Review

The chapters written by true world leaders, however, are richly crafted from years of experience, expertise, and an ability to interpret evidence at a level which fresh young authors lack. I’m a sucker for grey-haired wisdom, whereas most readers will open a textbook searching for a simple, factual answer to fill a self-identified gap in their knowledge. This book achieves the latter in exemplar.

I must concede, therefore, that I have no criticism of this masterpiece. It achieves its laudable aim of covering the entire specialty in three affordable volumes. It is inclusive of valuable wisdom from our sibling specialties. It is up-to-date, and each chapter offers suggestions for online searches for newer evidence. It is replete with the wisdom of established international experts, yet it also looks to the future of our fascinating specialty. It would suffice as a sole text for higher examination preparation and will be an essential addition to the shelves of every medical library.
