Review from previous edition 'Review from previous edition An outstanding and useful text, de rigeur for young registrars.' * British Journal of General Practice *
'At less than one quarter of the price of a QOF point (GBP29.95), this book is excellent value for money and...it should be on the shelves of every Director of Public Health, or public health professional working within primary care organisations.' * Public Health *
'The best book by a country mile. I'd definitely recommend it!' * medicworld.co.uk *
'This is a book that demands to be used. It is well built for the job... The book is hugely and surprisingly comprehensive, covering vast tracts of areas of knowledge that GPs need to possess. Clinical and non clinical areas are amply covered in really good detail. The style is factual yet helpful and accessible and a simple scan of the relevant section is likely to help a GP manage a situation... For GP trainers like myself, this is an excellent source of tutorial material. The clinical sections are just as good... it is a frontline recipe book for all GPs-busy or not so busy. Without doubt, in my mind this is the best available book for British general practice and it ideal for GP registrars, newly starting GPs, mid career GPs and GPs wanting to freshen up their knowledge... there is little excuse not to buy it.' * Dr Harry Brown *
'What a treat - 1,100 pages of condensed knowledge and wisdom on everything from the new contract to what to do for obstetric shock... this is an essential - and I mean essential - piece of kit.' * The Sessional GP *
'A comprehensive guide to nearly everything. It is the yellow book equivalent for general practice. If you only buy one book, make sure it is this one.' * British Medical Journal *
'Small yet perfectly formed! This book is small enough to fit into any bag, or a capacious pocket, yet covers almost anything (clinical, practical, administrative) that any doctor or undergraduate working in general practice needs to know...I am extremely pleased to have been able to use and review this book. I have no hesitation in recommending it to its target audience.' * BMA Medical Book Award Panel 2006 *
'As a comfort blanket for the less experienced it remains unrivalled, but truly, it is a must-have book for all' * British Journal of General Practice *
'This is an absolute gem of a book. I would not be without it for my general practice training...It is portable, comprehensive and relevant and the logical format covers practice management as well as medical conditions.' * BMA Medical Book Competition 2010 *
'This is an excellent pocket reference for clinical immunology and allergy. The sections are arranged to allow for quick retrieval of key facts. It is small and convenient to carry...[it] will be particularly helpful to students or physicians who want a quick, convenient resource to retrieve key facts in a broad range of topics related to this field.' * Doody's Notes *
