Product description

Review

Reviews of the second edition "Compared to other reference handbooks, this volume provides great awareness of social and communicative aspects of medicine and impacts of disease on patients … .One can see that a great deal of throught and collaboration has gone into this offering. I can recommend this veritable pocket bounty to all medical students." ( Cambridge Medicine , December 2009) " Medicine marks a truly new and original concept in the world of Medical publishing. ... The result is a marvelous and in depth study of medicine. ... A text that is remarkably easy to use, promoting the ability of the student to retain what he is learning. Axford and O′Callaghan have done a magnificent job in covering a broad range of material, writing in clear and vibrant prose—outlining data so as to facilitate deep understanding. ... As a textbook, Medicine is written for the way that the typical student approaches the classroom." ( The Electric Review , October 2004) "The use of these various colour–coded boxes throughout the book is extremely good and means you can pick the level at which you decide to explore a topic. ... If you′re looking for a book to cover the whole of General Medicine, then this book comes highly recommended." (Oxford Medical School Gazette , 2004) "It′s almost as if the pertinent parts of the standard pre–clinical texts have been cut and pasted into a book written by doctors, for doctors–to–be. Medical students have had to wait a long time for this kind of book to come along." ( SHO London ) "This book has a real feel of being clinically orientated and certainly isn′t one that I would leave on the shelf gathering dust when I first started as a house officer." ( SHO Leeds ) Reviews of the first edition "The next generation of medical books is here!" ( Pharm , Autumn 1997) "This is an absolutely fantastic book." ( Glasgow Medical Gazette , May 1997) "This new textbook seems to have hit the mark in what students want." ( Black Bag , October 1996) "The text is beautifully concise. This is a wonderfully useful book" ( Asclepiad Newspaper , September 1996) "The aim of creating a core medical text has been realised in this book." ( Nottingham University Medical School Gazette , September 1996) "Excellent use of colours, pictures, tables and the ′at a glance′ pages ... .This book raises the standard." ( St Thomas′ Gazette , August 1996) "It makes looking things up a pleasure, and the only danger is that you will get so interested that time will slip by. If you haven′t bought a textbook of medicine yet, I would not hesitate to recommend Axford as the best in its class of books." ( Cambridge Medicine ) "This book is a pleasure to read, and beautifully illustrated." ( Edinburgh Student Gazette )

Review

′One of those books I wish I had been given as a freebie in 2nd year, as it contains the depth of knowledge and need for finals, and doesn′t require you to look to other textbooks for extra help. Big and chunky, I reckon it could kick Kumar and Clark′s ass in a fight. And it′s got a prettier cover as well.′ 5th Year, Liverpool ′This book contains everything you need to know about medicine, without the nonsense. It is easy to understand, highlights the really important bits, and leaves you feeling confident that you know what you′re talking about.′ 4th Year Student – Aberdeen ′One of those books I wish I had been given as a freebie in 2nd year, as it contains the depth of knowledge you need for finals, and doesn′t require you to look to other textbooks for extra help. Big and chunky, I reckon it could kick Kumar and Clark′s ass in a fight. And it′s got a prettier cover as well.′ 5th Year Medical Student, University of Liverpool Sphincter, June 2004 ′ I found myself being drawn many times to read the book for its wonderful learning material that has helped me develop my background knowledge. As such, I believe all medical students will benefit immensely from this book. A definite winner worth investing in.′ 2nd Year MBChB, University of Edinburgh ′ I′ve been using Axford a lot for my revision and general reading. It′s excellent. The diagrams are great, but the actual content and style of the text is even better.′ 5th year medical student, Glasgow Medicine is easier to read, and you don′t have to go through pages and pages to find useful information, it just has far more clinically relevant information than Kumar and Clark.′ 3rd year medical student, Sheffield
