More About the Author
Dr. Makary is a practicing surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital and an associate professor of health policy at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. A medical commentator for a CNN and FOXNews, he speaks regularly on the sociology of medicine and the future of healthcare. Dr. Makary led the effort of the World Health Organization (WHO) to measure hospital complications and was the first to publish studies on the use of a checklist in surgery. He later worked closely with Dr. Atul Gawande to develop the official WHO checklist. Dr. Gawande credits the co-development of the surgical checklist to Dr. Makary in his best-selling book, "The Checklist Manifesto".
Dr. Makary's research has appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine and numerous other medical journals. He is the recipient of research grants from the Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and has written extensively on the subject of patient empowerment in healthcare. He serves in leadership roles at the American College of Surgeons and is the author of "General Surgery Review," a standard textbook used in many medical schools. In 2007, Dr. Makary was named the Mark Ravitch Chair of Gastrointestinal Surgery at Johns Hopkins. His current role is Director of Surgery Quality and Safety at Johns Hopkins. He specializes in cancer surgery and is the Director of the Johns Hopkins Pancreas Islet Transplant Center.

I have scored 99 percentile in all my absites during my residency for that reason I believe I can make some comments about this book to warn people.
This book is extremely incomplete, esophageal cancer, head and neck tumors, breast, trauma, melanoma, anorectal disease is totally unacceptable, no or inadequate staging information. No therapy options based on stage. Most disease processes which are heavily tested are basically glorified definitions. No guidelines reviewed. Lacking most of the details tested on the absite, I am not even mentioning that it is a joke for the score questions.
Even the black fiser book has way more detail and relevant information.
I am also attaching a picture on lip cancers from the book. This is all that's been written, trust me it is no different for larynx or other cancers including stomach, small bowel, gerd, lymphomas, the list goes on and on. Liver pancreas; only section in the book nearly adequate.
Why did I buy this book ? I summarized Cameron's on my black fiser during residency with post-its and unfortunately lost it during my move to a fellowship. I saw the Hopkins name and 600 plus pages and thought this would be a nice way to supplement my other review sources.
This book is awful, it is not even funny to see that it is full of just glorified definitions and word salad instead of clinical data.
Do not buy or rely on this book either as a supplement for abs or the absites. You will fail. This book is not even suited for 3rd year students.
