***2010 BMA Book Awards - Highly Commended - Medicine category*** “The illustrations are excellent and easy to learn from. The inclusion of real pictures of clinical signs is a useful learning tool. This is an ideal book formedical students and junior doctors to revise clinical medicine and refer to on the wards. It summarises key information in a logical manner, with excellent illustrations and images. The dense layout of the text is the weakest feature.”Judges comments
