it’s comprehensive, readily accessible, and tells me just enough, not too much, so I can refer to it with my patients there and go on to the next thing. This is the third edition I’ve purchased. It’s compact and up-to-date.
The book is in good shape. It is the right edition which I ordered. I’m very happy about this purchase.
Excellent and up to date as always. There is no other resource I trust. A must have for a hospitalist.

For over fifteen years this text has continued to evolve and remain a reliable source. It’s a useful prescribing reference.
