In summary then, the book is an excellent introduction and overview of modern General Practice which helps the reader "talk the talk" before they actually "walk the walk"." Dr J M Sager (GP Leeds), Medix-UK website, October 2003
easy to read...a handy overview not only of the disease met in General Practice but of the broader picture of community medicine." 5th Year Medical Student, Liverpool University, December 2003
layout is neat, containing plenty of "key point tables" and diagrams, and is overall extremely easy to read.
Where the book shines is in the other sections where the diverse nature of GP practice is reflected in the topics covered ranging from GP consultation skills, how General Practice is organised and health promotion in the community." 5th Year Medic, Sphincter - Liverpool University Medical Magazine, December 2003
