Book Reviews

"This is an image-based book designed to provide a visual library of common findings in the primary care (inpatient and outpatient) setting. It is organized by body part, and teaching points are made through clinical vignettes and board-style questions. This book offers a stunning collection of photographs of distinct physical exam findings that may be seen in a primary care setting. The photographs could be larger, but they effectively convey pathology. Teaching points are short, concise, and well conveyed. The board style questions provide an additional interactive feature through which the reader can solidify the information." -- Heather Huang, MD(Rush University Medical Center), Doody's Review
