About the Author
It is well established that the original Prometheus was a champion of mankind, first creating them from clay. Prometheus soon learned that humans have needs and is most famous for his gift of fire. As humans prospered, they began to associate with one another and form societies. As their societies grew, they became increasingly complex and their laborers subdivided. One such subdivision included the professions; access to which required a multiple choice exam. Enter, Prometheus Lionhart, and his gift of knowledge. This manual on test preparation in radiology is the first of its kind, and one frantically needed as medical examination joins the digital age with the abolition of the oral boards and the corresponding well-established preparatory methods. As Aristotle was a student of Plato, who ultimately surpassed his teacher in philosophic largesse, so too shall Prometheus Lionhart, as his gift of knowledge turns to wisdom, and that wisdom to the ability to repay student loans… maybe. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I found out I had passed the core exam today, so I can leave a "tried-and-true" review.
I highly recommend using this book as a study guide for your core studies. This book is concise and to the point. It assumes that you have been exposed to all the topics they are covering. If there is a topic you don't understand or have not seen before, look it up! Almost all the topics they cover are high yield. There are very few topics that are missing and very few topics where they give you too much information. It is definitely worth the money and your time.
The bad -- (1) it strongly relies on "buzz words", especially the "gamesmanship" chapter; I don't know if the author appreciates that the test is very different from the USMLE or "writtens" and is "image rich" and not going to ever give you a descriptive sentence full of buzz words to run with. instead they will show you the picture. So it doesn't help if you associate "punched out lytic lesion" with gout -- you need to get there from looking at a radiograph of gout. As such this book would benefit from significnt addition of images. Or you need to use it in conjunction with the Internet and look up images as you read along (which makes it a much less quick read). (2) this book needs an editor, badly. Clearly the author was in a rush to get it out in time for the next offering of the core, but there's a typo or grammatical error on virtually every page. And the author apparently doesn't know the differences between the word "effect" and "affect" -- he pretty consistently uses the wrong one, which is a bit distracting.
So basically this is a very nice first draft, but hopefully there will be a cleaned up, more "image rich" second edition on the horizon.
Many typographical errors should be fixed imo - but still the best source out there.
Radiology right to the goddam point!
