"This is a pocket-sized reference book of information that residents would need to have readily at their fingertips."-Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP(Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences) Doody Review: 89/100
"For UK medical students and doctors, this handbook is informative and detailed but does often not reflect national guidance and established practice. It is therefore mainly useful for those planning an elective or clinical work in the USA or countries with a similar approach to health care."
