Amazing gear for IM RESIDENTS
This book has been my constant companion since the clinical years of my medical school. It is very concise and covers key topics in internal medicine--think of it as medical information in a small notebook, which conveniently fits in your coat pocket.

That said, take note that this is not a detailed medical textbook. It lacks detailed mechanism of diseases, for example, and is in no way a substitution for a proper textbook.
Good source to start when doing your nightshifts and ward rotation. It gives organization, a good source of primary evidence in medicine and where is the strong evidence. Definitely, if you want to be a better internist you should search more profoundly in other sources. But is well developed.
i didnt finish every topic, but i read most of it.
I am going to re-read it in my residency , as we who are in medical career need to read the book more than once to get to know it well.

best pocket in medicine so far , not for undergraduate though. :)

This is fine but the print is way too tiny. Got me through Residency. I used the Second Edition.
