"This is an excellent book for those who are about to enter the wards. It has just enough useful medical knowledge and just enough procedural knowledge, but what is really great is how it concisely presents why and how we take day-to-day care of patients. This wraps all the hard-knock lessons of M3 year into 150 pages. It is more concise and its tone is more fraternal than other works." - Lisa M Niedergeses, MD(University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine), Doody's Review
