in most doctors’ personal possession and it’s as simple as that. ...The book alone is worth the money but you get more than this when you purchase it. You get free on line access to the full text through http://www.studentconsult.com/ and this is marvellous. ... The beauty of this book lies in its wide appeal which includes students and post graduates, GPs and Consultants and those in the training grades. Having an online twin to accompany the book as standard is truly fantastic.' Dr Harry Brown
