Published Reviews

    ***2010 BMA Book Awards - Highly Commended - Internal medicine***
    “This is an excellent resource for experts, teachers and senior trainees - truly expert opinion at your fingertips although perhaps less helpful for generalists. It will be very good for trainees looking at exit exams and interviews as it’s easy to navigate. The searchable online version will be great for preparing talks: it may be worth buying just for that!”  Judges comments
