Do you want the task of keeping up-to-date to be enjoyable rather than a chore? Do you feel that you risk losing touch with advances occurring in medical specialties other than your own? If so, then keep reading.An Insider's Guide to the Medical Specialties is written to allow physicians of all grades to absorb knowledge with the minimum of effort, and a degree of pleasure. Generalists need to be skilled in the management of the early stages of a very diverse range of conditions. Never having heard of an investigation or hanging on to dated misconceptions about a patient's prognosis can be frustrating at best, and dangerous at worst. The aim of this book is to strike a balance between refreshing old knowledge and updating the reader on significant advances that have occurred in a particular specialty. Over forty consultants and trainees have contributed to An Insider's Guide to the Medical Specialties. The content will be of interest to consultants and trainees in the medical specialties, general practitioners, and others. At times entertaining, irreverent and controversial, this is not a book to be left nestling in the pocket of a white coat or gathering dust on a shelf.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The style is both informal and informative, and provides a refreshing change from both 'bullet point' pocket handbooks and heavier specialist tomes. If the editors' aim is to provide interesting glimpses through the different facades of medicine in a relaxed bedtime or armchair read, these authors have got the formula just right. * Andrew Brent, Specialist Registrar in Infectious Diseases, Oxford, UK *
