What can I say? This is, in my humble opinion, the best book in the secret series. It can easily be used as the sole resource for this subject. While not as extensive as Sapira or DeGowin, it covers more material than Bates or similar. I also think the inclusion of some EBM with sensitivity, LR etc. is a very good idea. While not as extensive as McGee in this regard, it gives one a good start in this direction. The auscultation course (heart sounds and respiratory sounds) that is included in this volume is the best I have come across so far. The author gives you many tipps and hints and explains the different sounds very well.
I use this book all the time, and it is getting dog eared. For a thorough study I still prefer Sapira, but that book is written for masters, which I am certainly not, at least not yet :)

Thorough and clear explanations of the physical exam, the purpose behind techniques, the history of their development and the people behind the exam names. (E.g. "What is a hyperkinetic pulse?" followed by "What are the causes of a hyperkinetic pulse?" followed by "What is Corrigan's pulse?" followed by "Who was Corrigan?" followed by "What is a water hammer?" and finally "What is the best way to feel a Corrigan's pulse?")

The author risks providing too much information, but in the end, the devil is in the details, and it is the details - including entertaining back stories and mini-biographies - that make each technique so memorable. Illustrations and photos provide additional clarity.

A terrific, comprehensive study tool. Perfect for beginning med school students, residents, and beyond. The accompanying Heart & Lung Sounds Audio Workshop is another must-have. I'll use these for years to come.

This is a great book, everything you ever need to know about hands on physical diagnosis. This is what doctor new before the days of expensive test. Worth the money. I really like the historical perspective on the physical exams, who invented them..ect.

Excellent resource. I am in nursing school (pre-licensure...i.e. not an NP program), and even I have found this tremendously helpful. Obviously, some of the information is at a level too advanced for my needs, but I have found that Mangione gives even treatment to the basics as well as the higher-level concepts. The itemized format lets me pick and choose what I need. I liked it so much I ordered the Heart & Lung sounds workshop from Elsevier...I am hoping that program's quality is on par with the the text.

I have loved this concise, thorough book. I work in a subspeciality so I tend to forget much of a complete PE. So it is nice to review with this book. I have an excellent H&P book but it huge and tough to find exactly what I need. This book makes it so easy and concise to jump to what you want and need quickly. I recommend it 100%. I plan to buy additional books in this series. Shipping was perfect and book was brand new as described. Very happy overall.

I have a collection of physical exam textbooks, this is one of the best if not the best and can be uploaded into your smart device. It is also a pocketbook that you may take anywhere. The only thing is that I find the question and answer format annoying but the information in it is very hard to come by. It doesn't have enough pictures but overall it is excellent.
