4.0 out of 5 stars very usefull, and nice to read February 8, 2002
When I started work in an emergency department this book gave me many tips to solve some difficult cases. It is written in a way you can read it for few minutes in between patient visits in your night shift. The readability is high and you never get bored because it fixes every question in few lines (maximum 20 but mostly less than 10).
Obviously it is not really comprehensive, due to the small dimension and the question-response format; but it is sufficient also to study on it for examinations. It requires at least a basic understandig of medicine and it is not interesting for a lay person in many chapters.

5.0 out of 5 stars great intern guide May 11, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a great guide for medical students who want to go into emergency medicine, it is short enough to read in a month but long enough to cover a lot. I recommend reading it before or during your fourth year emergency rotation and again between the end of fourth year and the beginning of your intern year. Carry it with you as a reference.

(Purchased on 05/01/2008) Have wanted this book for some time and found it cheapest at Amazon.
This book is well layed out and organized by disease process and symptoms, good to have on hand for quick reference (but don't leave it lying around the ER, it will disapear fast).
Easy read. I would recomend for med students/residents or ER nurses.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy to read September 12, 2009
By qwy
Short, bulleted chapters make for easy reference, but it is also interesting enough to just plough straight through. Definitely appreciate it as a brand new practitioner.
