Using clinical scenarios not only makes the reading fun and interesting, but it is far more engaging than sitting down with a bulleted text and reviewing detail after detail. This is a much better way to learn clinical information. I have not read a book like this before, and I certainly have enjoyed it.
- Eric Hossler, Medical Student, James H. Quillen College of Medicine
I LOVED this book! I would recommend this book to all third-year students The book uses a clinical approach and does not lose sight of the pathophysiology behind the disease -- GREAT preparation for being on the wards! The subject matter is also deceptively detailed, with much more information than one normally finds in a text of case files. The reader can use this book as either a rigorous self-test or a read-through introduction to the subject. Once again - a GREAT text!

Update: Having finished reading this book I can confidently recommend that you do not buy it. Please don't read it. There are countless serious errata and contradictions thoughout the entire book. This author clearly did not do his homework when he wrote this book, and it is very obvious. Much of the really important medical information flat out incorrect.
Here are some examples:
1) The pathophysiology of Sheehan syndrome (it's caused by post-partum hypotension leading to infarction then necrosis of the anterior pituitary gland, not by a hemorrhagic stroke in the anterior pituitary like he states)
2) On page 475, his first clinical pearl states that all breast masses must be biopsied regardless of what the imaging studies show. Later on this same page, he states that some masses can simply be observed without biopsying them.
3) Indications for BCRA 1/2 testing: contradicts himself on pages 454 & 448
4) Pg. 416: He states that laparoscopy is always required to treat ectopic pregnancies, and that methotrexate should not be used. He then states on pg. 419 that methotrexate is the standard treatment for ectopic pregnancies.
5) Pg. 23 table 1-1 states different information for the normal labor parameters than is stated on page 60. Turns out, page 23 is incorrect
Recommend this book. There are some pretty drastic changes from the prior edition. For instance, active phase of labor is now considered 6 cm and up, not 4 cm. When evaluating for ectopic pregnancy, B-hcg is expected to increase by >50% within 48h (previously was more strict cut-off at 66%).
Don't be a dum-dum like me and walk around wards blissfully spewing out outdated facts. Cry cry :(
